I Choose Jesus. Everday, Everytime, Everywhere - Opetumo Temitope


As Believers, we are like crew members on a navy ship who operates under the authority of the Captain (Jesus Christ). Without obeying orders (commandments) from the Captain, our endeavors are futile (in the long run). 


In Proverbs 16:25 "There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death" - NJKV. That's why we need to enquire of God (your Captain) on what to do per time (every aspect of your life), so as to avoid moving out of His Will for your lives. 

The very moment you proclaimed the "I accept Jesus as my Lord and personal Saviour" confession, is the day you became a crew member on Jesus' ship (your lives aren't yours any longer). 

Crew members:
  • forsake their will for the Captain (Luke 14:33)
  • do as they've been commanded (John 13:35)
  • use their skills, expertise, education and talents for the good of the ship (2 Peter 1:3)
Never looking back, because the moment we do, we are not fit for His Kingdom. Luke 9:62.
This is a race that has been set before us and His Grace is sufficient to see us to the finish line. 2 Corinthians 12 : 9.

Let's be like Paul (an Apostle), who having persevered (through the storm, waves, hurricane and tides) , said "I have fought the GOOD fight, I have FINISHED the race, I have KEPT the Faith" - 2 Timothy 4 : 7 (NJKV).

Jesus (your Captain) holds the ULTIMATE authority and responsibility of the vessel (you) and ALL those on board (other believers), if you let Him lead you.
