We each make many choices every day.
Some may be trivial as we choose what to wear or what to eat; others will influence matters in our work place; others will set the trend for our life as we choose a career, a partner for life, or a place to live. The most important choice that we can ever make is a choice to accept or reject the Lord Jesus Christ, Godâ€™s Son, as our personal Lord and Saviour.
This choice will decide the eternal destiny of our soul. It may seem illogical that a Man who was crucified almost 2,000 years ago can save us at this present time. However, when we appreciate the truth that â€œâ€¦Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third dayâ€¦and that He was seenâ€¦â€ (1 Corinthians 15:3-5), it becomes very logical and most acceptable.
No one can make this choice for you; you must make it for yourself. As you continue to read this little magazine, you will make a choice. Be sure you make the right one! â€œI have set before you life and deathâ€¦therefore, choose lifeâ€ (Deuteronomy 30:19).

What did it cost the Lord Jesus Christ?
