Dear World...

Dear World...Once upon a time, you were perfect. You were spoken into being by the words of the Almighty, crafted so beautifully, filled with all good things. There were peoplea man and a woman—they were perfect too. Flawless from the hairs on their head to the soles of their feet. There were plants of every kind imaginable, animals that played together, water that ran crystal clear, a garden like none other.  

Life. Peace. Joy. Love. 

Then there was a serpent. A beast full of evil, who tempted the woman with fruit and lies. A deceptive question, a twisted answer, and sin. Sin in the perfect world that suddenly became no longer perfect.  

No longer did everything seem so beautiful.   
Hatred and anger took the place of love and joy. 
Chaos took the place of peace. 
And the ground that grew life was stained by the blood of the dead.

Many years later, there was a baby. A small, helpless infant, born in a barn and laid in a feeding trough. A picture of humanity in its lowliest form. But he was God. He was the Almighty....the Creator. The One who was rejected time and time again, shunned and cursed by the very people he created. He stooped to our filthy, humanly level and became one of us. Fully God, yet fully man. Emmanuel. The Great I AM
He lived a perfect life in a sinful world, loved by a few, followed by some, and rejected by many. 
 He came to die. He took on himself the punishment that we earned for ourselves with our own sinfulness. 
And the thing is? He didn't stay dead. He is alive and has returned to heaven with the Father. Someday soon, He is coming back. This spinning globe will not last forever, and there is an eternity of either life or death. We can choose God and live forever with Him, or we can reject Him and experience eternal death.

Dear world...don't reject Him. He is real, and He loves you. 
Lay your burdens at the feet of the One who will carry them for you, and give Him your life. 
He is waiting with open arms.

"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30
