Do you believe Jesus is coming again?
December 25, 2009
"For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day."
I want to ask you a question that may be a little unusual for Christmas Day. It's an important question: Do you believe that Jesus is coming again?
Now you may say, "I believe in Christmas," or "I've joined a church." But have you really surrendered your life to Christ Jesus the King? Let me tell you why this is so important.
Naturally, today we are mindful of the Christmas story—that Jesus was born a baby and that he lived a sinless life. He died and rose again so that the eternal God could live in our hearts. This is the good news of Jesus Christ!
But our story doesn't end here.
The same Scripture that proclaims Jesus' birth also says he is coming again! Yes, he is! And he will not return under the humble circumstances of his birth, but in tremendous power, glory, and authority! The king is coming!
Are you ready for his return? If Jesus sits on the throne of your life, you can look forward to his return with hopeful anticipation. But if you have not let Jesus sit on the throne of your life, you can repent of your sin right now.
Let this Christmas be the day you settle your eternity with Christ once and for all!
THE SAME SCRIPTURE THAT PROCLAIMS JESUS' BIRTH
ALSO SAYS HE IS COMING 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
