Okay so you see the three doors above. Let's say the doors are marked as such.
Door # 1 is LUST; Door #2 is PRAYER; Door #3 is GREED. So now go ahead & pick a door it's your choice. By the way this isn't a trick question. But what if I told you that whichever door you pick is a GUARANTEED WIN!
By default I know most Christian's would choose prayer. Why not? That is the most politically correct answer, right? But that's what is so awesome about God he gives us this amazing thing called freewill. I'm not by any means encouraging one to engage in lust, greed, or any other sinful behavior. But God does give us a choice daily it's up to us to decide. He's even so cool about it that if we repent for our sins he promises to forgive us. Now this doesn't give us a free pass because he does expect us to live as holy as possible. But it sure does put your mind at ease a bit.
Remember 1 Peter 1:16
For it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
So here's the awesone part, the exchange. Christ blood on the cross is the segue to the best gift ever! The gift of eternal life.
John 3:16 pretty much sums it up in a nutshell.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one & only son that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life".
You may or may not recall but at the very end right before Christ died there was a murderer on the cross right beside him that repented & accepted Christ as Lord. I mean dude waited until the very last seconds of his life. And God still welcomed him home with open arms. Despite all the dirt he had done on earth.
So you see it really doesn't matter which door you select. The prize was already given way back on Calvary. God chose you from the beginning of time. You were created in his likeness & image. He wanted to ensure that you spent an eternity with him. How dope is that?
It's kind of hard to find & or OWN your "it" if you don't know who or what your source is & what privileges come along with your position. That is, your position in Christ Jesus! I challenge you, as well as encourage each of you to get more acquainted with your Heavenly Father.
Because on the other side of whichever door you select is a loving God who is just waiting on you to take him up on his offer. So here it is laid out once more for you. He has offered his one & only son's life in exchange for your sins.... As far as I can tell this is the prize of a lifetime!
I extend love & peace to each of you. I pray that you find your "it" and you OWN IT. That the chains of this world be broken off of you & that you walk in the light that God intended you to walk in.
With dedication & servitude
