Do you believe that Jesus makes a difference in the life of people today, and do you preach like it?

I haven't been. I've noticed in all the evangelistic youth talks I can remember giving of recent the primary focus of my talk has been eternity. Little or no emphasis on the benefits of receiving Christ in this life were touched on.

How ridiculous. The life of Christ has amazing consequences in this life, how could I possibly ignore such blessings?

amen!

I'm preaching phil 1:1-11 this week and have been encouraged in considering the same thing. Eternity is of great importance but so is the way it shapes what we do now!

phil 1:9And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, 11filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God.
