Sometimes, even after we taste the goodness of God, we go our own way. It doesn’t make sense. It’s confounding behavior. But we still do it. Thankfully, the God we serve is a compassionate God, full of grace and mercy. He waits for us to return to Him. He waits with open arms. He calls us to Him. He gives us every reason to come back. But ultimately, the choice is ours. What will we choose? Life? Or death? Elizabeth chose life. What will you choose?

Elizabeth’s Christian Testimony
Is your faith weak? Is it difficult to follow God? Look at it this way. You can choose life or you can choose death. Which one do you want?
Faith in God is not something that comes naturally. Sin comes naturally. Faith is a conscious decision and requires constant effort. You can choose to believe, to trust, to follow, to avoid sin. You can choose life. It really comes down to a simple choice. Of course, life is much more complex than that. Addictions, lifestyles, environment, thought processes, habits . . . all these factors play into our daily decisions. If losing weight and being buff were just simple decisions, then everyone would be fit and trim. The human psyche is complex. But ultimately, if you push all the junk aside, every decision you make is a choice. Everything you eat, everything you read, everything you focus on, everything you say—it’s all a choice. You choose. What will you choose? Life? Or death?
Three Nails—a poem about the suffering Jesus endured for us on the cross.
A Christian poem reminding us that not only did Jesus suffer—He suffered so that we could live forever. He suffered so that death could be defeated.
The Great Divide – a poem about the most important choice we will ever face – life or death. Which will you choose?
This poem by Cindy (I love Cindy’s poems) sets out the fact that we all have a clear and conscious choice to make. We can choose Jesus, and choose to live, or we can choose to reject Him, and suffer the consequences.
Will you choose life? Or death?
The Great Divide
Katherine’s testimony reminds us that God has a plan for each and every one of us. It’s up to us to accept His mercy.
Sometimes we live out our lives, knowing fully well God’s mercy has protected us from all sorts of evils and dangers, but we continue to do our own thing and ignore the truth.
God’s mercy is unfailing. He waits for us. He calls to us. But none of us know when our time is done. Death comes like a thief in the night. Don’t wait any longer. God’s calling out to you . . . right now. He’s saying, “I’m here for you. I’ll bless you. I’ll show you a life of fulfillment beyond your wildest imaginations.” You just have to decide. Are you going to accept His gift and live for Him? Or will you choose the temporary pleasures of this life?

A Christian poem about the defeat of death and the glory that awaits the followers of the Jesus of the Bible.
Tom sent in this poem, well, at the end of February, and I’m just getting to it. So that tells you about my back-log. Sorry . . . if you’ve submitted a poem or a testimony, trust me, it’ll get up here someday.
Anyway, this poem reminds us that one day Jesus will set up His kingdom, gather His own to Him and defeat death. What a glorious day that will be.
In the End
Near-death experiences are real. People have them. Do they reveal anything real to us about the after-life?
Scripture talks about David descending into hell. Did he really go there and see what it was like and then come back? Did David have near-death experiences? Can we take stock in our own near-death experiences or those we hear recounted to us by others? Do they reveal God’s truth about heaven and hell to us?
Hell and Near-death Experiences
Choose life, that you might live. The life He gives, He gives forever. A poem.
We all have a simple choice: we can choose life or we can choose death. God suggests (and I agree with Him) that we choose life.
He alone can provide peace. It’s up to you whether or not you want to experience it.
Where is the Peace
This poem reminds us that Jesus lived a sinless life and died a sinner’s death.
Jesus lived a sinless life. Then sinners tortured and killed Him. He died a sinner’s death. He died the death of a criminal, ridiculed and mocked.
Read this poem from Robbie:
A Sinless Man – A Sinner’s Death
As life ebbed from the two thieves, they took radically different paths. One chose life, the other death. Which will you choose?
Have you given any thought to what it must have been like for Jesus to watch the two thieves, as He hung on the cross? The thieves paint a perfect picture of us; one chose life, and the other chose death.
Just like them, we have a choice. We can choose to follow Jesus, and accept the invitation to His eternal party, or we can reject Him and choose never-ending suffering.
The choice seems easy to me.
