Look around, whole countries are in trouble. There is a world-wide economic depression and people the whole world over are hurting and seeking answers. Beyond this problem lies a deeper, more sinister problem. Evil abounds, with its pervasive tentacles slowly chocking the spiritual life from countless individuals. People are lost and afraid; hopelessness has become common. There just seems to be no safe direction to follow. Yet, for those of us who have not become "spiritually color-blind" there is a way out. Now would be a good time to look at the picture once again and then read the following verses from Paul's second letter to the Corinthians....
2 Corinthians, Chapter 4
3 Even if our Good News is veiled, it is veiled in those who perish; 4 in whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that the light of the Good News of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should not dawn on them. 5 For we don’t preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake; 6 seeing it is God who said, “Light will shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
Open both your heart and mind to what Jesus can do for you!!! Have faith; it really DOES NOT MATTER whether the economy is bad or good, or you have money or health or friends or possessions. If you are on the road that leads to heaven, you have it all!!!! In a hundred years, all the things that you think are worth something will be unimportant and but a dim memory. IF YOU OPEN YOUR EYES TO THE TRUTH OF WHAT JESUS HAS TAUGHT AND OBEY GOD'S WILL, then you REALLY HAVE SOMETHING INDEED!!! Do not be blinded by the things of this world!!! Get on the right path NOW, before it is TOO LATE!!! Then your life will be a "sign" to others to look to Jesus as well!!! LOOK AT THE SIGN ONE MORE TIME AND KEEP LOOKING!!!!
