Are we ready now to take up the next step in finding peace with God? You are now ready to forsake your past sinful life. You are no longer headed away from God, but you are moving toward his love and mercy and protection. You have made your decision. You have repented; you have chosen the right road, even though it may be a difficult one. You have chosen the road that Moses took almost 3,500 years ago when he renounced his right to the throne of Egypt and decided in favor of God.
Moses was forty years old when he fled Egypt for fear of his life, forty years later he came back to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. What had changed? He had made his great decision. He concluded that faith and truth in company with agony and hardship were better than wealth and fame and the absence of God's love. Few men in history have been called upon to make a more difficult decision than his.
