It’s Up to You

Choose wisely!

The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118: 22-24

The builder is God, the capstone is Jesus. Men rejected Jesus and cast Him aside; God placed Him at the top of all He has created. This is marvelous in that it demonstrates God’s unconditional love for us. By having Jesus take all our sins, sickness, and sorrows upon Himself, God has made possible that all our days will be days we can be glad and rejoice in. If we choose to.

Therein lies the problem for most of us; the fact we still hold the power to choose whether or not we will rejoice and be glad, and too often choose the opposite. I, for one, am guilty as charged. I am in awe of God’s unconditional love and should be in a constant good mood because of it. Unfortunately, I often find myself in a funk, unsure of exactly why I am in such a state. I get discouraged and concerned over things I should know God has under control, and I constantly have to remind myself how great things truly are.

Jesus gave all so that we can have all. We should rejoice and be glad. Always!
