God is LOVE!
The demonstration of God’s Love was the sending of His Son, Jesus Christ to die on a sinner’s cross for us. You see God already knew that we would lie, cheat, steal, etc… yet God still sent His Son to die for you & me. In Romans 5:8 it says, “God demonstrates his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” One important truth of Jesus’ death was that He was innocent of death, no crime or sin was committed by Him. You see He took your place, He took the blame! The punishment for our sin was laid upon Him.
2 Corinthians 5:17&18 says; “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.” All of this is possible by placing our faith in Jesus Christ who died to pay the ransom for our sin and was made alive by God’s power to give us Eternal Life. By God’s power He raised Jesus from the dead, defeating sin, death and the grave.
This is why Christianity is different from all other religions, God sent Jesus to pay the price for man’s sin – the work for Salvation is DONE. We are given the choice to believe in God, repent of our sin & accept this great BIG Love only found in Jesus Christ.
And this why we celebrate and why we invite you to come and celebrate with us. We hope to see you soon!
Praying to see you here!
