Guiding Scripture: Mark 8:38 If anyone is ashamed of me, and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels.”
🔴 THE CHOCOLATE EASTER BUNNY
Remember getting Easter baskets? Think about how well-shaped it was with the long ears that you just couldn’t wait to bite off! Or was it the head? Maybe it was the feet? Whichever part it was after the first bite, you immediately discover that it is hollow on the inside!
Is the Christmas holiday proclaimed by Christians to celebrate the Birth of Christ empty? Think about all the gifts, talents, love, grace, mercy, breath, life, health, protection, the blessings that God has gifted you.
- What gift are you willing to give Him?
- Do you even know what He wants? Have you asked Him?
Living a life without Jesus Christ is empty, meaningless, pointless, insignificant, and without purpose!
It does not matter how hard you have worked. How much you have given or your economic status. If you refuse Christ after hearing that God sent him to save you, your life will be empty. God will not force Himself on anyone, and if you desire to forsake Him, he gives you the motive of your heart. We have a choice, and God allows us to choose. We can embrace Him, or we can want Satan! We will undoubtedly spend eternity with only one of them.
Let us Pray: Lord, we shudder at the thought of spending a life without you. As believers, we pray, Lord, that you will have those who do not yet believe to have a change of heart. Thank you, Lord, for waiting patiently for your return to allow everyone to come to you. Please fill us, Lord, with Holy Ghost Power to go out and witness to others of your saving grace. Thank you, Jesus. Amen
