The Promise Of Eternal Life

Sometimes we forget that this life is not all that there is. God has promised us eternal life through faith in His Son, Jesus. But we get distracted from that promise by the things of this world and we get pulled away from Jesus. This is what John wrote:

As for you, see that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.25 And this is what he promised us—eternal life. – 1 John 2:24-25 (NIV)

If you are a follower of Jesus, you are going to Heaven. Say that real quick – “I am going to Heaven.” That’s not a wish upon a star or from a genie or a cricket. That’s not a dream or a fantasy. That’s a rock-solid promise from God. He’s not going to change the game on you mid-stream. So faithfully remain in Him. Don’t wander off. You don’t want to miss this…

The Crushed Spirit

In Proverbs 18, Solomon wrote about the human spirit. He said:

The human spirit can endure in sickness,
    but a crushed spirit who can bear? – Proverbs 18:14 (NIV)

Solomon’s father, David, wrote:

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
    and saves those who are crushed in spirit. – Psalm 34:18 (NIV)

Have you ever felt like your spirit was crushed? Have you ever felt like the weight was too great to bear? Solomon was correct. We can endure physical illnesses, but when our spirits are crushed, it is too much to bear. On our own, when our spirits are crushed under the weight of life’s pressures, we find it difficult to go on. But God, in His great love for us, draws near to the brokenhearted. He saves us when our spirits are crushed. If you are feeling brokenhearted and crushed in spirit, turn to Jesus today. He will not reject or despise you. He will come near to you and help you and save you. If life’s pressures are too much to bear, you don’t have to bear them alone. Turn to God, for He has promised to be with you.
