of the Week
H.U.G. (Help Uplift Goodness)
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.… It is the Lord Christ you are serving.—Colossians 3:23–24
"If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth.
But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness."
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
This week's HUG challenge is to get help if you understand that you don't have to be perfect and cleaned up to receive salvation. None of us will ever be good enough because all have sinned. God just wants you to believe. Jesus will help clean you up. Give it to God and stop struggling on your own.
What you will need to do for this HUG Challenge:
1. Write out a list of ten things that you are struggling with.
2. Place a check mark next to each one that you have tried to fix on your own.
3. Underline each one that you were successful at completely solving on your own.
4. Now, go back through your list and decide to give each one to Jesus because you know full well that you can not fix them on your own and repent and pray, asking Jesus to send the Holy Spirit to move on your behalf to resolve these issues.
We don't have the capacity to deal with sin. We weren't created to handle sin and death. Sin corrupts. Jesus can handle it. He died for us. He conquered death and he is enough. We are perfected through Christ. He fills in every empty space in our lives with his love, mercy and grace. He felt that you were worth saving. So, no matter what anyone else says about you. Jesus showed that you were enough when he gave his life for you!

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:
This challenge is meant to let everyone know that a price has been paid for your salvation. You may not be able to change on your own but Christ can help. He gives new life. Our God is a Redeemer. He makes old things new. If you have accepted Christ already and you are still struggling, you need to make a decision on who you will serve because you are free. Serve God and live like the royalty you are!!!
