I can do everything right in raising my kids and they can still choose to not follow Christ. I can be the "perfect" witness to by friends, neighbors, and co-workers and they can still choose to decline the offer of salvation. The decision to follow the Lord or not is ultimately something I can only choose for myself for my own eternity.
Why would I choose for any path other than that of following Christ? Obviously many do, whether for money or power or other allures of this world or because the path of a Christian can be perceived as too difficult. Yet what did Judas gain? A few coins he took no pleasure in? I would far rather endure the temporary sufferings of this world as a wholehearted follower of the Lord for the eternal joy of Heaven. And although I cannot make the final decision for them, this reality of the temporary benefits of the world vs. the lasting satisfaction of choosing for Christ is what I hope and strive to share with all those that I would like to see join me one day in eternity.
