Topic: You Have No Future Without Christ [12/12/2016]
To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the HOPE OF GLORY. Colossians 1:27. Read: Mk 8:36-37
A life without Jesus is a life without hope of the future. When a life lacks hope, discouragement will set in and when this happens, life becomes worthless and meaningless to such a person. Hope is the anchor of the soul and only in Christ alone can you find such hope. Only in Christ can you find satisfaction of the soul. In the Kingdom of God, every soul without Christ is considered as lost. Many consider the future only to be their tomorrow, no. In God's Kingdom, your future is more than your tomorrow. Your future is your Eternity. A life after now. A life after tomorrow.
Jesus said, "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Mark 8:36-37. He went further to say in John 14:6, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me". Your future (whether in this life or in the life to come) depends on Jesus Christ. No matter who you are what you've achieved now, without Jesus in those achievements, your future is not certain. Don't forget, you are living a borrowed life and one day, the owner of the life will require it from you.
* A life without Jesus (though might be prospering now) has no root to survive the test of time. Life is sore without Jesus.
