The irony of life

DevotionsThe irony of life

Text: Acts 3:1. Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. 2. And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

 

Life is full of mysteries that are most times beyond human understanding.

Behind most physical expression of beauty and smile, are pain and tears.

After the fall of man in the garden, life became a place of tears and pain.

It touched God how man whom He had created in His own image would yet suffer pain and God sent Jesus Christ His only son who took all the shame and pain of man with His blood, reconciling man back to God. John 3:16

The peace Christ gives is more than the wealth and treasures of the world.

Only Jesus Christ can fill that vacuum in your heart.

 

Many people appear so beautiful on the outside but dying with one affliction on the inside.

On the outside are people prospering but their soul is dying.

The Bible tells us in Luke 16:19-31 of the story of the rich man who prospered while on earth, and on the other hand was a poor righteous beggar Lazarus who had nothing. After they both died, they inherited the outcome of the choice of life they had made while on earth. Beloved, I am not against good life and wealth, for I know that these things come from the Lord, but we shouldn’t be trapped in the love of these things at the expense of our soul.

Again from the story of our Bible text was a lame man who was at the place called beautiful begging for alms, it might amaze you at the irony of his situation, he was beautifully located at the beautiful gate, but his life wasn’t beautiful.  Acts 3:1-9.

Beloved, only Jesus Christ can make your life beautiful.

Only Jesus can clean your sin and give you a beautiful life.

Living on stolen possession might seem beautiful on the outside, but on the inside, you’re dying, it’s a dead end my friend.

Fornication might seem flesh pleasing and satisfying but on the inside, you’re headed to the path of destruction.

Jesus wants to show you today what it means to live a beautiful life.

Jesus living in you, gives you a hope for tomorrow.

Build on Jesus Christ, He is the solid foundation for your faith and future. 1 Corinthians 3:11

 

Would you want to repent and surrender your life to Jesus Christ today?

Say these prayers;

Lord  Jesus.

Thank you for your death on the cross and resurrection to set me free.

Today I acknowledge you as the Lord and Savior of my life.

Forgive all my sinful ways and make me what you want me to be.

Thank you for saving me.

Amen.

 

Shalom.
