Decisions are sometimes hard to come by. There are some decisions that are easily made because there are clear distinctions that make up our minds quickly. Other decisions are agonizing because there is a close run for both sides.
Decisions about our religious welfare are often put on the back burner and will be made at a later date. The decision about where my family and I will attend church is sometimes tough. There are lots of competing facts that need to be considered. Is it a Bible church? Will my family fit in with the people? Will I be fed good solid food instead of rehashed traditions from the past? Is there a balance in the teaching and worshiping in this church? Others could be added to this list.
Why are there not more people attending church? I think that most people who don’t attend worship have not really made an outward decision not to attend. I think they have just not made a decision toattend. It is likely that they have just remained in the “valley of indecision” and may end up dying there.
They may not realize that not to make a decision to follow Jesus aggressively and faithfully is to make a decision not to give Him our live and devotion. In this “Valley of indecision” one lingers to his own detriment. Children grow up and are lost. Families allow things to get out of balance and some break up. Precious time for growing a caring faith is lost. Growing old without an active faith is a downer that could last for an eternity. Make the positive decision to faithfulness to God today. As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work. (John 9:4)
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near in the valley of decision.
