It’s all about Jesus.
Regardless of what you believe about Jesus you have to admit that there is no other name that stirs up so much controversy as the name of Jesus.
What is it about the name of a carpenter’s son from the town of Nazareth 2000 years ago?
Why do we have an entire holiday dedicated to celebrating His birth?
Why is it, You can talk about God all day long but the moment you bring up Jesus things get funny!
JESUS MANAGED TO OFFEND PEOPLE BY BEING TOO INCLUSIVE AND EXCLUSIVE ALL AT THE SAME TIME!
His life was too Inclusive
The religious were offended that Jesus ate with, and included, the outcasts.
Jesus offered forgiveness to anyone and everyone!
People who were nothing like Jesus, liked Jesus!
His message was too Exclusive
NO OTHER NAME HAS THE POWER TO SAVE
1. JESUS SAVES ME FROM MY SIN
In Genesis, sin entered the world through Adam and Eve, and has impacted every person since. Sin has wreaked havoc on our world and our relationship with God. God wants a relationship with you so bad He sent his son Jesus to die on a cross to fix all of that.
2. JESUS SAVES ME FOR ETERNITY
The Bible teaches that everyone is going to spend eternity in one of two places:
1. Heaven with God
2. Hell separated from God
People often say that they just don’t believe that a loving God would send anyone to hell. WE AGREE!!
The truth is that God doesn’t send us to hell. We send ourselves there by rejecting Jesus.
We started this church because Heaven and Hell are real. We send people on mission trips because Heaven and Hell are real. You don’t have to wonder where you will spend eternity.
3. JESUS SAVES ME BY HIS GRACE
Salvation is a gift. It cannot be earned. Jesus did for us what we could never do for ourselves.
Like any gift, it must simply be received.
If you made a decision to follow Jesus today we want to know and celebrate that decision with you!
