That is why it is so sad for those who have heard about this new life in Christ but willing reject him. For when you reject him you are literally rejecting the reason for your existence. I believe this is one of the worst parts of eternal separation with God. For without God, there is only death. But the good news is because of Christ coming to this earth in flesh and delivering us from the scourge of sin, we can celebrate and know that we do not have to live without hope. Even though the world is dark and evil, our God has made a way for us to stand, be confident and know that he has made a way of escape through his son Jesus Christ.
For Christ is the true light of salvation for this dark world. For the light that Jesus gives is knowledge and an awakening. His coming informs us of what God expects from humanity. That he has a standard of living that isn’t impossible to live by. It may seem hard because his way for living contradicts nearly everything that our culture espouses as values. Our culture adores sexual expression but God says seek first the kingdom of heaven and its standard of living that is accordance to his will. Our culture loves power our God says be humble and meek and trust in the Lord with all of your heart. When Jesus comes he shines knowledge on every dark place in life.
Sadly, not everyone chooses to accept this light because they love evil and desire to rebel against God’s standard of living. But that is not you. I pray that you accept God’s correction and his way to life. For when you do you can stand boldly unafraid of the coming terror that our world is destined to go through. You need not fear God’s judgment because your hope is built on the precious blood and life of Jesus Christ. Knowing that he is the reason for the season and that if you put your confidence in him he will never let you down. He will come post haste.
