Reality is the Thrill of Life

Reality is the Thrill of Life

Americans are starving, if not desperate for what they are calling reality. They love roller coasters, NASCAR, and Reality TV. For ratings, the networks are more than willing to satisfy those appetites.    A man lures women into a relationship with him by lying about his financial status. People are encouraged to face their worst fears by engaging in a plethora of activities, ranging from dangerous to disgusting. People from all walks of life are taken to a remote uncivilized place for the purpose of eliminating each other.

While these shows claim to be real, their end results are unrealistic. So how can anyone enjoy them? Just for the thrill of it? “You’re addicted to thrills? What an empty life! The pursuit of pleasure is never satisfied.” Proverbs 21:17 (MSG) The reality is, there is no greater thrill than knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

John 10:10 (MSG)

“Jesus said, “I came so they can have real and eternal life; more and better life than they ever dreamed of.”

Practical Application and Assignments:

Truth pictures facts as they really are, rather than that which is imaginary. Because facing the “real world” is sometimes overwhelming, many people would rather escape into a fantasy world in order to evade reality.

  • Refuse to be captivated by anything that is not edifying to your spiritual welfare. While delusion may create a diversion, make sure your attempt to clear your mind doesn’t cloud it with that which has no beneficial influence.
  • Remember, the emotional tingle of excitement created by a thrill will evaporate in a moment. Discern the difference between that which is real and that which is presented for the purpose of deception.

“Jesus Christ came so we could recognize and understand the truth of God- what a gift! Jesus is both True God and Real Life.”  1John 5:20 (MSG)
