Romans 7:24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!

God wants us to deal with the realities of life. God wants us to deal with life as life is for us in this moment. Our life may stink because of our pain and afflictions. However, God is not blessed by our lying and misconstruing the truth about our difficulties. This does NOT mean we have permission to whine and complain about our pain. Our mission is to lift others up to heaven, not pull them down to earth through our complaining. Indeed we are wretched in the eyes of God because of our sinfulness. Indeed we do live within a body of death. However, God sent Christ into the world to turn us from being wretched into being creatures of heavenly beauty. God sent Christ into the world to rescue us from living within our body of death…if we are willing.

Because of your pain, these words may seem only like empty sounds or empty thoughts. But you must keep trying to meet Him. I promise you, the more you try to meet Christ in the air, the closer your meeting becomes. Praise God. Amen.
