We make our choices based upon expected "rewards"; or which "alternative" makes us the happiest and gives us the most satisfaction. If that were TRUE WE WOULD ALL BE CHRISTIANS. Do we choose GOD or does HE choose us? John 1:12, "But to all who did receive HIM, HE gave the right to be children of GOD, BORN AGAIN, not of blood nor the will of flesh nor will of man...." First, "the LORD opens hearts to hear the message, so we can respond to the Gospel (Acts 16:14). Then we choose to "Believe" or "Not Believe" in JESUS. Our choice is not based upon "Rewards", it is based upon the Revelation of WHO GOD IS, GOD IS LOVE. Just as we did not "choose" to be born of Flesh; we cannot cause ourselves to be born again. It is OF GOD, and only GOD can do it. WHO CHOOSES WHO? WE CHOOSE EACH OTHER BASED UPON LOVE. LOVE BEING THE "GREATEST REWARD"; WHY AREN'T WE ALL CHRISTIANS?
