Three Truths

As you go about your day, remind yourself of these three truths:

1) This world is NOT it…there is eternity that awaits us! 2 Cor. 4:18 declares, “While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” Far too many Christians live as if this world is it, but it’s not! Eternity lies before us. Do not believe the lie that your childhood memories, college degrees, good paying job, husband/wife, kids, grandkids, and fancy vacations is it…because this is not it. We must live in light of an unseen world and live our lives with eternity in view.

2) There is a God out there who desperately and relentlessly loves you. He has pursued you in His grace and mercy and for those of you who responded in faith, He has saved your soul! Romans 5:8 states, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Forget Fifty Shades of Grey and all that ridiculous nonsense…THIS is true love! God loved you so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die in your place…to die for your sins…He died for you before you ever accepted Him as Lord and Savior…that is simply amazing. Never lose sight of this precious truth.

3) Always remember that there is mercy, forgiveness, and all the strength you’ll ever need at the Cross of Grace. The tree upon which Jesus died has the power to save you from your past sins, but it also has power to cleanse you from your present sins and grants to you true power to live a life of righteousness. 1 John 1:9 declares, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness.” Cling to the Cross of Christ…go to this mercy tree time and time again to find the hope and grace that you so desperately need.

Wherever you are…whatever you’re doing…remind yourself of these three simple, but powerful truths.

God bless you guys.

  1. Were it not for the truth of your blog, where we can find strength, I would have given up long ago. I have been in pain, sometimes severe enough that I spend the day in bed. Sometimes it is too painful to do anything but sleep and it has been like this for each and every day for the last five years. The truth of the source of our unwavering strength, Jesus Christ, and the knowledge that he loves us “desperately and relentlessly” is proof of his love. In a pain wracked world Christ is the only source of comfort. He has given me, a sinner, mercy, grace and forgiveness without question. The tree is empty but it is the only place in this world where you can find mercy and grace each of us so desperately needs.
