A Changed Eternity Means a Changed Now


The principal truth of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ is that in one moment in human history God himself accomplished the reconciliation of the human race with himself. The payment for sin which Jesus made on the cross when he experienced God’s righteous anger over all the evil, pain and suffering from the past, present and future was once, for all and 100% effective. While we typically apply how this massive truth influences where we will spend eternity, the effects of the crucifixion when applied to our lives in the here and now can only serve to strengthen our confidence in what we look forward to in heaven.

Chances are that at this very moment there are at least a few things which are making your life less than perfect. Probably, the cause of that sense of dissatisfaction has something to do with people in general, family members specifically, self-centered pride and a gnawing feeling that life is so hard while at the same time seems so insignificant. If you are nodding your head right now, know this, the most effective way to deal with all those issues is to bring them into the light of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. What Christ accomplished that day changes us, changes other people and changes what is important.

If you are looking for a change in your life right now, join us this weekend for one of our worship services. Jesus’ crucifixion is too powerful to be isolated in the future.

Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
