Hand in Hand

In the classic movie, The African Queen, Katharine Hepburn tells Humphrey Bogart, "Nature, Mr. Allnut, is what we are put in this world to rise above!" Not many people today acknowledge that fact. Instead life today is all about giving in to nature and to the instincts of the natural man. Yes, giving in often offers some pleasurable moments, but that is all it offers--moments here and there. The true lasting happiness that is joy comes from rising above nature, transcending and overcoming the natural man, and becoming something better, something more than natural.

That's where the Good News! comes in. How to rise above nature is what the Good News! of Jesus Christ is all about--we can Live in Truth and be lifted to new realms of happiness and joy that are constant instead of fleeting and momentary. We can do it because Jesus Christ has opened the doors for it to happen AND because He will take us by the hand and lead us through those doors if we will only reach out and take His hand.

When we Live in Truth we are walking hand in hand with Jesus Christ.
