We have been made ‘right’ in our relationship with God by His grace and His gift of righteousness to us through Christ. We are not striving and working to become right with Him or to become acceptable to Him, it’s all a gift! We have a new identity and understanding this new identity transforms our lives from the inside out!
Accessing all that Jesus has done for us begins with having a proper understanding of the gospel and the new covenant of Grace. We live in a culture steeped in self help, perfectionism and religion and it can so easily sway us to a life of human effort and works. Let God give you a fresh understanding of His Grace through Jesus' finished work at the cross. It’ll change your life forever!
The words “He is risen!” remind us of the joyous news we celebrate at Easter, that Jesus’ death was not in vain, and that He has the power to overcome anything, including death. Saying “He is risen!” allows us to share this incredible and irrefutable truth with each other. The resurrection of Christ gives us hope for salvation and for our own resurrection and eternal life.
Why should Jesus' sacrifice on the cross be a big deal to us? Why did he need to die? In this Good Friday message, we will hear how the intensity of God’s love for us is revealed through what Jesus endured on the cross.
In life new beginnings often make way for more new beginnings. A seed becomes a tree that creates more seeds. It’s the same with our relationship with Jesus. Going public with our faith creates an opportunity for somebody else to have a new beginning too.
God want's to lead us into tailor made experiences with Him. Every experience in His presence strengthens out faith and increases our confidence in who He is! Jesus led His disciples into private encounters that gave them the boldness to take Him public, and He's doing the same for us!
Small, new beginnings don't always appear to be successful at first glance , they can be hard, they can seem unimportant in the eyes of man, and it's easy to despise them. We can't always see the future with 100% clarity, but God knows that new beginnings are a setup to a significant future.
At the threshold to New Beginnings is the call to obedience. Sometimes obedience doesn’t make sense, it can even seem irrational. But when God calls us to step into something new, we can be sure that He’s up to something significant in our lives. Find out why God uses our obedience to Him, as part of the journey into New Beginnings.
God is excited about the New Beginnings He has planned for us, so much so that He makes a point of giving us glimpses of what’s coming before they arrive. He want’s us to see what’s up ahead, but sometimes we’re not looking. Be encouraged through this message to keep the eyes of your heart open, ready to see what God is already working on for your life.
