DISCOVER JESUS

 

 

Discover His Grace

Grace is receiving something good we do not deserve. God offers saving grace that we need and cannot earn. The Bible tell us, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9.

 

We need God’s grace because of our sinful condition. We all have this condition, and we cannot change it by behaving better or by “getting religion.” The Bible says it this way: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23 and “For the wages of sin is death;” Romans 6:23a.

 

God’s gift of grace was purchased by Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection. Jesus is God the Son who came, died, and rose again to free us from the bondage and price of sin. He died in our place. The second part of Romans 6:23 says, “but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross was the complete and entire payment for our sin. Isaiah 55:3 tells us, “But he was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities . . .

 

God’s grace can never be earned. People and religions try to earn God’s favor, but the Bible tells us God’s grace can only be received by faith. Jesus the innocent died for us the guilty. Romans 5:8 says “. . . while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Titus 3:5 assures us, “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us . . .” We follow and obey God because of His grace, not to earn His grace.

 

God calls us to believe on Jesus to receive His saving grace. John 3:36 says,He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” Jesus said, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?” John 11:25-27. Jesus also said of Himself, “. . . I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6

 

Do you believe enough to ask Jesus for His grace? Jesus hears you. Will you tell Him you want His saving grace? “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” Romans 10:9 “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

Discover His Truth

Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32

 

Truth brings freedom like nothing else. What a privilege it is to grow in God’s Word and to discover His truth. We invite you to learn, discuss, and follow clear truths from the Bible together with us.

 

Discover Friends

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.” Acts 2:42

 

A church is a family of friends following Jesus. Church is not a time, place, or event. We do have those though, and we would love for you to join us for one.

 

Can we meet you? Let us know. Call or text us. Visit us. Email us. We would love to connect you with someone before your first visit, so you don’t have to walk in alone. In the meantime, listen to our sermons.
