The euphoria of Christmas has worn off of us as the kids head back to school, our work week is back to the full schedule and the bills are rolling in from your holiday spending sprees. The cool plastic toy you purchased for your child, niece or grandchild is broken already or they are bored with it. The awesome kitchen gadget you had to have just isn’t as awesome as you thought. The outfit on the model on the website looks much better on them than it does you. Buyers remorse has sunk in. $$$$$ dollar signs flash before your eyes as you see another “wasted” Christmas explosion of spending.
We always think we know what we want and need better than anyone else. But then reality hits and we find out we aren’t as brilliant as we think we are. We get things wrong quite often. We seem to emphasize the earthly elements of our lives and forget what is truly important, our eternal life in heaven.
We can thank God that he has no buyers remorse concerning us. He sent his son Jesus to save us from our sins. He had JESUS pay the price of our sins. What if God had buyers remorse and changed his mind because we aren’t honoring and praising him enough for what he’s done? We’d be lost forever in eternal darkness in the depths of sin and despair. I don’t want to be in that pit of despair and hopelessness! I want to be with Jesus in the heavenly home God has prepared for me.
How do you not want to hear the saving message of JESUS? How do you ignore the forgiveness given to us freely by our heavenly father? Get into God’s word! We have an opportunity every day of the week with a Bible class except Friday. But, we have the one year Bible study group chat that happens everyday! Be strengthened, be renewed by the good news of Jesus.
