Came across a very good article by the Christian Chronicle. The article is about a rural congregation that has committed it self to ministry. This particular congregation has invested itself into prison ministry and has impacted hundreds of lives. Hope you will give it a read.
The most important thing in this life is a relationship with the very creator of life. However the human family has a universal problem, a sin problem. For we are all guilty of sin and have separated that relationship with our Creator. But thanks be to God, His love for us bridge that separation. Sending forth His only Begotten Son, Jesus, who being equal to God, put on flesh and dwelt among mankind. Lived a life without sin that He might be the perfect sacrifice to remove the sin that separates us from our Creator.
It is the Good news of the work that Jesus did on the cross that we all must here. And it is to the call of God, the gospel of Christ we need to submit. Jesus said, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” Will you believe and be baptized to be number among the saved? Will you submit to the grand sacrifice that Jesus offered to restore that most important relationship with our Creator?
