The Word …

The Life of

The Gospel

There is no question about it. We all want a generous portion of the good things of this life. Of course we are most concerned about material things. We can, however, also add good health because without good health we cannot fully enjoy the material goodies of this life. We also strive to gain the respect, even the admiration of others. It feels good when we have excelled in a certain field and we are admired because of it. Unfortunately, most of us leave out one key element in our quest for the better life - Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God. You see, you cannot ignore Jesus Christ and ultimately expect a good life. Jesus said, “Apart from Me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). This includes improving the quality of your life. Did you catch what I said? I mentioned the quality of your life. Without Christ you cannot really improve the quality of life. You might increase the quality of things in your life. You might gain great wealth and you might even gain the admiration of many men and women. But the quality of your life may not change at all. In fact you may still experience a great lack of inner peace and contentment. This is why Christ came into the world. He said, “I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). He came into the world in order to change the quality of life experienced by people like you and me. He came to give you an abundance of love, joy, peace and contentment. There is nothing worse than sadness in the midst of plenty. But sadness will be there if you ignore Jesus Christ. Isn’t it time for you to turn to Him and seek the abundance of life that comes thru Him?
