Maybe the world was always so messed up. I’m not exactly sure. When I was a kid, it seemed pretty good. My parents fed me, clothed me, lavished me with toys, gave me a safe and loving home. I was sure everyone lived like this.
Until I became an adult. The protection of my parents concealing the harshness of this world was gone. I live in a safe and loving home now with a husband who feeds and clothes me now. But I now know, not everyone lives like this. Many children, and adults alike, live in broken homes. Some don’t live in homes at all.
The pink clouds of childhood is gone. The news scream of how this sin-infiltrated world is falling apart.
However, now I know exactly how much this world needs Jesus.
This world will never be perfect. As long as the devil exists, the world will remain broken. The world needs a Savior. Broken hearts need to be mended from all the hurt. Living in sin will never bring humanity happiness. If money and fame brought happiness, rich and famous people wouldn’t commit suicide, they wouldn’t divorce, and they wouldn’t need therapists. Yet, all people, rich and poor, famous and nonfamous, need One therapist.
The Therapist knows living in sin is not easy. It might seem easy to live however we want is the better option. Yet, it’s a lie the devil hands us on a pretty plate. Living with lies, abuse, jealousy, hate, addictions, fear [insert any sin here], is an easy life?
In Matthew 11:28-130 Jesus says,
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Jesus walked our paths some 2,000 years ago. He felt hunger, pain, sadness, loneliness, rejection just like we do. He felt it all (except sin of course)! He was a human, yet a God, living in this broken world. He saw the injustice. He saw how much people needed a Savior. That is exactly why He died for us.
He knows your hurt. He wants to heal you and give you hope for a future. If you think living in sin is a better option, think again. When life gets tough, who can you turn to?
When life is tough, go to Jesus.
When life is good, thank Jesus.
When life is over, you’ll meet Jesus.
