One of the things I love about following Jesus is that He is never done with me. God is always loving me, always teaching me something new, always inviting me into His good works, and inviting me to participate in His Story of Redemption. When I first began to learn about Christianity, I understood it as a list of things I needed to do to be accepted by God. As I began to truly know the Lord through prayer, His Word, and His people, I began to see how I was already loved and accepted and it gave me the freedom to obey God from a place of love.
My prayer is that as people walk through the doors of our church, they would know and share the hope that is found in Christ.
