Life is tough. Even those who put their faith and trust in Jesus have it hard.
But the difference between them and those who thought they had to do everything themselves is that the people called “Christians” know they aren’t all alone in this.
They have Jesus to reach out to, cry with, yell at, lean on, be comforted by, be loved by and reach out to, with love.
Who is this Jesus? He is God as well as the physical manifestation of God. That’s why the warmth of God’s love shines through Him, and the strength of God’s power emanates from Him. The Bible says Jesus went through everything mankind does, and yet he never sinned, he never fell short of God’s expectation.
You know you can’t say that. God knows that too. That’s why He sent Jesus – to pay the price for your sins, because that’s the only way you one day can be with Him in heaven. He had to send Jesus, because Jesus was the only one powerful enough to conquer death.
That’s how much God loves you: He loves you so much that he let Jesus be whipped, ridiculed and hung on a cross to die a very public, excruciatingly painful death so that you one day can be with Him in heaven.
It’s time for you to apologize to God for the wrongs you’ve done, to ask Jesus to guide you from here on out.
The Bible says angels in heaven will rejoice when you do this.
You’ll get further instruction and learn more about God’s love when you read your Bible – start with the New Testament book of John – and go to a Southern Baptist church.
