I have seen the catch phrase: ‘Life is a gift, take care of it’ I thought what a better way, than to trust our lives to the Giver of life.
John 10 v 10 says: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full’.
A song by General John Gowans of the Salvation Army goes like this;
We wonder why Christ came into the world and let men hurt Him so;
We wonder why Christ should have too die, does anybody know?
We wonder why, we wonder why?
The Son of God as man came down, what does this signify?
He came to give us life in all its fullness; He cam to make the blind to see
He came to banish death and doubt and darkness; He came to set His people free.
He liberating love imparted, He taught men once again to smile
He came to bind the broken hearted; and God and man to reconcile.
We live in a very materialistic world that only brings temporary happiness and satisfaction. We need those things to survive but the things that bring lasting peace and happiness are relationships with each other and with God, He promises peace and fulfillment through the good times and the bad.
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be”. Matthew 6 vs 19 to 21
God bless you all this week.
