We were born with a deep sense of eternity.
It’s inside us
It’s echoes through our doubts and struggles for meaning and hope
But we must ask… IS this life all that there really is? Or are we shaped and formed by a living God
There’s too much beauty, too much wonder, too much extravagance for a simplistic and crude explanation that everything around us is merely accidental… Like pottery his hands crafted this world in all its beauty and symmetry.
It’s a portrait of a present and active God lovingly desiring a connection with his creation.
Through wars, chaos, injustice and disease
He’s been reaching out.
The problem is that the bridge was broken between the creator and his creation.
But the Bible also writes that God’s perfect son was born and lived a perfect life.
Jesus showed us how to live and then he died as a sacrifice for our sin.
God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in his son Jesus will not die but will have eternal life.
What we’ve earned is death, but the gift God gives to those who believe is eternal life. It’s not religion, it’s not legalism, it’s not performance. It’s grace.
No matter who you are, where you’ve been, or what you’ve done. You’ve been invited to this table of His grace.
So would you pray this prayer.
Father God, I am in need of forgiveness and belonging. I believe that your Son came into this world, lived a perfect life and paid the death penalty for my sin. I accept the gift of being a part of your family. Thank you for the eternal life you offer. I lay everything down at your feet. Forgive me, wash me clean and take me in.
If you’ve prayed that prayer we want to welcome you into a family. That’s the big story. We’d love to help you connect with a church where you can grow in your faith. The real adventure begins today.
