Do the Math And You Will See More Clearly- Part 2

Yesterday we talked about math. I shared with you several equations and asked that you plug your name into the equations. If you haven’t read yesterday’s blog, “DO THE MATH,” below is a copy of the equations I asked you to review. Check them out. To get the complete picture, go back, and read part one of this blog. (The link is below.) You do not want to miss the lesson.

Please insert your name in the equations below.

_____ + Jesus = A fulfilled life

_____ + Jesus = a life like no other

_____ + faith = Jesus filled life

_____ + Jesus = relationship

_____ + Jesus = salvation, forgiveness, redemption, joy, happiness.

In part one, I suggested that Jesus must be part of the equation. Jesus is the answer! As a matter of fact, he is a critical part of the equation that cannot be avoided.

Today, let’s look at some other math equations from a different angle.

What happens when Jesus isn’t part of the life equation?

Without Jesus in our heart and accepting him as our Lord and Savior, our equations might look something like the following.

Please insert your name in the equations below.

_________ + pride = fall

_________ + unforgiveness = bitterness

_________ + unhealthy fear = doubt

_________ + worldly possessions = emptiness and unfulfillment

_________ + no love = loneliness

_________ + without Jesus = lost

The last equation is the most devastating because us without Jesus leads to separation from the Lord forever after we leave this earthly home.

What’s your life equation look like? Is the Lord Jesus part of your life?

It’s not too late to correct some of the answers. It’s not too late to make Jesus a permanent part of your equation.

Do the math. Do it today, don’t delay.

We are another day closer to the Lord’s return. We are not promised tomorrow, so time is critical here if you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior.

In case you are reading this and have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, here’s the gospel message in a nutshell that I am passing onto you that was passed onto me. It comes from 1 Corinthians 15:3-4.

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,”

Where will you spend eternity? In heaven or hell?

Jesus Christ changed my life forever, and I know he can change yours, too, if you let him.

Father, thank you for the gift of your son, Jesus. Thank you for the gift of eternal life and for being part of my equation – for being the answer I had been looking for all those years. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
