Hard-wired for something greater?
Deep down we are hard wired to long for Jesus. Until we find a relationship with Him we will always feel unfulfilled, insecure, anxious, hopeless and empty. It is where we can find true unending peace. He provides meaning in the life we were destined to live. It is where true HOPE can be found.
Without Jesus and Heaven as a goal what the meaning of life and what is the point of living?? What is the point of this pain and struggling in this life? How hopeless does life feel during times of struggle with coronavirus, ,we all need hope and faith to go on…
It is only in Jesus that all makes sense, who can provide this hope and faith in the fact that things will change. The pain, the suffering, the ups, the downs – and the very meaning of life. It all makes sense once we learn why Jesus came and who He is to us and what He did for us. Best of all it equips you with the tools and supports you need to help you through life.
33 I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” (John 16:33 Bible – NAB© *)
Jesus is the son of God who became man. Jesus came to teach us how to live in the truth of perfect love – the truth will set you free. Jesus came so that we may have a life of eternal peace in Heaven. Isn’t this what everyone deep down desires. Is this what you desire?
Jesus wants to give this life to you. For proof of what He can do in your life I encourage you to read my story: “STOP! THIS IS NOT THE WAY” by Mathew SullivanKnow that you are not alone. There are 2.5 billion Christians in the world right now waiting to help you on the journey. Read on…

BONO – THE LEAD SINGER OF U2
Bono, the lead singer of U2 gives hope and insight to those who are struggling saying: “There’s nothing hippie about my picture of Christ. The Gospels paint a picture of a very demanding, sometimes divisive love, but love it is. I accept the Old Testament as more of an action movie: blood, car chases, evacuations, a lot of special effects, seas dividing, mass murder, adultery. The children of God are running amok, wayward. Maybe that’s why they’re so relateable. But the way we would see it, those of us who are trying to figure out our Christian conundrum, is that the God of the Old Testament is like the journey from stern father to friend. When you’re a child, you need clear directions and some strict rules. But with Christ, we have access in a one-to-one relationship, for, as in the Old Testament, it was more one of worship and awe, a vertical relationship. The New Testament, on the other hand, we look across at a Jesus who looks familiar, horizontal. The combination is what makes the Cross.”Bono on Grace: “I love the idea of the Sacrificial Lamb. I love the idea that God says: Look, you cretins, there are certain results to the way we are, to selfishness, and there’s a mortality as part of your very sinful nature, and, let’s face it, you’re not living a very good life, are you? There are consequences to actions. The point of the death of Christ is that Christ took on the sins of the world, so that what we put out did not come back to us, and that our sinful nature does not reap the obvious death. That’s the point. It should keep us humbled. It’s not our own good works that get us through the gates of heaven.” It’s messages like this that will help us through coronavirus and lead us all to the truth. That God is real.

CS LEWIS: THE AUTHOR OF THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA
Is Jesus really God incarnate?
CS Lewis the author of “The Chronicles of Narnia’s” insights may provide you with hope if you are struggling with the meaning of all this struggling in your life through coronavirus as he answers a very important question: who is Jesus.. He states ‘I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic — on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg — or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. … Now it seems to me obvious that He was neither a lunatic nor a fiend: and consequently, however strange or terrifying or unlikely it may seem, I have to accept the view that He was and is God.’

JESUS CALLS US TO LOVE
Jesus came to lead us all to think, act, talk and be in love. To love God, each other and to love ourselves. He came to give hope to those who were struggling, including you right now troubled by the effects of coronavirus. We are all created in love. To describe Jesus in one word: it would be love. The world could really do with more love right now as there is so much suffering. Be like Jesus, be light to the world. Live in love. Every interaction you have forms a chain reaction. He will help you along the way.
Jesus is real and so is Heaven. “Jesus loves you too, and all the human race. Jesus offered himself to death, a painful and shameful death, because of love for you and all of us… Why does Jesus make a difference? Because he is the son of God. Because HE IS alive today. He came alive after his death, with a new and glorious life. When he left the earth, he made sure his Holy Spirit would live in the men and women who would put their faith in him. You can be one of those people.” Father Paul Rankin OP – Dominican Priest
What can I do right now?
OK. So how do we take the first step and find out who is Jesus to me and how can I find him?.. You could read my story of miraculous conversion and healing to find out how. STOP! THIS IS NOT THE WAY by Mathew Sullivan I did everything the hard way, to show how it easy it could be for you…
Or you could simply invite Jesus into your life and let go and let God take over. He will take care of the rest. He will not come unless invited. He gave us all freedom of will to choose between good and bad – God or no God, peace or struggling- so we must first make the choice to invite Jesus into our lives.Sister John Marie, Catholic nun, is forever saying that “you don’t need to go to a Church to pray. You have a direct line to Him and He is always waiting to hear from you. Aren’t we lucky to have our faith?”
