all of us are longing to be reunited with our Father, even though we may not realize it.

 

God made the way possible in Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin, mysteriously God in the flesh.  He came to preach good news to the poor, to bind up the broken-hearted and set captives free.  He LIVED a perfect LIFE and proclaimed the arrival of the Kingdom.  He was rejected by many, crucified, buried, and rose again.  Through Him, the Son of God, we have been forgiven, and have received NEW LIFE.  Our relationship with God has been made right again, with Jesus being the only mediator between God and us.  Everyone who accepts His sacrifice is given the Holy Spirit Who helps us walk in this NEW LIFE of worship and missional expression of our faith.
