Attention Spiritual Suffers…
Experts are suspect
While so-called experts in D.C. and your doctor’s office are lecturing you on what’s best for you, you’re wondering: Is this all there is?
Is there more to life than this?
Well, consider this to improve you…
The greatest gift to you is Jesus.
Because Jesus is the key to a rewarding temporary and everlasting life.
Why do I say that?
Because, your life matters.
For Your Own Good You Must Decide
“I’m not interested in Christianity,” you say.
“I get it,” I say.
But hear me out anyway.
Many Christians typically imagine Jesus is only relevant after they die.
This is a lie.
Jesus is relevant all the time—temporarily as well as after your death.
Because Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection radically changed possibilities for you.
Too many Christians miss this.
Because Jesus makes temporary life better, too.
Which Way to Go?
Okay ask yourself, does Jesus have anything to do with my relationships at work? At home? My relationship with me?
The answers are yes, yes, and yes.
Here’s another important question to answer, when does eternal life begin?
When you’re dead?
Or does it begin when you receive God’s gift of Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit?
- How do you see it?
- Does it matter?
- Of course it does.
Because you suspect life can be better than what you’re experiencing, right?
In Good Friday and Easter Jesus won for everyone an opportunity for new life, new life that matters today as well as forever.
So, how are you dealing with this new life opportunity?
You may be doing nothing.
You may be doing all you think you can do.
Still, you feel like you aren’t tapping into everything your new life in Christ has to offer.
Dare to Move Forward
What does it take to begin living this new, this restored relationship with God?
As one preacher asks, “What do you have to do to make your life better and make you better at life?”
If you’re suffering spiritually, how do you get relief from your numbness and apply the balm that soothes both the ache and emptiness?
When you are a split-second away from giving up and giving in what would make you take one more step?
A fulfilled promise?
There is one.
This fulfilled promise is alive in our mind and is inscribed on our heart.
All you wish for is satisfied by this fulfilled promise.
This fulfilled promise is the absolute premier event in human history.
Nothing in our history is greater.
You can ignore the promise but this won’t make your life better, in fact, it makes your life worse.
- You’re not at peace.
- You’re irritable.
- You’re short tempered.
- You’re often hard to live with.
Because you’ve decided to ignore or disregard the fulfilled promise.
Or you’ve misunderstood what the promise offers.
Thus, you’re unhappy because you realize you’re not experiencing life in all its fullness, which Jesus said is his offer for you.
Improve You Life
Your goal of improving your life isn’t reached.
Why? Why are you missing out on this new life choice?
Maybe because you’re trying to control your life.
You’re sincere, a good person, someone others like, but you’re spinning your wheels and going nowhere… your life isn’t working.
Maybe it isn’t working because you’re stuck in religion.
You do good stuff… things you were taught in Sunday school.
- You rarely miss church.
- You volunteer when asked.
- You pray.
- You read your Bible a few days every week.
Nonetheless, your religious activities aren’t delivering any lasting comfort or long term improvement.
Is there anything else you can try that you haven’t tried?
I wrote a book Letting God Love You: Accepting Life in All its Fullness that argues for eternal life beginning immediately after we receive God’s gift of salvation, redemption, restoration.
The controlling verse is “… I came so that everyone would have life, and have it in its fullest. (abundantly). John 10:10b. To me that means eternity starts the moment we receive new life in Christ.
It’s about Relationship Christianity not Religious Christianity.
It’s about falling in love with Jesus and letting him love you.
Choice and cooperation are keys to a better today and tomorrow.
Saying yes to Jesus taking over your life is a choice.
And cooperation with the Holy Spirit sets your new life in Christ in motion.
Who says besides me?
- The Apostle Peter says so.
- The Apostle John says so.
- The Apostle Matthew says so.
- James the brother of Jesus says so.
These were eyewitnesses to Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
They tell of their transformation from going nowhere in life to how to win in life and experience life in all its fullness.
Carefully consider their testimonies and transformation, their struggles and their solution to struggle.
Your objections are answered in Jesus.
Opportunities are available for you to unwrap.
When you receive God’s gift of Jesus you’ll get:
- Peace of mind and soul,
- Joy from gratitude and thanks,
- Well-being and Contentment.
This all comes as a part of God’s gift to you.
What Do You Have to Lose?
I’m suggesting it’s safe to try.
Try it for three consecutive days to see if it works for you.
Write down what you experience in your journal.
When it works you’ll be eager to keep applying it.
I think this remedy is exactly what is going to happen for you.
It’s time to make a decision because you have a choice to make:
- Keep doing what you’ve been doing.
- Do nothing at all.
You know where this leads. Is this where you want to go?
If not take a new action and get a new (better) result.
Finally, get the Easter gift that the Lord God intends for you.
Stop waiting to die and start living life in all its fullness—now.
