Choose (May 13, 2018)

Some of you will remember the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Towards the end of the movie, Indiana Jones is searching for the Cup of Christ (the Holy Grail), and he is faced with choosing the right cup among a large collection of ornate goblets. There is an old knight that has stood guard over the Grail for centuries. He watches silently as Indiana tries to figure out which cup is the Cup of Christ. If he chooses the Grail, he will receive eternal life. If he chooses the wrong cup, he will receive death. Finally, Indiana chooses the right cup, and the knight announces in a ghostly voice: “You have chosen…wisely.” While our decisions in life may not be that drastic or fantastic, we have so many choices that we go through every day, some good, some bad. But an important choice that we make that impacts our entire lives and those around us is Who we follow. We have a choice to follow God. God doesn’t force us into a relationship with Him. Where’s the love in that? He wants us to make the choice. Have you made the decision to follow God in your life?
