Weekly Challenge: Live everyday focusing on the destination you are working towards—Heaven.
As we begin the holiday season, let’s not forget the reason for the season-Jesus. The miracle of Jesus’ birth is something to celebrate, but what he done on the cross should inspire us to live better lives. A man chose to die, so each of us could live forever in a place that surpasses peace. We should be living everyday with this in mind, making choices and having action to represent the love of Christ.
The pain Jesus endured is more than any situation we are faced with. Jesus died so we could live together forever in harmony.
We should not let the surroundings of our lives overtake us. Our emotions and feelings are real, but the love of Jesus is more real. Jesus is the answer for all the heaviness anyone of us are carrying, Jesus is the answer for any financial burden we may be facing, Jesus is the answer for any pain, hurt, grief or guilt we may have. Simply and plainly stated, JESUS IS THE ANSWER!
Knowing Jesus is the answer is only half the knowledge, applying His perfect love is the other half. We must put action to our faith and step into the understanding and healing, which was done on the cross. We must not live to entertain others, rather we should live to entertain where we want to spend eternity.
The best Christmas gift any of us could give another is increasing our relationship with Jesus Christ.
Get out this weekend and enjoy the Christmas Downtown Festivities and spread the love of Jesus.
Romans 5:3-5 “Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.”
1 Peter 3:18 “For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit.”
2 Corinthians 5:21 “God made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.”
