Is your rebellion keeping you from God?
August 4, 2009
All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation…
--2 Corinthians 5:18
The Scripture says that each of us has sinned and fallen short of the high and holy standard set by God. That means we’re born rebels.
Now, some people show their rebellion by shaking their fist in the face of God and saying, “God, I’m going to live my life my own way!” And while you and I may not have shaken our fists at God, we were born rebels at heart. We all have the propensity to rebel against God. And it’s this sinful nature that separates us from God.
The good news, however, is found in the gospel of Jesus Christ! Jesus died to redeem us and to reconcile us to God. And when we ask him into our lives, he changes our sinful nature and gives us a brand new life.
In fact, if you let him, Jesus will change your life so radically that it’s like being born all over again. Have you experienced this kind of change?
Please don’t allow the temptation to have your own way keep you from God. Right now he is wooing you to himself. Let him love you and make you a new creation.
LET HIM CHANGE YOUR LIFE IN SUCH A RADICAL
WAY THAT IT’S LIKE BEING BORN AGAIN.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
