Liberation from death, from bondage of power and possessions. Why, to be Christian is the happiest privilege a human can enjoy and yet, how many look upon it as such?
Gloom and despair should have no place in a Christian's life - sadness, yes, sorrow, yes, because to be sad is a human condition but to despair means to have no hope - and hope is what Chritianity preaches, based on the resurrection of Christ.
So, Lord, let me bring to mind often, daily when I feel weary and joyless that to call myself a Christian is to have you as my Leader, my Lord, my Master - that despair and gloom should have no place at all even though there is evil - teach me to seek you out in the simplicity of my heart, and you will rest me in assurance and peace and tranquility.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
