Life is full of worry, doubt, and frustration. But one thing is certain, God. This past Sunday, we started a new series called, CREED. This series is designed around the Apostles Creed. If you missed last Sunday, you can get caught up here.
It doesn’t matter if you turn on the national or local news, look at your Facebook newsfeed or talk with your friends, people are lost, confused and scared. There is hopelessness in people’s eyes and there is only one who can fill that empiness–Jesus Christ.
We find in the Gospel of John, a man named Nicodemus came to Jesus by night and asked, “How can a man be born again?”
Jesus’ answer was profound, yet simple. “No one has ascended into heaven, but he who came down from heaven, the Son of Man, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” In other words, God loved us, no matter how hopeless this earthly life seems, no matter what we’ve done, he loved us so much that he gave us Jesus.
We shouldn’t be putting our hope in earthly things. We shouldn’t put our trust in what’s happening around us, for the Bible says these things are vain and have no worth. God has called us with a holy calling to proclaim his fame among the nations.
Phil. 2:9-16; “9 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, 14 do all things without complaining and disputing, 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast the word of life.”
When we allow Christ to fill our hearts and minds, his light shines in our heart. That light is a beacon, like a lighthouse, for the world to see, and it’s through our good works, that people will glorify God. But it only happens when we believe in Jesus Christ, the son of God.
Let this week be the week where Jesus takes center place in your heart and life. Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
