My sister, Mary was an imperfect person, but she loved Jesus. She enjoyed blessing people with gifts. She laughed and her wit was quick and sharp. One day she told me she really enjoyed listening to John Osteen from Houston, TX and said I ought to hear him preach. He’s been gone for twenty years now. She’s been gone for about five years, I think. Today, I was searching for a sermon on television and I found this on YouTube. So, in honor of my sister Mary, I copied and pasted it. I thought I’d share it here.
It’s sounds hard to be a Christian, and sometimes it is, but the alternative is much, much harder. I’ve lived both ways and I’ll take Jesus over not having Him any day. Jesus makes life worth living, even when life hits and hits again, and the pain hurts. Jesus takes the sting out of the hurt, compared to going it alone.
May God bless you!
