The Point Is… Jesus
by Larry Williford

Beyond all the ministries, beyond all the music. Beyond all the buildings, structures, and facilities, our point, our direction, our purpose is Jesus. Jesus: Son of God, Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer. Jesus came to earth to endure the same experiences and temptations as all men face. He was tempted in all ways, yet remained without sin. By doing so He showed Himself to be the perfect sacrifice; ready, willing, and able to stand in our place in judgment for the sins we committed.

Greater love has no man than he lay down his life for a friend. That is what He did for you and me. He loves us so much that He willingly accepted the punishment for our sins. He submitted to the humiliation and pain of crucifixion that was rightly ours to receive. He shed His blood and died so that we might live. Then, He rose from the dead, proving He is all He claimed to be, and that He can do for us all He said He would.

He said He will take our sins and remove it from us as far away as the east is from the west. He said He was going to prepare a place for us in His Father's house, so that where He is, we too can be. He said He will give us life; rich, abundant, eternal life. He also promised He is coming back. All we need to do is trust Him.

Do you have Jesus in your life? Have you trusted Him to atone for your sins? Would you like to spend all of eternity in the very presence of God, and do so without guilt or shame? If you would like to discuss these questions, or learn how you can have a personal relationship with the Lord, contact us. Someone will get back to you, and show you how you too can have eternal life.

God Bless you, and watch over you always.
