Choose Christ

Guest Post by Mrs. Kylie Lyday

Life is full of choices. Take a moment and think of all the many choices you make daily.

Now that you have thought for a moment, I hope one of your choices each day is to walk with our Lord and Savior. I don’t say that lightly. You choose to do something with the relationship you have with Christ.

As a youth director, I have many students wonder what their purpose may be in this world. What will they do after they graduate, will they get to continue playing the game they love, who will they marry, what type of family they will raise, & yes it goes on and on. How I respond and encourage them is simply reminding them the Lord reveals our purpose to us. That’s simply to live out the great commission we find in Matthew; “Therefore go, making disciples of all nations”. Although that’s demanded, he leaves it up to us to act upon. Does that make sense? You choose to love others as yourself, you choose to be positive, you choose to put on your armor of Christ daily, you choose to share, & to put your full trust in him as your personal Savior.

Your choices matter. It’s time to be reminded of your purpose, and your mission.

Josh Wilson said it best, “I refuse to sit around and wait for someone else to do what God has called me to do myself.”

It’s deep, but we will all stand one day & either be told, “Well done, my good & faithful servant.” (Matthew 25) or “Depart from me, I never knew you.” (Matthew 7) That is why I do not take this lightly, and I hope you don’t either. Choose to be known by your fruit. Choose obedience. It’s not easy, and you definitely will not be perfect. That’s okay. Once you begin to choose his way, his path, you have a new peace and strength to face

this world daily. You realize the importance of choosing the Heavenly Father. You can’t make it without him.

He’s counting on you to go and make disciples. Today, begin doing what you were made to do, and that’s choose Christ.
