Keep your eyes on the goodness of God.
We have a spiritual enemy.
The enemy wants to tear down this work.
The enemy does not want you, or people, to come hear the Word.
Believers have spiritual attacks. Unbelievers are ripped off by the enemy but are not attacked, because they are already going in the wrong spiritual direction.
Life has its challenges for believers and unbelievers. Challenges become meaningful as a way to grow for the believer. Remember, bumps are what you climb on and grow through.
Our spiritual journey goes from seeing Jesus as a Savior of the world,
to the Savior of the World, (exclusive)
to my Savior, in this world. (personal)
Most of the world rejects the offer of a personal relationship with God and rejects the love and forgiveness God offers them.
When you reject Jesus as your salvation, you also reject His light; leaving you in this world, with no forgiveness, and with no light.
Light attracts the seekers. It also attracts bugs.
Jesus is always shining no matter how dark it gets.
