For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God. Romans, Chapter 8, verses 13-16.
Choose Your Own Adventure books were pretty popular at one time. You would be reading an adventure story and then were given choices. If you turned to one set of pages listed, the story would end one way and if you turned to some of the other pages listed, it would end totally different ways.
We can live worldly lives of the flesh and have a less than pleasant ending or we can realize where we have gone off-track and turn our lives around to focus on God and what He wants for us. When we choose to live through the Spirit, we will have eternal life with Jesus in heaven. Which ending do you choose????
