Reporting live from the place you have been your entire life. Look at you. You seem to be working so hard for love. You seem to be acquiring so much wealth these days, yet have an empty feeling. You look happy, but long for something inside. If only that pastor would stop asking for so much money. If only there were more proof Jesus was real, then you would consider believing. You’re on your own living a pretty good life. All you have to do is feed the poor and do good to those around you, and your ticket to heaven in punched. After all, you have been working so hard to complete the “good people” checklist. All is well; maybe.
You are lost and broken. You want to know about this Jesus guy, but you just can’t wrap your mind around it. You go to church one more time and BAM! It hits you. God’s grace is there to receive you. You didn’t have to do anything because he loves you. He just wanted you to believe. Your past mistakes he will take care of and your daily sins he will work through, but you have arrived. God never cared about all of that. He doesn’t even care about your money; he wanted YOU. He chased you down. Wait, nobody told you it was about relationship not religion? Nobody told you God sent his son to die so your covered? You really thought feeding the homeless was all you had to do? Well I have breaking news for you. It’s even more simple than that. You simply need to believe!
I pray you walk away from everything you thought you knew about church, Christ, Christianity, and even Pastors. God wants you to simply believe and to do so today! Please, you do not want to miss out. He’s waiting with arms wide open. Let him teach you and mold you, no matter how old you are. He wants YOU; and that is the breaking news of the gospel plain and simple!
