The Bible, from beginning to end, tells the story of Jesus Christ, the central character in all of history. It is Jesus who provides the solution to our desperate situation. Sinful and lost, we are unable to escape the punishment we deserve by any effort of our own.
Romans 3:23 tells us, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Both the bad news and the good news is delivered by Romans 6:23. It tells us, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Roman’s 5:8 declares that, “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Jesus’ death paid the penalty for our sins. His resurrection was His demonstration of His power over death, and paves the way for the resurrection of His believers.
God has provided a way to become reconciled to Him and save us from the eternal consequences of our rebellion against Him. Romans 10:9 explains clearly, “that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.“
If you have taken this step of faith, your next task is to, “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2 Peter 3:18) New Life Community Church is here to help you take your first step of faith, to mature in that faith and get to know Jesus, our Savior.
