The Gift of Will

I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the Lord sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20, KJV)

Since the beginning of time, God has given us a gift to make our own choices. This gift from God of making our own choices started with Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve was giving a commandment and was provided with abundant life. Out of the abundance of God’s provision there is life, but God made only one thing that could bring forth death. That one thing was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in which God commanded not to eat the fruit thereof. While we are in these days and times under the dispensation of God’s grace through His Son Jesus Christ, let us take advantage of God’s goodness and abundance of provision to repent and to make the right choice for the glory God.
