Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. Matthew 7:7

Jesus has a plan for your life. He didn’t design us to be mediocre or to just float along. There is an ache in every heart, and Jesus is the only one that will satisfy it. He has called us to this life with Him—to worship God and then have it translate into helping people.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John 3:16-17

Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6). Knowing Jesus is what we can carry into eternity. He is not just one of a myriad of religious concepts in this pluralistic, relativistic world. Jesus is authentically the resurrection and the life (John 11:25).

Jesus is an ever-present help. He conquered sin, death and eternity (1 Cor. 15:55), and He can take care of everything else. Situations may be far beyond your human skill, but nothing is too difficult for Him. Jesus’ strength is so real and deep. He is responsive and available. He’s got this whole thing figured out, and He listens to your prayer. Call out to Him. Seek God and you will find Him!

There is nobody like Jesus,
