“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.” Psalm 46:10-11
My cell phone contract comes up in September and I am so excited to finally get caught up with technology. I feel like my phone lags in technology, has less features than others, and is much slower; better yet, I am ready to have the next best phone than what I currently have.
So what if your life was like a cell phone contract? Would you upgrade to the next greatest life-style or would you stick with what you’ve got because it’s easy to use? What if I told you that you only had to make one upgrade for the rest of your life and you’d have the greatest features, most advanced knowledge, and happiest moments?
Would you do it?
Our society is obsessed with always looking ahead to the next greatest pay raise, car, job, age, relationship, or popularity? Well guess what, if you spend your entire life always yearning for the next greatest thing your life is going to pass you by. One day you’re going to realize you’re sitting on your death bed, wondering where all the time went.
I truly and fully believe that in the year 2011 we are living in a movement of God, but you are too busy waiting to graduate, get married, or start making real money to ever be effective for the Kingdom.
The next greatest thing to take your life from good to great isn’t ahead of you, it’s behind you: Jesus died on the cross over 2,000 years ago. And to this day, and forever more, will be the ultimate upgrade; better than anything money can buy, better than any pleasure you can feel, or income bracket.
Each and every person is eligible for a free upgrade, you don’t have to wait for 2 months to roll by like I do waiting for my next phone. Jesus wants to take everything that comes with you and completely upgrade your life. This a free offer for a lifetime filled with trials, blessings in disguise, and a rebate offer that is good for eternal life with a loving God that loves you for who you are.
He overcame everything the world has to offer you, He overcame the penalties of the sins you should be facing, and He overcame every negative feeling you have about yourself.
Stop looking for the next best thing in your life, it’s sitting right in front of you. Jesus.
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries.
Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
