The Story continued again

The grave could not hold Jesus. Three days later, Jesus emerged from His tomb, fulfilling His earthly mission to defeat sin by dying on the cross and to defeat death by rising from the dead - just as God promised.  

But the story doesn’t end there

For all those who trust in Jesus alone, God has also promised He will make all things new. The new heaven and new earth will be completely free of sin and selfishness-a place of perfect friendship with God, others, and all creation. No more shattering earthquakes, devastating tsunamis or violent storms will plague the earth. No more pain, broken hearts, sickness or death to trouble us. Everything will be restored to the way it was meant to be. God’s original purpose will flourish, as those who rust n His rescue will enter into the grand purpose of worshipping Him by loving Him, serving Him, and enjoying relationship with Him forever.

The most wonderful part of this new world is that we will be with God forever, experiencing complete joy. We will be restored to a perfect relationship with the One who created, loved, and died for us.

God is writing an amazing story from creation to restoration. He created you to be a part of that story to worship Him, serve Him and enjoy relationship with Him. By joining God In His story, you will find forgiveness, purpose, and satisfaction as you come to know the Author of life.

Faith is simple trust in Jesus Christ alone to save you. It means instead of believing you can rescue yourself from the consequences of Sin, you transfer your trust to the rescue He purchased for you by His death. Your allegiance is now to Jesus, the King. Those who place their trust in anything other than Jesus will find themselves forever separated from the loving God who gave His one and only Son to set us free from the bondage of sin. This painful separation is called Hell.

God is inviting you to be a part of the story He is writing throughout the ages to come. He is offering salvation to you today, which is your invitation to the rescue God offers. You can embrace the rescue of God by simply:

-Admitting your need to God.

-Asking Him to forgive you and help you turn from sin

-Trusting in Jesus Christ alone to rescue you

-Following Jesus Christ, the king of your life, in faith from this day forward
