Sometimes you just need a pep talk.
Times are hard. The Enemy is having a hey-day with the culture and sometimes, if we're not careful, we may think that he's winning the battle.
Life, apart from Christ, is hopeless and empty.
However, many of you reading this are not apart from Christ. You have surrendered to Him. You received His free gift of salvation. You were changed in a moment. Transformed from the inside out. You were made victorious. . .not of your own power, but because of what He has done.
You have hope.
You have life.
Not because you "prayed a prayer" or were baptized, but because of what Christ did on the cross and through His subsequent resurrection. As I stated Sunday morning. . . "He did all the heavy lifting. He did all the work."
What did you do?
What must you do?
Repent, believe and surrender. (Luke 13:5 & Romans 10:9-13)
If you have done this, then you are a child of God.
So, maybe your week has been difficult. You've been challenged. Maybe you would rather have stayed in bed.
You need a pep talk.
While Kid President isn't necessarily speaking the Gospel here, there is truth in what he says.
Those of us who are children of God. . .are "gooder than that." We're on the same team, right?
It's time to do something.
The "road less traveled" (i.e. the narrow road) may not be the easy way. . .but it's right.
So, be encouraged.
Do the hard things.
We have work yet to do, but the hard stuff has already been done (by Christ.) Don't give up.
