Listen to the Podcast

 Deuteronomy 30:19b-20a
“I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you…may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life.”

Word

God, what are you saying to me through this Scripture?

This verse sets two opposite destinations before us:  “life and death.” Sin leads to death, and many unwise choices have deadly consequences, too. God’s ways lead to life – and not just physical life but eternal life. You get to choose your destination in this. Your choices today determine your life along the way. ~ What are some choices that lead toward death? (think about: drugs, alcohol, secret suicide social media, dangerous games, certain tv shows or movies with bad content…) How do God’s ways lead to life?

Why

God, why does this matter?

Loving and obeying God affects not just how you honor Him, but also how you live. As you “choose life” you will value life because He values life. As you “choose life” you will make life-giving choices and be a life-giving person. God’s Word says this is His path of blessing! What a great destination! ~ How does obeying God lead you to value others’ lives and your own?  What are some blessings from choosing life?

What

God, What Else Does Your Word Say About This?

God is the one who created life in the first place, and His entire Word shows us how to live it. To “choose life” we must first of all choose to follow Him! Scripture says, “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life” (John 3:36). How you live then flows out of who you are living for. ~ Have you chosen to follow Jesus? How can you know God’s paths of life?

Worship

God, How do you want me to respond to this truth?

Choosing life affects your choices along the way. Choosing life may mean you stop watching certain tv shows or delete a dangerous social media account. It may mean you raise money for a crisis pregnancy center or help refugees. Choosing life may mean you go tell a trusted adult when a friend admits suicidal thoughts – – – or you tell someone when YOU are the one struggling. There are so many ways you can “choose life,” and God’s Word says this is literally “in your heart, so that you can do it” (Deuteronomy 30:14). ~ What is one practical way you can choose life today? Let’s pray about this!

Deuteronomy 30:19b-20a
“I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you…may live, loving the Lord your God, obeying his voice and holding fast to him, for he is your life.”
