Lord, to whom shall we go?
You have the words of eternal life.
~ John 6:68 ~
Nor is there salvation in any other,
for there is no other name under heaven
given among men by which we must be saved
~ Acts 4:12 ~
Bing Crosby sang a song in White Christmas called, “Count My Blessings.” Hearing and watching the unrest displayed these past few days made me wonder how truly thankful I am for the blessings in my life.
What is apparent is that the unrest, chaos, and misery that abounds in the world reflects the discontent in the human heart. I see only one answer to the turmoil and unrest—Jesus Christ; but not everyone will agree with me.
To many in this pluralistic and post-Christian world, this truth is anathema, but the truth remains, Jesus Christ is the only One who has “the words of eternal life” and is, therefore, the hope of the world. Salvation comes only through Him (Acts 4:12).
I ask you, “To whom or what shall we go to, in order to obtain the peace that man’s heart is clamoring for?” In a world that is going amok we should share the hope we have in Jesus, regardless of the cost (1 Peter 3:14-16).
Dear Father, thank You for giving Jesus to redeem us; He not only has “the words of eternal life,” but only He can rescue us. Help us to be a true and loving friend to all so we can share the hope and future we have. We praise, glorify, and honor You, for You came to us when we were desolate and without consolation, You opened our eyes and we saw Truth—Your Son, Jesus. In His name, amen.
