    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    Easter and what it means

    It's now Easter, which means we are celebrating our Lord's resurrection. But why is it that we have one designated day to celebrate this? Because of this event, we have eternal life with God! I think that is something to be thankful for every day.

    I Peter 2:24

    It's now Easter, which means we are celebrating our Lord's resurrection. But why is it that we have one designated day to celebrate this? Because of this event, we have eternal life with God! I think that is something to be thankful for every day.

    I Corinthians 15:3-5

    3For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.

    If you want more reading, try John 3

    If the only reason you like Easter is for the plastic grass or the eggs, then you have my sympathies. You have missed the entire point of Easter. Yes, it has been commercialized ( what doesn't wind up that way eventually... ) to where most children relate Easter to the Easter Bunny and not to what Easter actually is. You, however, know the truth now, even if you did not before.

    I once talked to someone who was strongly against the Christian faith. His arguments were that 'Christianity revolves around blood' and used lots of verses out of context. Yes, blood was spilled for us, but if it wasn't where would we be now? Jesus's death gave us new life. It was his return that gave us eternal life with Him.

    I leave you with an excerpt from John 3

    John 3:16-18

    16"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son
