Ok, so either
a) you’re reading this to find out about the diet pill
b) you receive this e-mail daily
c) you are just curious to see what I’m about to say…
In any case, you have come to the right place. This is the story about how to shed that unsightly, disgusting looking, excess blubber that we all have around our waist, but more importantly all wrapped up in our mind.
Just last week I went to the doctor for an annual physical, and he shed some light on my condition using 4 curse words: diet, exercise, fruits, and vegetables.
I don’t really care for any of those items in my life, but I know I need them all. Problem is, he forgot to mention the most important thing I have in my life that I need to get rid of: sin.
You see, even if I start dieting and cut back on my fat intake,
even if I start exercising, and get into a routine to make my heart healthy
even if I start eating right, introducing good fruits and vegetables into my body to improve my health
even with ALL of those things (and adding vitamins), I still have a major problem with sin.
The WORD of Life tells us that “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23 NIV).
And if we all sin, then we must pay the consequences: “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23a NIV).
The good news, following all this bad, is that there is a cure: “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23b NIV)
Many of us have committed to a New Year’s Resolution, and by this time over 90% have already failed miserably at keeping it for more than a few short weeks.
Eternal life in Christ Jesus, however, is not a New Year’s Resolution – it’s a way of life.
So how does one start:
“whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16b NIV)
Believe in Christ Jesus today and shed that unsightly, disgusting looking, excess blubber that God calls sin.
His Son, Jesus Christ, is the Best and only cure you’ll find on the market!
