OK, call me a relic, but I just can't do the whole fake Christmas tree thing, OK? I'll gladly battle the needles and the sap any day to be able to experience bona fide branches. Why settle for a knockoff when you can have the real thing?
Of course, people have been settling for knockoffs for centuries - substituting politics for hope, getting high for real happiness and sex for unloseable love. The truth is, only a relationship with the God who made you can really satisfy you.
The Bible says we were "created by Him and for Him." But the truth is, we're away from Him. And as God says, "All of us have wandered away like sheep; each of us has turned to his own way." But God came after us that first Christmas, and that awful Good Friday when, as the Bible says, "the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him."
You don't ever again have to settle for the cheap substitutes that have always left you empty. If you want what Jesus died to give you, visit our website at NeedHim.org.
