TOPIC: The Choice Is Ours

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Romans 1:24-32

Yesterday, we saw that God makes Himself known to everyone but lets us decide whether to pursue a relationship with Him. Unfortunately, those who don’t choose God ultimately end up feeling restless and empty. And the reason is because He has “set eternity in [our] heart” (Ecclesiastes 3:11).

By God’s design, true satisfaction is found only in a relationship with Him. Without the Lord, people continuously seek new ways to temporarily fill their hearts. And that quest often leads them to pursue unworthy idols: status, money, happiness, health, achievement, knowledge, or something else.

In his letter to the church at Rome, Paul described the phenomenon this way: “For they exchanged the truth of God for falsehood, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever” (1:25). Wouldn’t you rather serve truth than falsehood? Wouldn’t you rather serve the Creator, who is blessed forever, rather than the creature?

Scripture says that “the truth will set you free” (John 8:32) and “in [the Creator’s] presence is fullness of joy” (Psalm 16:11). We can choose a mediocre, unfulfilling life without the Lord, or we can have a rich and satisfying relationship with Him. It’s never too late to change your mind.

Bible in One Year: Matthew 22-24
