Christ has so much to offer.
- A heart made clean by the Grace of God
- A life made better because of contentment found in Christ
So many people are lost and undone in a pleasure mad, drug crazed, high pressure society where everything is acceptable. Drugs, sex, divorce, even sin in moderation fills the mindsets of many.
Example of moderate sin? Take a young man who starts drinking at the age of 14. Then at 20 his consumption increases to smother the stress of life. Then his income decreases and his alcohol consumption increases. At 35 he begins and affair and loses his wife. Consumption increases more. At 40 he loses his job and on and on. At the end its him and his stress relief from alcohol. Moderation of sin led to major problems. Today that man lives on skid row and is homeless.
What a gradual deception that sin can produce! So confusing in relation to the ways of God. And the bad thing about this root of confusion is, its spreading like the plague in today’s society. The Devil loves it!
Only Christ can offer man what is truly needed. Only Christ can fulfill longing needs of the human soul in ways the world can never offer. The false contentment of sexual affairs and wild flings wear off at the end of the day. The temporal contentment of money and satisfaction from accumulation of wealth wears off. Life’s temporal achievements satisfy for a minute, “Then what?” What profiteth a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul? Nothing!
Satisfaction and contentment from Christ can be found and experienced.
Christ and the constant presence of His Spirit have so much to offer. There is no other way that offers such a great blessing. There is no true life of contentment outside of Christ
- A heart made clean by the Grace of God produces blessing.
- A life made better because of contentment found in Christ produces blessing.
Christianity is a better life. Christ makes it better. Christ is a burden bearer. Christ is a problem solver. Get rid of worry and anxiety. Goodbye depression. Jesus has something I don’t have.
