Looking for Answers?
Are You Asking the Right Questions?
The stock market has tanked. You’ve lost your retirement, your job, perhaps your home. Or maybe you are experiencing a different personal tragedy. All you can ask is Why?
Perhaps the question to be asked is Why Not?
What? You say. Are you Nuts? How can this possibly help me during this time? My darkest hour, the worst time in my life?
The answer is easier than you think. Jesus Christ has drawn near to you, stretched out an open hand and asked you to take it and trust him. Jesus says:
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 15:28
Jesus cares about you, how you feel, and the condition of your heart, mind, and especially, your soul. He desires to be part of your life and wants to bless you in many different ways. Jesus has ALL of the answers to life's questions and will always be there no matter what the circumstances may be:
"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you (Jesus) are with me..."Psalm 23:4
Why Not?Jesus Is Everything. The Holy Son of God came to Earth not to condemn us for our sins, but to save us from them. Through belief in Him the stain of sin is washed from us and we are set right with God. What does one have to do to be saved?
Nothing.Jesus Christ has already done all that is necessary for anyone and everyone to have eternal life. In the Bible a Jailer asks Paul and Silas, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved -- you and your household." That's it. Not, "believe and do more", just believe. That is why Christ is our Cornerstone. Through Him we are saved, and we can be confident that we have a place in heaven waiting for us, which He has prepared.
