Free Agency has already begun in the NFL. It is a time when those no longer under contract can sign a new contract with any team that offers them one they like. By now most of your big-name, highly-prized free agents have signed new contracts, and a lot of money has been given to men who play a sport for a living. Players claim to sign contracts for a multitude of reasons such as the money, the location, the other players on the team, or a change to win the Super Bowl. All this free agency news has me thinking, "If I were a free agent, what would I do?" In a sense I am a free agent. God has given me the freedom to chose to submit to Him or to reject Him. My eternity hangs on my decision. So Let's look at the two options.

The devil offers some intriguing options. He offers us things that appeal to our senses (1 John 2:16-17). You see an example of this in the

Garden of Eden. In Genesis chapter three we see Satan tempt Eve to eat from the tree that God had said not to eat from. Verse six says that she saw that the tree was good for food, a delight to the eyes, and desirable to make one wise so she took and ate. She, as well as Adam, chose to reject God and follow Satan.

Hebrews 11:24-26 shows us the other choice. Moses chose to reject the passing pleasures of sin for the reproach of Christ because he was looking to the reward. There is no doubt that the Christian life is the best life (John 10:10), but it can be tough to say "no" to our fleshly desires. When pleasing God and going to heaven are our goals, saying no to sin can be a little easier.

Matthew 16:26 asks us, "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" What will your answer be?
