Got problems? Confused by life's twists and turns? Hurt by someone or something and trying to figure out why or how to forgive? Trying to understand WHY life is just so very hard and there seems to be no way out and no where to go?
God knew that this would happen, before the creation of the earth. He knew we would be tormented by confusion, doubt, fear, hurt, and general problems of life.
In fact, he wrote scripture to help us realize that we will NEVER understand all that goes on in life, good OR bad. That is why He told us to not lean on our own understanding but trust Him instead. He is able to see the hearts of all people, He is outside of time, He knows the impact of satan and evil in our lives.
He does not promise an easy life; quite the opposite. Jesus said we would have problems in this world. However, we have a mighty God who loves us deeply who wants to lead and guide us through the uncertainties of this world. This life is not meant to be easy; BUT it is meant to be blessed and abundant and full of joy and peace in spite of all the chaos around us.
So, what about you? Are you leaning on God's or your own understanding?
The first thing Jesus said to His disciples was "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." This same charge has been given to us. We are to be made into fishers of men so others can be made into fishers of men. This is the purpose behind the Great Commission. We do this by living the Great Commandments. The Great Commandments are:
- Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength
- Love your neighbor as yourself.
Jesus Himself said all the law and prophets rest on these two commandments.
Come visit us and learn first hand what we are about. We look forward to meeting you!
