Jesus calls us to be a light to our community. However, we tend to think that because Jesus is sending us, we will not have struggles. We will all face struggles, even when following the will of God.
As Christians we are “sent” to our community on behalf of Christ. Each follower of Jesus is uniquely gifted and plays an integral role.
As followers of Jesus the most important thing we can pass on to our children is a life devoted to Christ. Our homes will influence our families more than anything else.
God is able to do amazing things in our lives even when the problems are beyond our human ability. When we find ourselves overwhelmed, there are “first steps” we can take.
Growing in faith often comes with great resistance. The goal of Christian faith is becoming like Jesus. We didn’t become “unlike Jesus” overnight, and we don’t become “like Jesus” instantly either. It is a lifetime of change.
To make a fresh start we need to know where to turn for answers, and who to turn to for help. For Christians that place is the Bible, and our help comes from Jesus.
