Anything goes

" I therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, beg you to
lead a life worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all
humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,
making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to the one hope of
your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who
is above all and through all and in all." (Ephesians 4:1-6) NRSV

We live in a world where anything goes. Things we
counted on suddenly change. People break their promises. What we thought was
true turns out to be false. At times it
seems that there's little to hold on to any more. But life doesn't have to be
that way. We have one great choice. The
choice is Jesus. He doesn't change. Jesus never breaks his promises. His words
always prove to be true. You can hold
on to him. You can also hold on to the cross. Jesus died on the cross for one
reason - He loves you. After Jesus died and came back to life, he made a
commitment to you. He promised never to
leave you or forsake you. Jesus has kept his promise and always will. You can bet your life on it. Jesus only asks
for one thing: for you to make the same kind of promise to him. 

Committing yourself to Jesus doesn't mean
you won't have any tough times. But it does mean you'll have some help when you
do. But you can't do it halfway. You've
got to give it your all. And don’t
forget you have a large family here to support you and help you in your walk
with Christ, through Sunday school, Sunday Worship, Youth, small groups,
retreats, and mission trips.
