Are you making a difference through Jesus?

For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
(Romans 5:19 (NIV))

I am sure that everyone has heard someone say, “What can I do? I am only one person.” This verse shows the power that one person can have in someone’s life, for it is through one that all have been made to suffer, and then it is through One that all may come to grace.

One person can make a difference!

Look at what Jesus was able to do for us through his life, death and resurrection. Take a look at what the disciples were able to do after Jesus was resurrected. I am sure that each one of them thought that they could not make a difference, yet, through their faith and work, the Truth has been spread for almost 2000 years.

We have been given an amazing gift of grace through Jesus. Each of us, although only one, can make a difference in the lives of everyone that we touch.

Are you in need of healing?

He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
(Psalms 147:3 (NIV))

Have you ever realized that this passage does not speak of physical wounds that are bound up? The wounds are those of the brokenhearted! In other words, Jesus comforts the brokenhearted.

I am sure that everyone has experienced the pain of a broken heart. It is a heaviness and an anguish that just doesn’t seem to ever go away. There is no peace. There is no delight. There is only despair. This type of wound is much worse than a physical wound. A physical wound can be cared for. Medicine can be prescribed that will aid in healing. What can you do when your very soul is in anguish? There is no medicine that is available from man that will ease the pain. There is no peace that can come because someone said a word of encouragement.

There is only one way to ease the anguish and the pain.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians 4:7 (NIV))

Have you been wounded by life?

Have you felt the pain of despair and anguish that nothing can ease?

Life is difficult. Sin is rampant. Pain is inevitable.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
(John 16:33 (NIV))
