Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
You hear people moaning and groaning about what a bad life they have! They seem to never be satisfied with anything that ever comes their way. They covet what others have, or what others are doing. I haven't decided if it's because of the way they've been brought up, their inability to make a good life, or maybe they are jealous of what others have.
When sin fills our lives, we can never be satisfied. The enemy is always on our back, telling us that things aren't good for us. We need to get out there and 'take on the world'.....so to speak! And, we usually listen (confess up!) to the enemy.
Life is worth living, when you get the enemy under control, through the blood of Jesus Christ. Once, you become a Christian, and apply the Word to your life every day, there is nothing that you can't accomplish. All things are possible with God [Matt 19:26], and when you place your faith and trust in Him, then all things are possible for you. He asks only that we seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and then all these things shall be added unto you. 'All these things' are the things that we need to make our lives complete. It may not always be the things that we 'want', but it will be the things of which we have a need. He supplies all our 'need', and makes our lives worth living! When we change our attitudes, our behavior, and start walking in his precepts, life has to get better!
