We Are Free To Choose
You and I are free to choose whom, or what, we will serve. We are no longer slaves to the sin nature. Jesus set us free!
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36 (KJV)
We need to determine, once and for all, to seek and serve God:
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve … : but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 (KJV)
We say that we want to “know God” and that we want to “serve Him.” If this were really true we would not be so quick to tell Him how to run our lives nor would we get so mad when He determines to do things other than our way.
The choice is clear cut and well defined. We must arise, and go down to the potter’s house to be set back upon the Great Potter’s wheel:
Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Jeremiah 18:2 (KJV)
Yielding to the wheel, obeying the touch of the Master’s hand, allowing ourselves to be shaped by our Creator is the choice we must make if ever we are to know Him. It is there, on the potter’s wheel, that we will receive the revelation that we say we so desperately desire. There we will hear Him say,
“I will cause thee to hear My words.”
