Making your life journey count
March 29, 2010
That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem…
-- Luke 24:13
We've all heard it said that life is a journey. And it's true. But sometimes life's challenges can cause you to lose hope and even to despair.
In the book of Luke, you and I meet two men whose life challenges had caused them to lose hope. These men were Christ followers, but when Jesus died on the cross, they were stunned. And as they walked to Emmaus, their conversation revealed the depth of their pain and disillusion.
You see, their experience did not match their expectation. Their journey with Jesus had come to a sudden end. They expected more from Jesus… and hoped for something more from God.
But something extraordinary happened to those two men on that journey. A man began to walk with them! And as they listened to what he said and watched what he did, they soon realized who that man was… Jesus was alive and their hope was restored!
Now, I want to ask you an important question. How is your life journey going? Is it going well? Or maybe you've had a rough start filled with crushing disappointments.
Well, through God's grace and the power of Jesus' resurrection, this Easter season, you can have a new beginning! Your Savior is alive!
Let him walk with you and he will make your life an incredible journey, one that will count for eternity!
YOUR SAVIOR IS ALIVE!
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
