Sometimes we treat problems and trials as if we were on a television commercial. We rush around thinking we have to solve everything in 30 seconds. When we can't, we panic. We try every option we can think of to overcome our problems and difficulties. When none work, we reluctantly turn to God as a last resort. How different it is when we love and trust God and live every day in relationship with Him. The beauty of the gospel of Jesus Christ is that we are not just saved from something. We also are saved to something, and that something is an eternity living in fellowship with God. It is what Jesus called “eternal life,” gained through the power of His resurrection from the dead. The Good News Gospel of Christ isn’t something we believed in the past; it is something we believe, present tense. And the Gospel isn’t about something that happened, once upon a time. Instead, the Gospel is about something forever happening in our lives. As the “mustard seed” of our relationship with God takes root, it begins to permeate every area of our lives. Ultimately, God wants us to grow and thrive and become more Christ-like. That’s the quality of life I want every day. My friend, I hope that’s your desire too. I’m sure it is. So rejoice in your relationship with God. This is Luis Palau.
