Decisions of Faith
Life is composed of so many choices. Some decisions in life are arbitrary – like choosing what you wore to church today – pants or pjs. Some decisions are important – like buying a car or a home. And a few life decisions can be defining: decisions about following Jesus, decisions about marriage, decisions about your career – these critical, life defining decisions of faith require loyal love and consistent character.
In the book of Ruth (Ruth 1:14-19) two young women, Orpah and Ruth, are faced with a major, life-defining moment, and each of them makes a decision that determines their future. In the same way, our defining decisions today will impact our future forever. Difficult life decisions require commitment based on loyal love. Eternal decisions require faith in Jesus Christ alone.
