Why We Should Be of Good Cheer

Jesus teaches about worry by Randy Bradley

In this blog, you may notice that we usually find stories in the Christian press that we wish to make comment on, or articles in which we feel the reader may benefit from discovering Urantia Book teachings on the subject. This article is no exception, except that we feel it is pretty much wonderful just as it is, including this snippet of advice near the end of the piece:

"When you need help in everyday life and decisions, stay in His word and trust in Him for guidance. There is no need to worry about the unknown! God promises never to leave us or forsake those who love and follow Him.

"If you allow God in the number one spot in your life, He will guide you every day.

"Matthew 6:34 says, 'So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.' "

Why We Blog

We are not always critical of Christian thought as expressed in the popular press. In the end, we feel that we are in solidarity with Christians and lovers of Jesus everywhere; we celebrate Jesus, as do all of the authors of these pieces on Jesus, and we understnd that it is not the fault of these writers that they only have Biblical stories to draw from. After all, before the delivery of The Urantia Book, that's all that has been available! And we do celebrate the fact that the Bible has been sufficient to bring countless souls to Jesus for over 20 centuries.

It's just that in The Urantia Book, we have been gifted with such an expanded revelation of the Master's life that we want to share it as often as we can; these articles in the news are a way for us to do that. We take very seriously the advice of the revelators. who tell us:

196:1.3 To "follow Jesus" means to personally share his religious faith and to enter into the spirit of the Master's life of unselfish service for man. One of the most important things in human living is to find out what Jesus believed, to discover his ideals, and to strive for the achievement of his exalted life purpose. Of all human knowledge, that which is of greatest value is to know the religious life of Jesus and how he lived it.

More Hope for the Anxious

Having said that, though, we do feel that you as the reader may wish to know even more - not only about what Jesus had to say about the subject of anxiety and worry, but what is contained in other parts of the book regarding this subject.

For that purpose, we are including a link here so that you can visit our topical study on anxiety. There are teachings of Jesus in the study, as well as passages that appear throughout the book that counsel us on anxiety...

And that's about it for now...

As Jesus was fond of saying: "Be of good cheer!"
