All of us are looking for something.
A great deal.
To be cared for.
A new start.
Did you know all of those can be found at One Source?
A great deal: you didn’t have to pay the price to be reunited with God, whether you ever knew it needed to be paid or not. We all know we do things we shouldn’t, don’t do things we should, from a very young age. This stains our souls with a soil that can only be washed away with blood. Jesus willingly let Himself be held on that cross because He knew that cost could only be paid for, once and for all, by God. So He, as the Son of God, became the required lamb to be offered up to wash those stains, the slate clean. For us. You didn’t have to pay the cost. You just need to accept He has done so for you. A pretty awesome bargain when you realize eternity in heaven is part of the package being offered.
Companionship: you are never alone when you walk with God. He is always with you. Talking with, listening to you. He values your company enough to die to make sure you understood just how much.
Love: love that never ends. Wants the best for you, all the time. Love that is patient, kind, endures all things. Love that is not just spoken but demonstrated, lived out. Love that isn’t just warm fuzzy feelings, but in for the long haul, no matter what.
Respect: God decided to set things up, before His first people were made in the garden, so we could make our own choices. He respects us enough to not make us robots who couldn’t say no but had to follow all commands. Instead, He equipped us with the ability to say yes or no, and respects our right to do so, honoring the decisions even if He doesn’t like them.
Hope: God gives us a future. Knowing we are not alone, we are loved and valued by God gives us hope on the days when we feel everything is unraveling. Better things are to come, hope whispers into our soul.
To be cared for: Never being alone, having God with us all the time gives us the knowledge that Gods love is also practical. He knows you need food, a roof over your head, clothing. He gives us gifts and talents, and puts people around us to help develop them or provide for us as we need.
A new start: God is able to take what the world sees as not worth investing in, and gives us a new lease on life. The Bible is full of such real life people: Abraham, Sarah, Joseph, Ruth, Rahab, Peter, Matthew, Paul. They all had God give them a new start- one that changes their lives forever and influenced those around them & generations yet to come.
Not all roads lead to heaven.
Only one door opens that path, and Jesus hold the key.
If You seek Him, you will find Him.
Your search will not be in vain if you are seeking Him with all you are.
