In life you have a lot of choices to make. Some of them are more difficult to make. Others are quite simple. The Bible says in John 13:34, in we are to choose to love another, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another." In 1 Corinthians 10:31 that may choose, what we, "eat or drink, or whatever you do" as long we, "do all to the glory of God."

However the biggest choice the Bible says we need to make according to John 3:16 is whether to "believes in him (Jesus) should not perish but have eternal life." This poem is about the choice to follow Jesus.

You love to make

Your own choices

You choose

Where you want to go

You choose

What you want to know

You choose

What you want to do

You choose

With who

You choose

What you want to be

You choose

To see

But in the end

There's only one choice

That matters

Where you will spend eternity

Choose Heaven

Choose Hell

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

— John 3:16

Don't contemplate

By then it may

Be to late

Choose Heaven

Choose Hell

You choose

The Clothes you wear

You choose

Who does your hair

You choose

The shoes on your feet

You choose

The people you want to meet

But in the end

There's only one choice

That matters

Where you will spend eternity

Choose Heaven

Choose Hell

In the only it is the

Only choice that matters
