This week on Reaching Your World.

Series: Luis Palau | Relevant Life in Jesus

People sometimes ask if Jesus Christ is relevant to our lives today, and the answer is a resounding yes! This week on “Reaching Your World,” Luis Palau will point out how Jesus is relevant to every aspect of our lives.

Our Psychological Disorders Wednesday, August 21, 2019

There are many emotional disturbances that we all struggle with. A big source of anxiety is unresolved guilt. Unresolved guilt can cause all sorts of issues for people. But when we come to Jesus Christ he washes our mind and begins to heal our life. He cleanses us so we can be at peace with God regarding our past life and sins and failures. The Bible says, “The blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God purifies us from all sin.”

That’s the first big step to healing. We have to be forgiven. We must admit that we’ve sinned against God. And when we do, He will take away our guilt and we will experience a new peace and joy unlike anything else. There’s a song I heard the other day that was so powerful. It said, “I still remember the day you saved me, the day you called out my name. You said you loved me, you’d never leave me, and I’ve never been the same.” Coming to Jesus Christ changes each one of us so we are never the same- in the very best of ways!

The peace of God that passes all understanding will keep our minds and hearts in Christ Jesus. Share this amazing truth with a friend who is struggling today.

Our Intellectual Quest Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Each person is made up of body, soul and spirit. We are three-dimensional. So I don’t believe you can truly be complete and mature in any sense, even intellectually, until you come to know Jesus Christ.

I was once on a radio call-in show in the United Kingdom, and a lawyer called in. He was angry that I was sharing this concept. He said, “I have a great wife, wonderful children, a fulfilling career, plenty of money. How can you say my life isn’t complete?” And I told him very honestly, “No one can be a whole person until they come alive to God.  Your spirit is dead.” You may be a fabulous person, highly educated, and have a wonderful family. But you are missing out on one third of your life. You are living in two dimensions when you were created to live in three. When you come to know Jesus your mind will expand and your knowledge will increase. You will be fully alive for the first time. Paul says in Ephesians 2, “You were dead in your trespasses and sins but God made you alive in Christ.” You cannot be fully alive apart from Jesus Christ.

So, for the intellectual questions that come, Jesus Christ is a champion. Jesus Christ is relevant to our intellect. In Him alone you can be completely alive. Remember this as you reach your world today.

The Only Time we've Got Monday, August 19, 2019

A humorist once paraphrased Dickens, saying, “Whether this is the best of times or the worst of times, it’s the only time we’ve got!” I thought that was pretty good. And it’s true, you know. When we turn on the news it can be scary and people are worried. Is another war about to break out? Will the economy get better? What is happening to the family today? There is a lot of fear. But I really like the approach of thinking of these times as the only time we’ve got. This is it, and God put each of us on this earth for such a time as this. 

God placed you here in this time, in this place, to reach your world. And you can do it. You have an amazing opportunity to shine for Jesus Christ in dark times and worrisome days. Jesus says in Matthew to “let your light so shine before men that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in Heaven.” You can actually be the light of Jesus Christ to your friends and neighbors. Jesus Christ is the light.  He lives in us who believe in Him, so we become the light by reflecting Christ in us. You can bring hope to the hopeless. So, will you reach your world today? After all, this is the only time we’ve got.
