So What if I Am Wrong

This time of year I can’t help but reflect on the Jewish Passover and the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus as I celebrate this miracle of God’s love along with Christ’s disciples around the world. The only thing that was really different this year is that I couldn’t help but think, “Ya know, even if I am wrong, so what? “. Then it struck me as strange that this is the first time in my life that I could actually say that about anything, without being the least bit concerned about some kind of ensuing consequences.
You see, in the years since my commitment to follow Christ, I can honestly say I have absolutely no regrets. Not only are there no regrets, but the total onslaught of blessings I continue to experience are completely transforming my life. Even if I never leave this earth when I die to see Christ face to face, as I believe I will, the benefits I’ve experienced from serving Him while on this earth alone, are all I will ever need to be eternally grateful.
I’m talking about blessings that I know come from God, because this world does not have them to offer. Blessings like the unquenchable love that has been poured into my heart to the point of overflowing. An amazing love that knows no end and leaves no room for anger, bitterness, or resentment to set in. Then there’s the transformation that has taken place in my mind. A mind that once was painfully skeptical, cynical, and snarled is now filled with an unquestionable peace which surpasses all understanding, and a confidence that leaves me rest assured. Yet the most surprising blessing of all is the unspeakable joy that fills my spirit. This very spirit that has tasted bareness, bleakness, and brokenness now tastes of the living waters that spring forth as a wellspring of joy, a beautiful by-product of becoming one with God’s Holy Spirit, through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
So all I can say is, so what if I am wrong. I wouldn’t trade these treasures for anything this world has to offer. The things of this world only leave you feeling empty and wanting more, but, whoever drinks of these waters will never thirst again.
