" ... nothing can ever separate us from God’s love." - Romans 8:38 -
We live in a world of comparison, where there are so many things that tell us what we are not; not pretty enough, not smart enough, not worth enough.
We believe we are each more than enough because Jesus has declared our worth. Because He is always enough.
You are loved by God. His love never fails, never ends, and will never compare to any other love. He knows you deeply, even your mistakes, and He loves you just the same.
He loves you so much that He desires for you to seek Him; God wants you to have relationship with Him, relationship that is full and intimate. But our relationship with God has been broken by sin. Sin is all of our "junk" that separates us from God, our failings to love God and others made in His image, interfering with having a life as He desires.
There is hope - His love continues.
God gave us His only Son, Jesus, so that we may have restored relationship with Him. Jesus died and rose so that we can have freedom from our sin and eternity with God.
"He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed."
- 1 Peter 2:24 -
Jesus freely offers us a relationship with Him. You don't have to "have it all together" to accept His gift. Responding simply means repenting and accepting our need for Jesus, seeking His forgiveness, and pursuing a relationship with Him in return.
"You were dead because of your sins and because your sinful nature was not yet cut away. Then God made you alive with Christ, for he forgave all our sins. He canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross."
- Colossians 2:13-14 -
God takes all of our sin - our mess, our shame, our mistakes - and uses it all for good. Let God write your story.
The Bible is God's love story to us.
The more we understand the Bible, the more we will develop our relationship with God and understand our purpose. We know that the Bible can seem overwhelming and confusing, so we wanted to provide some of our favorite resources.
Ask God for His wisdom, to have a desire to read, and to get into a rhythm. // All good relationships take time and effort "If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking." - James 1:5
