The Decision Of The Wise

Key Verse

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Isaiah 1:18

Text — Isaiah 1:11-18


During the break time in school, Susan was sitting at the back of the class thinking about how her life had been. She was always angry and not performing well in her studies. While she was in her sober mood, Faith, one of her classmates, came to seat by her side. She encouraged Susan to seek help from God concerning her situation by first inviting Jesus into her life as her Lord and Saviour. Susan accepted her invitation and she surrendered her life to Christ. From then on, things turn around for good in her life.

From our Bible passage, the Lord is calling you to come reason with Him and make a wise decision to follow Him. You cannot remain in your sin and expect God to come to your rescue. God did not want to condemn and destroy sinners. He offered full forgiveness and pardon if they would only repent, put away evil, strive to do right and obey His word. God’s forgiveness is now available for all sinners. All you need do is to:
i. Acknowledge that you are a sinner.
ii. Confess and repent of your sins.
iii. Pray and ask for forgiveness and cleansing of your heart with the blood of Jesus.
iv. Ask Jesus into your heart as your personal Saviour and Lord.

This is the wisest decision you can make in this life.
