ALL THERE IS

The unbelieving, unsaved souls of the earth are compelled to do it all and have it all right now, because for them, there will be no later life. The fear of death holds them captive, leaves them short-sighted, and drives them into a flurry of self-promoting, pampering, and pacifying activities, since for them, this is all there is and the best that life will ever be.

These children are people with physical bodies. So Jesus himself became like them and had the same experiences they have. Jesus did this so that, by dying, he could destroy the one who has the power of death – the devil. Jesus became like these people and died so that he could free them. They were like slaves all their lives because of their fear of death.    Hebrews 2:14-15 (ERV)

What then? If some did not believe, their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, will it? May it never be! Rather, let God be found true, though every man be found a liar, (Romans 3:3-4a NASB) 

The unbelief of an atheist doesn’t nullify GOD in any measure or implication; it only minimizes the atheist’s mind, hardens the atheist’s heart, limits the atheist’s life, and reduces the atheist’s usefulness – and ultimately proves the atheist to be a fool.

The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” (Psalm 14:1a NASB)

PSYCHOLOGY DEFINED

PSYCHOLOGY:  the study of how sin – and the menace, mayhem, and malfunction it produces – is manifested through the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of broken human beings, and how this influences and affects our lives and relationships.

BRINGING DEAD PEOPLE TO LIFE

People turn to any variety of self-improvement strategies – diets, exercise, yoga, meditation, positive thinking, religion – all trying to make big people smaller, weak people stronger, dull people brighter, bad people better, and good people “gooder”…yet only Christianity deals with the principal human predicament – that of bringing dead people to life.

 Although training your body has certain payoffs, godliness benefits all things—holding promise for life here and now and promise for the life that is coming.  1 Timothy 4:8 (VOICE)

And you he has quickened to life also, who were dead in trespass and sin, in which you walked in time past according to the course of this world, and followed the prince that rules in the air – the spirit that now works in the children of unbelief,  Ephesians 2:1-2 (NMB)

When you were dead in your sins, you were not set free from the sinful things of the world. But God forgave your sins and gave you new life through Christ.  Colossians 2:13 (NLV)

 This “realm of death” describes our former state, for we were held in sin’s grasp. But now, we’ve been resurrected out of that “realm of death” never to return, for we are forever alive and forgiven of all our sins!  Colossians 2:13 (TPT)

BE JESUS FREE!

So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.  John 8:36  

Are you free – free from comparing yourself to others, competing against others, and coveting what they have? Are you free – free from guilting and shaming yourself over woulda’s, coulda’s, and shoulda’s? Are you free – free from disappointments, failures, and unmet expectations? Are you free – free from prejudice, fear, and hate toward those who are different from you and disagree with you? Are you free – free to be you and becoming the best you that you can be? Are you free?

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.  Galatians 5:1

No one can sidestep JESUS forever, one day everybody has to deal with Him, and we each get to decide when and how. It can be quick and easy or long and hard – you choose.

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30
