The really good news is, You Don’t Have to Live Like This!
Yes, Jesus loves you just the way you are, unconditionally. But He also loves you too much to let you stay in the condition in which He finds you! He wants you to experience being truly Fully Alive physically, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually.
** My new book The Christian’s Journey Through Grief is to be released next week, May 7, 2019, and it’s available for preorder now. Today I’m sharing the Introduction to my new book. I hope you enjoy!
“Death, you may think you have won. Yes, the wounds you have inflicted are deep. And we will mourn as we nurse those wounds. But in truth you have lost again! While to human eyes you may seem to have won this battle, in reality you have already lost the war. And every life you take—temporarily—is but another nail in your own coffin. Death, you will be destroyed! And Al Tanksley, along with me and all the rest of us who trust in Jesus, will live forever.
Then where, O death, will be your sting? Where, O grave, will be your victory?”
Perhaps you are celebrating Christmas with many friends and family, with food, presents, gifts, and perhaps football. Or perhaps you’re alone, and the holiday season only seems to add to your pain. Perhaps you’ve lost someone close to you, or your memories around Christmas make it difficult to feel joy.
As wonderful as it is to celebrate with others if that’s possible, Christmas is about the birth of a Baby.
