It’s A Wonderful Life
Intro: Jesus is wonderful. He does wonderful things. His love is wonderful, limitless, and it breaks down our barriers. Jesus is marvelous, astounding, admirable, unusually good, altogether different, and extraordinary. Jesus is wonderful even when we are not wonderful and life is not wonderful. Jesus is the giver of wonderful things, and one of the most wonderful is peace. He causes wonderful, astonishing, unexpected, beyond normal things to happen – unusual, miraculous things that seem impossible! For those living with too much inner turmoil, for those losing a grip on life, drained of hope and joy for the future, there is a wonderful peace available for you, for those empty and facing a crisis.
