MORNINGTIME 2639
 
ACCORDING AS HE HATH CHOSEN US IN HIM BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love: HAVING PREDESTINATED US unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in the Beloved. In whom we have redemption through His Blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace; Wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself: Ephesians 1:4-9. Lots of good promises and blessings to those who belong to Christ, IF YOU WERE CHOSEN, (predestinated), before time began. So many people get all tangled up thinking they have no chance of getting to heaven because they weren't picked by Christ thousands of years ago. NOT SO, and the answer is very simple. You must know, and remember, that God is everywhere and lives in ALL time and space all the time. It takes us 24 hours to travel through one day. God is already there, at the beginning AND the end, all the time. He knows every choice you'll ever make, AND HE LOVES YOU ANYWAY!!! Here's the difference. HE knows everything about us, BUT WE DON'T, we have to live out each day one minute at a time AND FREELY MAKE OUR OWN CHOICES ALL THROUGH THE DAY, AS THE DAY UNFOLDS. You don't know what choices you're going to make in 10 minutes, or in 10 days, but the Lord does. We get to freely choose to Love and Adore Him, or to hate and reject Him, IT IS OUR CHOICE. And OUR freely made choices will send us to Heaven, or to Hell, but it is our choice. God doesn't make us do anything, we choose, and do, as we see fit. Just because He knows all our choices doesn't negate the fact, WE STILL GET TO MAKE THOSE CHOICES, all of our own free will. Those choices include Freely Following Christ, or not. Follow Him,  and choose to, Be Blessed.
