I would like to think I’ve learned a lot in my lifetime but some times I really doubt it! However, there are two things I do know for sure. I’m going to stumble. And, I’m absolute toast without Jesus.
In spite of my best intentions, I still mess up and I mess up a whole lot more than I want to. (Just ask Lindy :)) The fact is, on this earth, I will always be a human being living in a broken world but, I don’t have to live life that way. In the midst of all the craziness, there remains one constant source of clarity, direction, change, fulfillment, and protection. His name is Jesus. And when I continually draw closer to Him, loving Him first and more, and choosing to follow Him every day, I mess up less and live life more.
I don’t believe there’s ever been a time in the history of our nation where God’s timeless principles and truth have been under such an assault. More than ever, we need Jesus. I invite you to prioritize every Sunday in the month of August and come to church. We will be learning how to draw closer to Jesus and will also be participating in 21 days of fervent prayer.
And here’s a third thing I’ve learned. Draw closer to Jesus and you will never be the same.
