Better Than Chocolate

John 10:28, NIV: I give them eternal life, and they shall never
perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand.
A little boy was given a piece of chocolate, which he decided to hold onto for
later. After a while of holding it tightly in his hand, he opened his hand to
find the chocolate and melted and left a mark in his hand. The chocolate sure
didnít last very long. In fact, it didnít even make it to the boyís mouth. So
much of what we hold onto in this life is like the chocolateómelting away. We
hold tightly to things that seem real, yet have no truly lasting qualities. What
is real to you? What do you hold on to? Is God real to you? Are you holding on
to Him, knowing He is more real than anything else? A couple of thousand years
ago, Jesus took up a cross for you and me. He held us in his heart and mind as
he was crucified to redeem us. What He did left a mark on His hands that will
never melt away. Consider today what you hold on to. Is it real? Is it eternal?
Is it Jesus?
