The Choice
And being found in appearance as a man, Jesus humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:9-11

On one sid stands the Crowd.
Jeering, baiting, demanding.
On the other stands a Peasant.
Swollen lips, lumpy eye. Lofty Promise.
One promises acceptance, the other a Cross.
One offers flesh and flash, the other offers faith.
The Crowd challenges, "Follow us and fit in."
Jesus promises, "Follow Me and stand out."
They promise to please. God promises to save.
A basin of Water? Or the Blood of the Savior?
God looks at you and asks...
Which will be your choice?
Too Good To Be True?
God cares for us so much...are we going to accept His offer of forgiveness?
