Christ is the Cure...

Life is a maybe.
Death is for sure.
Sin is the cause.
Christ is the cure.

Excuse my poor grammar. But ain't that the truth?

I found this saying written on a t-shirt at the Bread Of Life bookstore. Took a picture and commited it to memory. I find that this is a good slap in the face quote. Do you ever find those? I do. A lot.

Life is a maybe.

Think about it. Did the people that died on 9/11 wake up that day and say, "Oh I bet we will be attacked by terrorists today." OF COURSE NOT! But the reality is that life is a maybe. Everyday we wake up with the chance of dying. We have to decide where we want to spend eternity. I surely don't want to spend it in Hell, and I don't think any person in their right mind does.

Just think of this past summer, Ohioans, July 21-24. This week was hot. I mean unbearable, seek out air-conditioning, I'm-a-lady-but-I'm-sweating-profusely HOT! So, imagine that, but 100x hotter. There's Hell for ya. Not to mention the monsters and stuff, but hey, we have a choice. I want to go to Heaven. God wants me to go to Heaven.

Christianity is not a religion. It is a RELATIONSHIP, with the one and only living God.

"Jesus answered, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through me.'"
-John 14:6

And that's all there is to it. So get that relationship with God. Read your bible, go to church and worship Him, build that relatonship. In the end, I'm 100% positive it will be worth it.

Death is for sure.

FOR SURE. I heard a statistic the other day that said 1/1 people die in their lifetime. It seemed silly at first because we don't really think that way. We don't think about dying tomorrow because we are the kind of society that lives for today. And I guess that is okay if you KNOW you are going to Heaven, but not so much if you don't know for sure.

Guys we can't live for today. We have to accept that we don't know what's going to come tomorrow. We have to be prepared. Death is for sure.

"Altogether, Methuselah lived a total of 969 years, and then he DIED."
-Genesis 5:27

See, even though Methuselah lived for 969 years (! wowza!) HE DIED! Everyone dies, so figure out if you want to spend eternity in Hell or Heaven. I'm a blunt person, sorry.

Sin is the cause.

Isn't it so easy to just say whatever to life with Jesus and let sin overtake us? I struggle with this as do most of you probably. But, God forgives. Thank God God forgives. Can I get an Amen! *insert everyone reading my blog shouting, "Amen!". Haha. Sorry. Sin has the power to overtake your life in an instant and change it forever.

So, here's my analogy for the day: Rolling stops, a.k.a. California Rolls. Yeah, you do it. You know you do. We all do at some point whether it's because we're in a hurry, or just hate stopping completely, or another rediculous excuse. Anywho, the point is that rolling stops become a habit. They are against the law. It seems like just a little teeny infraction, right? Well hey guess what? It will lead to you just running stop signs, taking lives, and getting tickets.

Sin works the same way. We do "little" sins (which God says sins are all the same, hence the quotes) and think it's okay. These little sins lead to bigger sins, a suckish relationship with God, and a bad lifestyle. Everytime we sin we get a little further away from God in our walk with Him. Eventually you end up in a different world, where abortion, premarital sex, and being drunk is "okay".

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
-Romans 3:23

I'm not going to say sin is okay. But we ALL sin even if you don't realize it. That's why God sent Jesus to die on the cross for us.

Christ is the cure.

 Hallelujah, Amen, Holy Goodness yay. Right??!!! There's a cure! YAY!!! *Cue all of the people reading my blog jumping up and down in praise! Invite Jesus into your heart to STAY! It's a relationship, you will be persecuted. But it's soooooo worth it! To spend eternity in HEaven is like a gianormous party (catching on to my bad grammar yet? :)). So get there or be square!

Life is a maybe. Too bad world, we've got us some Jesus.
Death is for sure. Too bad Satan, we have a choice!

Sin is the cause. We've got a Savior who loves us and died for our dirty, rotten sins!

CHRIST IS THE CURE! Enough said.
