Yes to Jesus!
Every person has a story. Every story matters. YOUR story matters.
The fact is that God loves you, no matter where you have been on your journey. What is even more amazing is that He loves you no matter what you have done. When you look at Jesus' words in the Gospel of John, His very heart is that you might discover what it really means to live. John 10:10
You have had experiences, both good and bad, that have brought you to where you are today. This journey you have been on may even have had some "religious" experiences that are a part of your story. Sadly, many people have thought that the way to experience this life is through using religious activity to make up for the wrong things we have done in our lives.
The bad news is that no amount of good can overcome how our sin separates us from God. Romans 3:23 There is nothing WE can do to remedy this broken relationship we have with God...The good news is that GOD did something.
When we were still broken and separated from God because of our sin, the Bible says that God reached out in love through Jesus. Romans 5:8 Jesus came and lived a perfect life so that He could offer His life as a sacrifice for our sin.
Someone had to pay the penalty for our sin, and if Jesus would not have been willing to die on our behalf, we would have been separated from God forever. But Jesus DID die for us, and we have the opportunity to find forgiveness for our sin and the ability to experience life both now and for eternity because of that sacrifice. Romans 6:23
God simply asks that we make a conscious decision of our WILL to trust Jesus alone for our salvation. It is through receiving His free gift, not our religious activity, that we can be made right with God. Helping people take steps towards a right relationship with Jesus is what we are passionate about.
