Are you sad and tired of life? Does it seem everything is working against you? Do you feel you’ve got no reason to live again in this world? Do you want to be forgiven? Are you in pain and in recurrent distress? One thing I’ll tell you today is that your pain and shame isn’t uncommon. Many people have faced these conditions and have come out unscathed. The reason is because they ran towards Jesus. In a bright spark of realization, they discovered that if they could run to Jesus, all their pain and distress will be transformed into joy and gladness. And that is very true. Jesus still turns pain to lasting joy and gladness.
Our world is filled so much pain and suffering, it is only Jesus who can deliver men from the bondages of devil. He soothes the heart of those who humbly approach him in total surrender. He saves men to the uttermost, even those who have condemned themselves to hell. He never saves men in part, he saves men in totality. Jesus is calling anyone who is tired from carrying heavy loads. He is calling to give such rest from all their unnecessary labours. He says in “Matthew 11:28 (KJV) Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Why You Need to Run to Jesus
There are many reasons why you need to run to Jesus. If you’re in pain, seeking solace or maybe you are continually tortured by sin, Jesus Christ can give you the freedom you so much desire. Apart from these, check out the other reasons below;
He can deliver you from death and the grave: Are you scared of death? Come to Christ today. He has already won the victory over death and the grave. He is willing to extend that privilege of authority of death to all those who believe in His name.
“1 Corinthians 15:55-57 (KJV) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
He can give you perfect peace: In our world today, many people have riches, wealth and all the other good things of life, but they lack peace of mind. The devil torments those under his control with fear, anxiety and dread. However, only Jesus can provide peace to your heart, He’s the Prince of Peace. Assuredly, He promises in John 14:27 (KJV) “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
Only Jesus can provide Strength in times of weaknesses: Even the strongest of humans have their moments of weakness and helplessness. Only Jesus can give you strength when you are weak. He renews the strength of those who run to Him like the eagle’s. He is the strength giver. He never despises anyone. Run to Him and you will experience His limitless strength channeling through you.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and Life: Many at times, people say there are many ways to God, but the only way God travelled to reach man, is Jesus. He is the way to the infinite vastness of the knowledge of God. Jesus is also the truth that can set you free. He is life. Jesus quickens what sin has destroyed in your life and brings forth a restoration that cannot be splintered or denied by all the forces of evil. The Bible says it better in John 14:6 (KJV) “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Do you seek life today? Jesus has life in abundance. He is the life giver. Run to Him today and you will enjoy eternal life. I know sin has done a lot of harm in you. That is what sin does, it destroys virtue, purpose, hope and a bright future. That is why you need to run to Jesus. He is calling out to you. Follow his dear voice.
Say this prayer if you are ready run into the arms of Jesus;
Jesus, I realize what a mess I have made my life into. I am deeply sorry for all my sins (Confess all you sins to Him). I ask that you forgive me and wash me clean with you blood. I run into your arms this moment. I make you the Lord and Saviour of my life. I promise to serve you all of my days. Thank you Jesus. Amen.
