Jeremiah 21:8 The phrase great minds think alike is often used when one or another come up with the same thought. Moses, Joshua, Elijah and Jeremiah thought alike, talked alike, and wrote alike in many ways. Listen to their words:
Jeremiah: ‘I will give you a choice between two courses of action. One will result in life; the other will result in death.[Jer 21]
Moses: Today I invoke heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set life and death, blessing and curse, before you. Therefore choose life. [Deut 30]
Joshua: Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve [Josh 24]
Elijah: How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him, but if Baal, follow him. [1Kings 18]
The people were at a crossroads. They could choose God’s way or the world’s way. Moses said: It is in your mouth and in your mind so that you can do it. [Deut 30:14]
But men do not like rules; they can delay or choose their own way. Jesus said; For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one who will save it.
Choose God and life or Baal and death. What will you choose?
