What’s the heaviest weight you can lift?
Schoolbag (6kg avg.)
Gold bar (12kg. avg.)
Teacher’s desk (90kg avg.)

The weight of our guilt is too heavy for anyone to carry. You were not created to live with guilt.

“He (Jesus) personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed” (1 Peter 2:24 – http://bit.ly/2OdTT9R).

Only Jesus can carry the weight of your sin. Give your sin to him now and believe in faith that you are forgiven.

We hear a lot these days about Social Justice and it can feel like something for us to do in our spare time. But go and read Isaiah 61 (http://bit.ly/2AfJAiD).

It is summed up in verse eight which reads, “I, the Lord, love justice; I hate robbery and wrongdoing.” It is not often we see the word ‘hate’ associated with God and so when we do we need to take notice.

Clearly Justice is something that God really cares about which means that for us it should not be seen as an extra but a key part of who we try to be.

That little ‘low battery’ sign on your phone which always pops up at the worst time is also a reminder that everything we create runs down or comes to an end. Sure, you can charge the battery but eventually it’s useless.

You are different. God didn’t create you to come to an end. God created you to live for eternity.

“Jesus said to her, ‘I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me will live even if he diesDo you believe this?'” (John 11:25-26 http://bit.ly/2OeXi87).

Knowing that you will live forever, should change how you approach today.

Psalm 62:5 (http://bit.ly/2A5E1D1) reminds us that God has our backs. Read the whole Psalm when you get a chance. Whenever life feels a little crazy or out of control I head here. The encouragement to stop and take a step away from the busyness and chaos and to just wait on God. To just be reminded once again. To be still. To be quiet. To reflect on who God is and what He has done for you.

They say there are two rules to life: [1] There is only one God [2] It is not me. Let that thought guide you today.
