Davidisms - No Man Suddenly Becomes Base

British pastor F. B. Meyer once wrote: “No man suddenly becomes base.” What did he mean? All people are the sum total of all our life choices. When we repeatedly make poor decisions - those that go against what Scripture teaches - over time we move slowly but surely away from God. Degradation isn’t something that happens suddenly. Instead, it’s erosion over a period of time. Each day we have a choice to make: Who will I serve? Will I give in to my fleshly desires? Will I lie? Intentionally sin? Or will I choose the truth? Obedience. God’s will. Will I do the right thing no matter the cost? It’s the same thing Joshua said to the leaders of Israel: “And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15). Therefore, be faithful with every decision in life, whether great or small. Make sure you choose the Lord in every decision you make. Choose his will. His kingdom. His desires. Over time, you will either be conformed to the image of Jesus (Romans 8:29), or you will become increasingly selfish. It’s your choice. Just always remember: No man suddenly becomes base.
