“God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel to repentance and forgive their sins.”
This is the season to remember that we are in need of a savior. We can’t do it alone.
Yesterday someone asked me about my faith journey and how I got to this point. There are two answers. The long version and the short version, but in both stories, I will never leave out the small detail that my life was a mess and I needed help. Things were tough at home, and I needed help. I was depressed, and I needed help.
We live in a society where it almost seems weak to ask for help. We all have the “I’ve got it handled” attitude, and it comes to a point where we all need to admit it to ourselves. We don’t have it handled, and that’s okay because we have someone who wants to take care of it for us.
13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate, and broad is the road that leads to destruction; many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
I hope we are a generation of believers that find the narrow road. I hope we find Jesus, and we never let go. I hope we remember what this season is truly about. I hope we honor Him with our lives story.
Jesus, we love you. Thank you for saving us. Thank you for saving us from ourselves. Thank you for saving us from the world. We understand the road is narrow, but we try our hardest every day to stick to our ways. We honor you with our lives, with our minds, with our souls, and with our spirits. We remember why we celebrate this season. We celebrate your life and the lessons you left with it. It is in your holy name that we pray, AMEN!
