Life. It happens. 

Life is all over the place. It happens on our watch, and when we aren’t watching. Time and life are going and going and going….like the energizer bunny. 

You may be high on life, low on life. You may be where you want to be or this is the last place you want to be,  widowed or just starting marriage. Maybe you lost relationship with your children in a fight, lost one through miscarriage or never had any, whether by choice or not.

All of our lives look different. Our daily routines are unique to us and our current situation. But, no matter what life looks like, if you live in your dream home, or don’t even have a home that is your own. I have good news. The Bible says, 

For the Son of Man came to seek and save the lost. 

Luke 19:10

At one point you were lost. At one point or even now, you were wandering, without a light on a path. You were at one time or are now in darkness. We all have one thing that binds us as humans no matter how different our daily life looks. We are all bound together as people that fall into 2 categories.
1st category, you know God. And I mean know Him. You have confessed Jesus as Lord and have the assurance of eternity with Him. And now, live your life for Him.

Or 2, you don’t know God. You’ve heard of a Heavenly God and His Son Jesus because you live in America and He is a popular topic. But there is no personal connection between you and Him.

Jesus came to solve that. He came to be the bridge that you walk on to get to the Father. He came, tore the barrier, between mankind and a Holy God and became the way for you to enter into relationship with God. He said this, 

I Am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. 

John 14:6

There aren’t many things in life we know how to control. On a good day, you can control yourself, let alone people and situations. The Holy Spirit recently told me, “Stacie you clean constantly because you feel out of control in life and that is what you see that you can control.” It’s true. I do that.

But, back to the good news, there is one decision that leads to an outcome that you have sure control over. One thing that solely is guided and decided by you and you only.

Here it is: God performed a miraculous act and response to humanity. He came with the solution. A life entered the world. That life was Jesus in the flesh. That life was the light for all mankind and that light came just in time. The darkness could not overcome it!

You and only you can recognize your need for a savior. I can’t reveal that to you, for you. When you hear the news about Jesus, and that He is the savior of the world, the Bible says this about the gospel..

…..it (the gospel) is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes.

Romans 1:16

Just hearing the gospel and believing it, brings salvation to your doorstep. You begin to recognize that you can’t, by your own will and effort to be good, spend eternity in Heaven. 

You’re one decision to confess Jesus as Lord and be filled with the Holy Spirit secures your eternity. You may not be able to secure your bank account or secure a number on the scale when you step on it, but you can secure your eternity through Jesus Christ. You can control that. Accept Him today. He is seeking you out!

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Revelation 3:20
