My opinion is…..
What are you choosing? A gift for a wedding? Baby shower? What Dr to use? Where to work? What foods to eat? Some of these might be important and some not so much.
The one below holds eternal life and death. I would say it is pretty important.
And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.
We are called to a courageous faith in Christ Jesus. There is a clear warning, and it articulates that there are 2 sides to the war for our souls – there’s the side of those who worship the beast and his image, and the side who keep the commandments of God by faith in Jesus. The NLT says that we must, “endure persecution patiently”. Let this truth be a reminder that there is urgency to our bearing the gospel message. The world and everything in it is on the clock! Share the good news and seek always to remain in the love of Christ Jesus our Lord.
