Women in Christ (logo) Notes from Nancy

 

Since Adam and Eve, each of us has had to make a major choice in our lives. We can choose to believe and obey God or to not believe and disobey. This choice was symbolized by the two trees in the Garden of Eden. There was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which led to death, or the tree of life.

The Israelites were presented the choice as they were going into the Promised Land.

“This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” Deuteronomy 30:19-20

We also must make the decision as to whether we will Choose Life. When we choose life, it is our first step into being transformed into the likeness of God. Each day we have choices that require us to make a decision whether we will continue to choose life.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” 2 Corinthians 5:17

Come join as we examine how we each become A New Creation.
