Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life" and "My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life"
John 14:6, 10:10 NLT
We are experiencing this rich and satisfying life in Jesus!
It is rich and powerful, and increases as we go after Him and as we share it with the world around us!
How does this happen?
From the beginning, God has initiated relationship with people. He wants relationship and our goal is respond and return.
All of us have sinned and fallen short of God's holy standard in one way or another. Every one of us.
We all need a saviour. We are all equal in this way.
What is the good news?
The good news is that our saviour, Jesus, invites us all to put our trust in what He did for us on the cross,
when he carried the consequences of our sin,
which qualifies us to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit,
which makes us children of God,
which enables us to align to and participate in God's kingdom
(to walk in His ways and listen to Him)
and this is what saves us!
There is no other way!
Did you know that God promised to one day return for his kingdom?
(We believe Him, because all His other promises have come true!)
We don't know exactly what this will be or look like, but we know it will be good!
Jesus invites us all to be His friends
and to then partner with Him in extending his love and reign to the world around us.
What should I do?
The theme in the scriptures is clear:
Do your best and trust Jesus with the rest!
Jesus gave us the achievable instruction to love Him with all our strength. Every one of us can do that.
Then we simply trust Him to cover us and count us right, because we will fall short.
THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS!
Join us on this amazing journey: from death to life, from slavery to freedom, from the orphanage to the palace, into friendship and partnership with God!
