The Vision (4.10.14): Grace Points: What gives meaning to life?
Note: Here’s the script to another one of the “Grace Points” radio spots (audio here). Continue to pray for these devotionals as they are being broadcast.
Welcome to Grace Points, a ministry of Christ Reformed Baptist Church in Charlottesville, Virginia:
What gives meaning to life?
After the fall of communism, a large Scandinavian department store opened in Budapest, Hungary. The company put up billboards throughout the city.
On the billboards were two books. On the left side was a red book titled “Karl Marx: Das Kapital.” On the right side was the store catalogue with all its goods. In the middle was a question: “Which makes your life better?”
The Christian would add a third book to the billboard: the Bible. Life is more than materialism or politics. Life is about knowing the God of the Bible. This is where we find meaning.
Jesus said, “I am come that they might have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10).
Christ Reformed meets for worship each Sunday at 10:30 am at the Covenant Lower School, 1000 Birdwood Rd., just off the 250 bypass. They can also be reached on the web at christreformedbaptist.org, where you’ll find audio sermons and more Grace Points.
Grace and peace, Pastor Jeff Riddle
