I am hearing that claim a lot lately…. the new by-word being thrown around.
At our local grocery store the young man at the check out said…”try these caramel and sea salt donuts that are on sale this week…so good it will change your life!” OK….gave into temptation. I ate 6 of the small donuts on the way home and was sick within the hour. Duh…that’s not the kind of change I want in my life. (Don’t be too hard on me..you all have probably done something similar!)
The spokesman on an ad on TV speaking about a new device to replace an impending knee surgery said, “It will change your life.” Ads about back surgeries, No No, Yes Yes hair removal devices, wonder creams on every page of a magazine, pills to make you feel better and live longer….all speak of changing your life.
Yes, these things may change some situations in your life for the better, but what is it? Are we all so frantic to change our lives in some way that we are searching for external fixes?
GOOD NEWS FLASH….JEUS IS THE ANSWER!
Jesus said in John 10:10 “I have come that you may have life to the fullest extent.”
Since time began, God, His Son Jesus, and The Holy Spirit have been changing lives from the inside out….changing lives from eternal damnation to eternal life, from despair to hope.
True…we are constantly trying to better ourselves as we journey through this earthly life, but remember where your lasting treasures lie.
Matthew 6:19-20 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven , where moth and rust do not destroy and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is there your heart will be also.”
With the pressing media promising quick fixes for a changed life…remember to listen to the life changer Himself for your daily needs.
LIFE IS HARD…BUT GOD IS GOOD AND HE CARES ABOUT EACH ONE OF US!
