Thankfully, George recovered. His next album was called Cold Hard Truth and on
it was a hit song titled “Choices”. Ironically, the hook line of the song says, “I’m
living and dying with the choices I made.”
1. We all make choices every day

2. Some are mundane; others make the difference between life and death.

C. We, as a congregation, face some life and death decisions
1. We stand at a crossroads and have to choose which way we’re going to go

2. As we study the Scriptures this morning, I encourage every one of us to make the
right decision.

A. Everything we do as Christians and as a Christian church should be ground in the Bible
1. This morning we’re going to look at a passage speaks to our situation today

2. Deut. 30:11-20 – “Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your
reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, ‘Who will ascend into heaven to get it and
proclaim it to s so we may obey it?’ Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, ‘Who will cross
the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?’ No, the word is very near you; it is in your
mouth and in your heart so you may obey it. See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and
destruction. For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his
commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in
the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you
are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will
certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and
possess. This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and
death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live and that you may
love the LORD your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the LORD is your life, and he will
give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”

B. Some important points from this scripture passage:
1. What God asks is not too hard to do
--It’s not beyond our reach or grasp

2. God simply wants obedience to what He asks
