This Easter, celebrate the Truth of Jesus
SATAN IS A LIAR.
He wants you to believe you're not good enough for God. So when we fall short of perfection — and we always do — we get discouraged. And he'll use that discouragement to convince you that you're a lost cause.
It truly is the hum-dinger of all lies. But God has an answer — YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!
Not by your good works. Not by your good looks. Not by how much money you give or time you spend volunteering. No, you are good enough because of the blood of Jesus.
Look, we all sin. We all fall short of God's mark. And we deserve to be punished severely. But instead of punishing us, God did an amazing thing.
He punished His own Son instead.
Let's be clear ... we're not talking about being sent to bed with no supper. We're talking about DEATH, the punishment for sin. That means God sent Jesus to die in our place.
Think about that for a moment. Would you allow your own child to die for someone else? Of course not! But that's exactly what God did. He sent His Son to suffer the most gruesome death imaginable — all because He loves you so much!
Three days later, Jesus rose from the grave and overcame death. By this miracle, you never have to worry about being good enough. Nothing you've done in your past matters. God will never stop loving you. All you have to do is believe that the blood of Christ makes you good enough!
Join us Easter Sunday to celebrate this incredible gift. You'll have a chance at some fun prizes, sing some incredible songs of joy in His resurrection, and discover more about this idea of "GoodEnoughness."
You'll also witness the incredible story of Scott Bruxvoort, a former Division I basketball player who had it all — then lost it because of drugs, alcohol and problems with the law. Find out how God reclaimed Scott's life and helped him to realize, YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH, Scott!
Mark your calendar for April 1 at Crossroads. Worship times are 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. It'll be a day you won't soon forget!
