Christians Make Godly Choices
Bible study on making choices.

We make hundreds of choices everyday. To "choose" is to select freely after considering one's options. And "making a choice" is the act of choosing.

We Must Be Like Jesus
God has given us a free will to choose between good and evil. Isaiah, prophesying concerning the coming of Jesus, said, "Curds and honey He shall eat, that He may know to refuse the evil and choose the good" (Is. 7:15).

Jesus chose good over evil. And as His disciples, we must choose good over evil.

We Must Choose To Obey and Worship God
The most important thing that we choose is whether to obey God.

God said, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways" (Is. 55:8). We must choose between the sinful ways of the world and the righteous ways of God.

And Isaiah said of people who chose improper worship of the Lord, "Just as they have chosen their own ways" (Is. 66:3). We choose whether to obey or disobey the Lord; thus, we choose whether to worship as He commands.

To Obey God, We Must Choose to Fear Him
We must choose to fear God, hence to respect and reverence Him. If we choose to reverence God, we will obey Him. If we choose not to reverence God, we will not obey Him.

David said, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" (Ps. 111:10). And Solomon said, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction" (Pr. 1:7). Unless we choose to fear God, we will never attain to true knowledge and wisdom.

Everyone chooses to either respect or disrespect God. Have you chosen to fear God and obey Him?

To Obey God, We Must Choose to be Humble
People who fear God, humble themselves and submit to His will (1 Pet. 5:5-6).

God alone is wise (Rom. 16:27); hence, a person desiring to become wise must submit to God and acknowledge Him in all their ways. We can't lean on our own understanding -- we must lean upon God (Pr. 3:5-8).

No man will obey God, if he is not humble. Have you chosen to be humble?

To Obey God, We Must Choose to Love Him
When Jesus was asked, which is the great commandment of the law, he said, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself'" (Matt. 22:37-39).

Paul tells us, "Owe nothing to anyone except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law" (Rom. 13:8). "Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails" (1 Cor. 13:4-8).

In other words, we'll make godly choices if we love God and love our neighbor.

Who. . . .
Who makes godly choices? People who love God.

Who makes godly choices? Christians, just as Jesus chose good over evil when He walked upon the earth.
