The real thing

July 27, 2009

“A thief is only there to
steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.
John 10:6 The Message

My children love real stories; of course they love snuggling up with a good book too but their favourite way to end a day is to cuddle up with Daddy and have him tell stories of when he was ‘a little boy’ (he has a few!!); I’m so looking forward to him returning and having weeks of stories from his adventures in Africa.

We seem to be living in a counterfeit culture where we are fooled into buying imitation ‘life’ from a dodgy sales man on the street.

We’re desperate to look like someone else, do someone else’s job, wear someone else’s clothes and live someone else’s life.

Soap operas and ‘reality TV’ steal prime time air time on our TV sets; real life people watching ‘real life’ shows but still left questioning who they really are.

The world are crying out for an answer: what is REAL?

The unseen
The Alpha and the Omega
Prince of Peace
Lord of Lords
King of Kings
Great High Priest

JESUS – HE is the REAL thing!

Shout it in the street, tell your friends, teach it to your children, post it on your facebook status; Jesus is the REAL thing.

TV may fill your time, games consoles may ‘keep your kids quiet’, going on a night out may fill fulfil that ‘gap’ for a moment but it will never feel ‘real’!

The bible says that the Word of God (The Bible) is LIVING and ACTIVE – it’s not just a dead book that boring people read, it’s not just a good idea for a gift at Christenings but it’s the REAL THING. It’s God breathed, it’s powerful and it’s a mirror for YOUR LIFE.

Can you imagine living a life BETTER than you have ever dreamed of? This is why Jesus died and rose again for YOU.

Choose life
Choose Jesus
Choose the REAL THING.
