Our God is in the Life Changing business! From the very beginning we see that Jesus was always God’s plan to save humanity, but in order to do that, there would need to be a change. It would require a change for the penalty of sin and death, and it would require a change in our hearts and lives. That change came through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and by accepting Him as Lord and Savior, and following Him, we too can experience real life change.
“Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.” (NIV) 1Corinthians 15:51-52
He first wants us to be connected with Him through Christ, and second, He wants us to be connected with each other as the Body of Christ, the church. Therefore, the church isn’t just something that we do, it’s who we are. Our goal as a church family is to continually strive to be a genuine community of faith where people feel accepted and free to connect with God as well as connect with each other.
“What this adds up to, then, is this: no more lies, no more pretense. Tell your neighbor the truth. In Christ’s body, we’re all connected to each other, after all.” (MSG) Ephesians 4:25
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.” (NIV) John 13:34-35
“We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.” (NIV) 2Thes. 1:3
