Hello, God has given me something today in 2 Samuel 16:17-18 which says,
“And Absalom said to Hushai, “Is this your loyalty to your friend? Why did you not go with your friend?” And Hushai said to Absalom, “No, for whom the LORD and this people and all the men of Israel have chosen, his I will be, and with him I will remain.” (NIV)
So, what God has given me, is, that Absalom is asking Ahithophel why he is not with David, and Ahithophel is saying that whoever God chooses, and the people chose, was who he was going to serve, which is what we should do, follow Jesus, because He died on the cross with our sins, for us!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!! Thank you Jesus!
I don’t know that Absalom was the one that Ahithophel should serve, but it is a good picture of what we should do, follow Jesus, but it isn’t our choice, it may seem like it, but it is God’s choice, like the song that says, “I choose to follow…” we do not choose to follow, God chose us to follow, Thank you God! So it isn’t our choice to follow Jesus, God chooses whether we follow or not, but I KNOW that He sent His son, to die on a cross for us. And it isn’t all about following Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit, though that is something that (Lord-willing) we will do, it is about the GOSPEL!!! That Jesus died on the cross in our place.
Do you believe that Jesus died on the cross in our place?
