Choices by Faith.
“By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter; Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward.” (Hebrews 11:24-26) KJV
Every day we have to make choices.
Our choices are according to our wishes and aspirations.
In Hebrews chapter 11, we find a list of people who made various choices.
They were directed by their faith in making their decisions.
For example, Moses’ parents had to choose between what?
They had to choose between their lives and their child’s life.
They chose to risk their lives to save their son’s life.
Moses had to choose.
He chose “rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin.”
At the age of 40, Moses was face to face with two different nations and two different destinies:
The Egyptians and the Jews have two different perspectives:
The glory of Egypt or carrying the Cross for Jesus.
What did Moses choose?
Well, we know the answer to this question, right?
Moses chose to suffer for the people of God.
Weird, isn’t it?
Looking at it from the world’s perspective, that’s “an insane man! “
Why did he make such a choice?
The world would have suggested that he remain in Pharaoh’s house and put a good word in for the Jews instead.
You can’t mix the two;
It is one or the other.
You have to choose every day:
Whether you’re going to live for God’s glory
Or for the passing pleasures of sin.
What choice are you making today?
Application for the Christian life:
Choose eternal life with Jesus.
This earth will surely pass away.
Choose Eternal Life
Regardless of the challenges here on earth.
