We all want life....a beautiful, healthy, happy, content life!
But the truth is, there is no life apart from Christ! Without Him, you are living a spiritually dead life. You can have no real joy, happiness, peace, contenment, purpose or fulfillment to your life!
It sounds harsh, but it is so true.
Without Christ, there is no truth, either!
Pilate saith unto Him, ''What is truth''?
When Jesus is not your Saviour and Lord, you have no truth! Because He IS Truth!
There is no truth apart from Jesus Christ, and we need to know Him.
To know Him, we have to realize our depraved sin nature, and go to the Lord humbly and in total repentance of our sin.
Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; Thou shalt make me full of joy with Thy countenance.
JOY, PEACE, CONTENMENT, FULFILLMENT, PURPOSE, TRUTH, BEAUTY are all found through a relationship with Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour!
To my brothers and sisters in Christ: Are you finding your fulfillment in Jesus? Are you joyful, content, willing to serve Him? Are you cultivating your relationship with the Lord? Are you serving Him to your utmost- or just hoping He will accept your meager acts of service? Are you glorifying Him through the way you live each day? Even down to the way we carry ourselves, the way we talk, the way we take care of our bodies....all this reflects our relationship with our Saviour.
I want to encourage you if you have become discouraged, that through Christ we CAN have victory over the flesh! I can't wait to share more of my thoughts with you throughout the coming months.
May you be blessed today as you strive to serve the Lord MORE!
Love from Miss Marjoram
