Make the RIGHT decision

"Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. " Joel 3:14

Today there are multitudes of both adults and teens who are sitting in church deciding whether or not they will serve the LORD. The prophet Joel, in his day, saw many in the same valley.

There are many who think they can serve God while still serving sin. Jesus clearly stated that:

"No man can serve two masters for either he will hate the one, and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other." Matthew 6:24

What is it that you hold on to? Is it God and His Word that you stick to? Or some secret sin that you have tucked away?

Many think the Bible is written mostly to people who are unsaved. But the truth is, the Bible is written to people who are suppose to be Christians, Christ-like, or like Christ.

"If ye continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed." John 8:31

It is God's desire that we continue in His word and that we be His disciples. The word disciple means learners; and learners learn.

"This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind, having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. But ye have not so learned Christ; of so be that ye have heard Him, and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt averting to the deceitful lust; and be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." Ephesians 4:17-24

Christ, the Holy Spirit, is our teacher. He is the one who teaches us to PUT OFF the old man and put on the new man.

This is the valley where multitudes are. They don't know whether to learn Christ or continue to walk in the vanity of their mind as other gentiles, which are people alienated from the life of God. Are you in this valley? A valley is a place between two mountains. God is on the mountains, high above the valley.

"And saying, The time is fulfilled, and kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel." Mark 1:15

He that hath an ear
Let him hear
What the Spirit is saying
What the people are praying

He that hath an eye
Let him see just fine
What Christ is doing
How the Spirit is soothing

Fingers and toes
Mouth and nose
Use these every day
But only use them in the right way

Eyes and ears
To see and hear
God gave them to you and me
Only to use them properly

He that hath feet
Let him swiftly greet
The Father's will
Until time be fulfilled
