Jesus came into the world 2000 years ago and turned everything upside down. The powerful became powerless, the hungry were fed, the sick were made well, and death was conquered. People ask, “If God exists, why does bad things happen?” Well, I don’t know for sure, but what I do know is that this is not where God reigns. God reigns in our eternal life. Evil exists here on earth ever since we were given free will to make our own decisions.
We live in a time of so much hatred, disrespect for authority, and uncertainty. I don’t want to be afraid, but it is so hard not to be these days. God says, “Do not be afraid” over 200 times in the Bible. How can we not be afraid in a world that is so chaotic and fearful? I have learned that because of Jesus, I don’t have to be afraid! My life is safe and secure! I will never die because of my life in Christ! This is Good News!
God calls each of us into this life with Christ! Did you know that God created you just so God could have a relationship with you? God sent his only son into the world, not to condemn you, but to save you! (John 3:17). That means God wants you to be with Him – to get to know Him, and be there for you! Not to leave you or forsake you!
Join me on this journey as we get to know Jesus. This journey has the potential to change your life!
