The key to enjoying life

August 2, 2012

“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Matthew 11:29-30

I was on an airplane one day on my way back to Texas, and as I usually do on flights, I sat back, relaxed, and pulled out a book to read. I had full confidence in the pilot, and wasn’t worried in the least about arriving safely.

But I noticed a lady across the aisle from me who was visibly nervous. She just sat there wringing her hands and staring out the window for the whole trip. I don’t know if she was afraid to fly, but she certainly wasn’t enjoying herself. We both got to our destination, but I enjoyed my flight, and I’m pretty sure she didn’t.

There are a lot of Christians today who just sort of survive through the Christian life rather than thrive through the Christian life. They get up every day, try to make it to work with smiles on their faces, and pretend they have the joy of the Lord when really, they’re not enjoying life at all.

The truth is that if you’re in Christ, we’re going to make it to the same destination. So instead of just making it through every day, enjoy the journey of life. Live in faithful obedience, and experience God’s immeasurable peace each and every day!

ENJOY THE JOURNEY OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE BY LIVING IN OBEDIENCE AND LETTING GOD’S PEACE RULE IN YOUR HEART.

Get straight, biblical answers to questions our culture is asking!


Dear Friend,

A lot of people doubt the Bible has anything good to say – much less relevant answers to questions about things like same-sex marriage and abortion. But the truth is, the Bible contains the very words of God about these subjects and so much more.

That’s why I want to send you a copy of my popular series on CD called ‘Straight Up.’

Packed with the truth of Scripture, ‘Straight Up will give you the tools you need to give a loving and compassionate response to our culture about issues such as:

  • Same-sex marriage
  • Abortion
  • Tolerance
  • God’s will
  • And much more!

Straight Up is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim truth to our truth-hungry world. So please request it when you give today. Thank you!
