Personal Decision

Key Verse

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

Text — Romans 10:11-13


Personal things are things that belong to or affect someone rather than anyone else. It is something that you have to do by yourself that cannot be done for you by someone else. For example, you need to rest or sleep when tired to get strengthened and refreshed. A hungry child needs to eat food with his or her mouth for the hunger to be satisfied. Sin with its punishment is personal, even if it was committed with other people. Likewise, forgiveness is personal. It is only given to the person that asks for it. The sinful child must be sorry for the sins committed and believe in Jesus Christ as his or her Saviour, in order to receive forgiveness and have his or her name written in the Book of Life. This cannot be done for anyone, it is personal.

The choice between heaven and hell is personal. Decide to follow and live for Jesus Christ, even if others would not. Stand by your decision to believe and stand for the truth of the word of God. The Bible says we should not do evil because others do it. Make up your mind that you will not follow the bad examples you see around you. Daniel, Joseph, Samuel and many others chose to live for God. What is your decision? Ask God for grace to live and obey Jesus Christ.
