Be wise and make Him your choice.



20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. Rev3:20,

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:John1:12

Choose the Better Life
by Rick Warren

“Listen! I am standing and knocking at your door. If you hear my voice ad open the door, I will come in and we will eat together.” (Revelation 3:20 CEV)

When I was a kid, my mom fed me SpaghettiOs. I thought it was the best food ever! Then I discovered In-N-Out burgers. I then went from the good life to the better life. SpaghettiOs were good, but a juicy In-N-Out burger is much better.

You might think you have a good life right now, but if you could have an even better life, wouldn’t you want to know about it?

Unfortunately, what keeps us from grabbing hold of that better life is an irrational sense of self-sufficiency. We think we’re doing fine on our own.

Psalm 10:4 says it like this: “The wicked people are too proud. They do not look for God; there is no room for God in their thoughts” (NCV).

Just like the innkeeper in the first Christmas story (Luke 2), we don’t believe we need more guests. We think we have everything we need.

There’s only one problem with that arrogance: You miss the very reason God created you. God made you so that you might have a relationship with him. You’ll never fulfill his purpose for your life, which is far grander and more significant than you ever imagined, unless you are plugged in to God, your true power source.

But the good news is that it’s not too late. You can have a relationship with him no matter what has happened in your past, no matter how many times you’ve rejected him before.

God made it so simple that anyone can understand. It’s only three words: Invite him in.

Jesus said, “Listen! I am standing and knocking at your door. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in and we will eat together” (Revelation 3:20 CEV).

Jesus is knocking at your door. Take hold of the better life by letting him into your life. Make him the boss of your life.

It’ll change everything.

Talk It Over

  • In what ways has pride kept you from experiencing God’s better life for you?
  • What are some good activities in your life that have crowded out your relationship with Jesus?
  • What does it mean to have a boss in a particular area of your life? What does it mean to make Jesus the “boss” of your life?

The Reason For the Season ( by Fenny West)

The Reason For the Season

birth of Jesus2 birth of Jesus4 purpose jesus in Christ what have and are pray without ceasing

He Descended from the Heights

to Lift Us from the Depths

He laid aside His majesty

To change our story.


He stooped down so low

To free us from the foe;

To lift us up from the dung.

Despite all our wrong.

He emptied Himself

To make us one with Himself.

He took our pain

To give us a gain

Took from the devil, the reins

That we with Him will reign.



He drained His life.

To fill us with life.

He clothe us with His garment

Like a Groom full of commitment.

He brought us into His parlour

Because of His favour.

He washed us with His blood

To remove the stains from sin-mud.

He made us us worthy of his embrace.

All because of His great, super-abundant grace.

He interceded for us

To justify us.

He made us accepted in the beloved.

Because of His great love.

He took our place on the cross

So to the Father we can cross.

Today, if you hear His Voice

Make Him your prime choice.

Because He is the reason

For the season.

He Descended from the Heights

to Lift Us from the Depths

“For your sakes he became poor.”
2 Corinthians 8:9

The Lord Jesus Christ was eternally rich, glorious, and exalted; but “though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor.” As the rich saint cannot be true in his communion with his poor brethren unless of his substance he ministers to their necessities, so (the same rule holding with the head as between the members), it is impossible that our Divine Lord could have had fellowship with us unless he had imparted to us of his own abounding wealth, and had become poor to make us rich. Had he remained upon his throne of glory, and had we continued in the ruins of the fall without receiving his salvation, communion would have been impossible on both sides. Our position by the fall, apart from the covenant of grace, made it as impossible for fallen man to communicate with God as it is for Belial to be in concord with Christ. In order, therefore, that communion might be compassed, it was necessary that the rich kinsman should bestow his estate upon his poor relatives, that the righteous Saviour should give to his sinning brethren of his own perfection, and that we, the poor and guilty, should receive of his fulness grace for grace; that thus in giving and receiving, the One might descend from the heights, and the other ascend from the depths, and so be able to embrace each other in true and hearty fellowship. Poverty must be enriched by him in whom are infinite treasures before it can venture to commune; and guilt must lose itself in imputed and imparted righteousness ere the soul can walk in fellowship with purity. Jesus must clothe his people in his own garments, or he cannot admit them into his palace of glory; and he must wash them in his own blood, or else they will be too defiled for the embrace of his fellowship.

O believer, herein is love! For your sake the Lord Jesus “became poor” that he might lift you up into communion with himself.
