It's been a year of the mask, thanks to a small but dangerous virus. They say masks are for protection. They also offer a place to hide. I mean, the mask has been worn for years. Like the "I'm OK" mask when we're dying inside. The "I'm a Christian" mask when Jesus is in your head but not in your heart. All kinds of masks that conceal the true us from everybody but God that is.
The Bible says "People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." He sees the broken, the fake, the dark, the dirty. But knowing what He knows, He says, "I have loved you with an everlasting love." Because He knows the mess behind our mask there was Christmas, when He sent His Son to be born in a manger and ultimately to die on a cross for our sin.
And He wants you in heaven with Him forever, but you have to put your trust in Jesus to go there. And if you've never done that and you want to, contact us at 888-NEED-HIM or ChatAboutJesus.com. No more mask because you are loved forever.
