It’s popular to say that there is a battle between Good and Evil. Popular to say, but not true. The battle is between Evil and Man. God - Who is good - has already won that battle. This week we conclude our series by seeing the world as it really is - and claiming the victory that Christ has already won.
We've all found ourselves struggling with not feeling fulfilled. It's as if nothing can satisfy us, no matter how hard we try. We strive and achieve but for some reason it never feels like enough. This pattern ultimately leads to anxiety, unrest and absolute exhaustion. We live in an age of over-information, contradiction and media telling us what's supposed to make us happy. So how are we supposed to avoid what will satisfy us temporarily and find a life that's so fulfilling that we "never thirst again?"
Life has struggles. It just does. As soon as we get through one struggle, there seems to be another waiting right over the horizon. Jesus promised that in this world we would have problems, and He’s been keeping His word ever since. He also told us to not lose heart for He has overcome the world. This week we look at how to keep heart in a world that can seem so heartless.
Ok, who isn’t fed up with being fed up? 2020 was rough and 2021 didn’t fare much better. Had enough already? Well, how about we start off 2022 by really focusing on others, the needy, the marginalized? Let’s serve, serve together and be Christ to the world.
