Then Jesus entered the scene. He came from Heaven to Earth with a choice. He had the power to live godly. He had the power to lay down his life and take it up again. He had the power to suffer for our sins...or not.
He, who had a choice, chose to die rather than to live, to suffer rather than to rest, to be mocked, beaten, and spat upon rather than to call on the host of Heaven. I was already condemned, without hope, with only my sin. Like the hopeless hordes of humanity, I was headed for a devil's hell, and that without remedy. I had no choice.
But at his choice I might could choose! Because he chose suffering and death, and he arose from death, I now can choose. I can choose life...or not. Now that I CAN choose, I MUST choose. This life will not come to me by accident. I must deliberately choose to live for Jesus.
Certainly the Old Bible is true, "I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life" Deuteronomy 30:19
