How's your week been?

How's your week been?

I've been complaining about the heat and that my pool is too warm to go in.

Meanwhile calamities abound around this country and the world while thousands die and millions are displaced from their homes.

Does it bother us? "There's nothing I can do anyways, so let's just enjoy the life we have." Eat, drink, be merry, for tomorrow we die. I can be so callous at times, so caught up in my own issues.

One thing I do see is that we are so ever close to the "tipping point." The point of no return. This is reality not pessimism. Pessimism offers no hope. I have hope. I have hope in Jesus Christ.

You know the story… God sent His only Son to show us who God is and to offer Himself a willing sacrifice for our sins. He died on a cross, was buried and three days later rose from the dead. He lives and reigns in Heaven and continues to beckon mankind to repent, to turn from their sinful lives and turn to Him for forgiveness and restoration and a hope of eternal life now and in the world to come.

People will fail us all the time. Friends come and go and change like the weather. We have no greater friend than in Jesus. No greater one who loves us so incredibly.

"Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends." —John 15:13

There is nothing more important in this world than believing in Him, accepting Him, knowing Him. If you don't know Him He continues to stand at the door of your heart and knock. Will you let Him in?

"Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me." —Revelation 3:20

File under: Jesus remains our only hope.
