Which story are you telling with your life?
Are you leading a life of vain pursuit, that will ultimately end in the grave. Or has the resurrected Savior brought your life new meaning, hope, and a future?
1. I Found A Love
There’s more to this life than just walking toward the grave.
If you get to the end of your life and all you’ve done is slowly walk to the grave, you’ve missed it. “You’re missing the most beautiful loving, thing in the world which is Jesus raised from the dead, ready to come in and invade, and change, and live, and give true life.
2. The Lonely Road of Hope
If you are in the Word. Than the Word is in you. Hope is in you as a result of that.
If you’re not in the Word, the devil will just show you that long and lonely road, and you forget that God is with you, and that He laid that road, and He knows.
Hope will come alive when you see that over and over and over in the Word that God is who He says, He does what He does, He mean what He says, He keeps His promises, He’s faithful, and true, and right.
3. A Sea Of Forgiveness
Forgiveness doesn’t seem fair until you need it.
When we come to be born again, God doesn’t just say you’re forgiven, He says that you’re not guilty.
God’s love is an agape love. It is an unconditional, it’s caring, it’s going to persons even when it’s difficult, it just keeps going, unlike any kind of human love.
Forgiven people, forgive people.
4. A Sending Love
Jesus has the authority to give us the orders to go and make disciples. He has the authority to send us out to share the gospel. And He has the ability to help us carry out what He's given for us to do.
We will not go at it alone; we do not make disciples alone! So go, make, teach! Go love!
5. The Gift That Is Better Than Christ With Us
The gift that is better than Christ with us, is Christ in us!
Jesus bombarded the earth to start a great work of himself, but the Spirit bombarded the earth to continue the started work in the church.
For those of us who are in Christ, the Holy Spirit has taken up residence in our lives. The Holy Spirit cannot help but point back to, make much of, and glorify Jesus!
6. In The Eye Of The Savior
You take out Jesus, and there is no courage. There is nothing but fear!
When you're in the eye of the storm, remember you're in the eye of the Savior!
