Jesus Christ lives! Merry Christmas!!
Jesus did not come for us to stay the same. He came to make change possible. He did not come to make bad people good. He came to make dead people alive. He did not come to make you religious. He came to have an intimate relationship with you. He didn’t come to reform you. He came to transform you.
Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10 (ESV)
Do you have abundant life? Seriously. Be honest.
I am not asking if you go to church, are religious, or do good things. Do you have abundant life? Is your soul overflowing with the love of Jesus and is it impacting every area of your life? Do you have the joy of the Lord as your strength? Does your husband, wife, or best friends see Jesus in you? If you were the only picture of Jesus that anyone could see, what impression of Jesus would they have?
The reason Jesus came was to save us, transform us, and infuse His life into ours. It’s all about that grace. It’s about the greatest exchange ever. He takes our sin and puts His righteousness on us. He makes it possible for us to know Him, enjoy Him, enjoy life in Him, and communicate that “Joy to the World.”
Get to know him better. Talk to him. Read his word. Listen to what he says. Confess your sins, repent of them, believe Him for victory and joy in your life today. Remember that “we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us.”
