Discover Hope This Christmas
Let’s take a test, fill in the blank, “If only I had _____, then my life would be full and good.”
What would you place in that blank today? Some examples might be: if I only had enough money, the perfect mate, a better job or more friends. Nothing wrong with any of these and no doubt each of these speak to a longing in each of our hearts.
However, not just these examples, but anything we put in that blank has the potential to let us down and not fulfil our greatest expectations.
Truth is, if you and I put anything or anyone in that blank other than Jesus, we are living on a false hope and only disappointment will follow. Just like the child who begged for a bike for Christmas and got socks instead.
We need to Discover Hope this Christmas!!!
This Christmas make sure Jesus is the person who fills up the blank space in the question asked but also fills up the blank space in your heart.
In Jesus we have hope. He is our hope not just at Christmas, but He is our hope for every day. It is a hope that is based on a belief that God is at work in our lives and He can be trusted to keep His word. He is our anchor in the storm and the one we look to every day and especially on the day we leave this life, a belief in Jesus gives us security for today and for all eternity.
Here is the most important question? Do have a personal relationship with Jesus? If the answer is no, I have never been saved, follow the Red Path. If the answer is yes, you have been saved, but you feel like you need to be renewed in your hope, there is a path for you, skip down and take the Blue Path!
How can I have a personal relationship with Jesus: follow the Red Path!
Your Life ==== The Bible says: “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23 / “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” Romans 6:23 In order to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, we must admit we are a sinner and need Him!
Your LORD/Your Leader ==== The Bible says: “God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God” 2 Corinthians 5:21
Jesus death on the cross is essential to our forgiveness. He took our place. Our choices take us away from God, but Jesus’ choice to die in our place gives us the opportunity to be forgiven of our sins and to live with God forever!
Remember, “the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Three days after Jesus died on the cross, He rose from the grave, which means He has the power to give life and hope to all who will call Him Lord!
