Jesus Christ is at the center of all we do at Grace Community Outreach. Without His love and power, we would just have a nice social outreach. But because of His grace, we are seeing lives changed.
We all need the power of Jesus Christ in our lives. The Bible says, in Romans 3:23 "All have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God." That means, each and every one of us fail to meet God's standards of holiness. We all sin. And the wages of sin is death - eternal separation from God in hell. (Rom 6:23) We have nothing in our power to bridge that separation.
Sin is anything I think, say, or do, that breaks God's law or His heart.
Thankfully, God does not leave us hopeless in our sins. The rest of Romans 6:23 tells us the complete story, "The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord." We have earned our punishment - death. But God offers us a free gift, something we can never earn. He offers us eternal life.
When Jesus died on the cross, He took the punishment for our sin so we do not have to. In return, He offers us the gift of full freedom from our sins.
If we receive His forgiveness, He doesn't cover our sins. He removes them.
If you would like to receive God's forgiveness, you just need to tell Him. Simply pray and tell Him that you know you have sinned, you are sorry for your sins, you receive His gift of salvation, and you want to live for Him from now on.
Once you do that, it is important that you find a church where you can worship and learn with other believers. Find a church that teaches that Jesus is God and the only Son of God, and receiving His free gift is the only way to be saved.
We would love to hear from you. Please contact us and tell us about your decision to trust Jesus for salvation.
