Choose Christ & Become Who You are Meant to be!

Choose Christ & Become Who You are Meant to be!
.
If you want to make a correct choice, choose Christ. “Thou mayest choose for thyself, for it is given unto thee” (Moses 3:17).
.
You’re not forced to choose Him, although you already did once. You’re free to change your mind, and no one is stopping you. Let me say that again; NO ONE IS STOPPING YOU.
.
We may choose liberty and eternal life by following Jesus Christ. We are also free to choose captivity and death by following Satan. (See 2 Nephi 2:27.) The right to choose between good and evil and to act for ourselves is called agency. (Gospel Principles Chap. 4)
.
Satan and His followers are not standing in your way if you decide to go against the Lord and His teachings—It’s clear roads ahead for you. At least that’s what He wants to lead you to believe.
.
Why do we get the opportunity to choose? A few reasons: If we were forced to choose the right, we would not be able to show what we would choose for ourselves. Also, we are happier doing things when we have made our own choices. (Gospel Principles Chap. 4)
.
That doesn’t mean the end results will bring us happiness. Our actions & our choices here on earth will determine our results when we meet our Maker.
.
President Howard Hunter instructed: The Lord’s invitation to follow him is individual & personal, and it is compelling. We cannot stand forever between two opinions. Each of us must at some time face the crucial question: “Whom say ye that I am?” (Matt. 16:15.)
.
Our personal salvation depends on our answer to that question and our commitment to that answer. Peter’s revealed answer was “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matt. 16:16). Many, many witnesses can give an identical answer by the same power, and I join with them in humble gratitude.
.
But we must each answer the question for ourselves—if not now, then later; for at the last day, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus is the Christ. Our challenge is to answer correctly and live accordingly before it is everlastingly too late. (End Quote).
.
Endure the hard road and follow Jesus Christ. Choose to hear Him & you’ll find eternal happiness.
