I don’t usually write these ForgivenFully posts as a personal testimony, but maybe it’s the best way to share with you why this matter of Jesus dying and rising from the dead is so important. Whether you are a believer or a skeptic or you’ve made up your mind against Jesus, I relate with you and you with me more than you may realize. I try live a good life, and I bet you do too. But I know that I fall short in many ways. People say 'no one’s perfect,' but that doesn’t comfort me in the least bit. Deep down I know that life isn’t graded on a curve. There’s a sense of failure and inadequacy and guilt and fear of accountability that I can’t dull and I can’t outrun. And there’s a cry for 'more' in my life and 'more' out of life that I can’t in any way satisfy by what I do or what I pursue. Can you relate? Honestly, can you relate?
This is why, like a man in a desert who’s found an oasis of life, I point you to Jesus telling you that HIS LIFE MEANS NEW LIFE FOR YOU.
I am inviting you to that refreshing oasis of life. Come learn of Jesus. Come to my church this weekend. Or go to your church if you'll learn of life in Jesus there. Just don’t pretend that life is OK as it is or that you can ever get enough of the refreshing that Jesus extends to us through His life lived for us, given for us, and risen for us. Come and experience the truth that HIS LIFE MEANS NEW LIFE FOR YOU.
Come visit us at CHRIST OUR REDEEMER for more of this message of God's grace!
