God’s redemption will result in cosmic transformation, so our inner joy is based on God’s redemption of us.
Many of us love to cheer for the underdog, but not many of us want to be the underdog. How do we get through those times when the odds are stacked against us?
When times are tough, it is difficult for us to have hope. We want things to get better, but there is nothing in our circumstances to indicate that they will. Yet we hear this story from long ago of a humble king who came to a dark and desperate world. Why would that make any difference in our lives two millennia later on the other side of the world? He came to give us hope.
Jesus cleanses, enlivens and nourishes our soul so that his life flows through us.
Jesus heals our relationships with his love
Obstacles along the way will not deter you when your desired destination is worth more to you than the pain.
In the life we have with Jesus, we have everything we need as we safely live with him forever.
Jesus will carry us safely through whatever challenge we face in life, even death.
Focusing on Jesus will help us to start, and continue the race with perseverance.
With all the pressures of starting a new school year & new activities in September, it is easy for us to get overwhelmed and off-track. Thankfully, Jesus has given us the gift of eternal life with him. As we train ourselves in living eternal life with Jesus, we are able to better live out our eternal life in the stresses of everyday life in this world. (Based on 1 Cor. 9:19-27.)
