Sin makes us dirty. Jesus cleanses us. Baptism represents what Jesus did for us by dying on the cross and then rising from the dead. His death took our sinfulness down with him to the grave and when he rose from the dead, we received new life, too. This new life is clean because of Jesus. Baptism also represents this...

Symbols mean something. It is good for us to know what they mean and how they apply to our lives. Baptism is a symbol. Baptism, in and of itself, is not special, but the truth it symbolizes is very powerful. It represents Jesus' work to save us from our sins. We proclaim Jesus through baptism.

We cannot be saved on our own. We need Jesus. How do we know this? We have a message: the Gospel, which means, literally, the Good News. We need this Good News in order to be saved from our sins and from God's punishment. We also need to proclaim this message to others.

How pleasant it would be to walk with Jesus, right? While our eternal future with Jesus is bright and pleasant, the journey there may be far from that.

There is a healthy guilt. The guilt that stings your conscience when you have done something wrong and caused pain. God intends us to feel guilty when we sin. God also provided the way to be cleansed from our sins and to have our guilt taken away, not just in the legal sense, but also in our personal feelings. Jesus...

When the Good News of Jesus is proclaimed, there are two reactions: accept or reject. No one can sit on the fence. If you really listen to the message you will hear and find the Truth. If you choose to not listen and hear what you want to hear, you will reject Life. Are you listening? Read Acts 13:13-52

1 Corinthians 15:12-28. Jesus died on the cross. He was buried. Had he stayed in the grave, he would be no better or different than any other human. But Jesus rose again from the dead. Both the cross and the grave are empty because Jesus is alive. Because Jesus is alive, we are alive, too, through faith in the fact of...

Isaiah 53 – Jesus was our substitute on the cross (Galatians 3:13). He took upon himself all of God’s righteous and holy punishment reserved for us.
By Brad Quiring on March 25, 2018
The cross was very costly for Jesus. It cost Him His life. It was costly for God the Father, as it cost Him His son. But all this was done out of love for us. What will our response be? Do we live for ourselves and today, or do we live for Someone who is so much higher and greater?...

Jesus died for us to take away our sin nature and our sinful lifestyle. His death didn’t just take sin away, it gave us new life, a new self, a new being and a new purpose in life. We died with Christ so that we could become new. Galatians 2:19-21; Romans 6:1-14.

The message of the cross, of Jesus’ substitutionary death, is the primary message. God turned the shame and curse of the cross into His glory and our salvation. This is what we proudly proclaim: The Gospel of Jesus is simple: Jesus died on the cross for our sins. That is all we have to announce. Hebrews 12:1-3; 1 Corinthians 1:17-18

We seem to be stuck in an endless cycle of problems, bad choices and the negative consequences of our selfishness. Who is going to save us from all this? God had a choice: leave us to our own devices or step in an offer us salvation. He chose salvation and provided it all through Jesus, whose name means, “God is...

The modern definition of love is either extremely shallow and self-seeking or is set up as something that is so idealized it can never be attained. The reality is that love is something others’ focused and has been demonstrated by God’s gift to the world: Jesus. Love arrived at Christmas.

We live for the glory of God alone. Colossians 3:16-17. Everything in this universe, everything in our lives, everything that is said and done is to be done for the glory of God alone. God made everything for His glory. He saved us from our sins and gave us forgiveness and eternal hope for His own glory. God's not an...

Colossians 1:13-20. Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King. He is the creator of all things, He is Lord over all things. He saved us from our sins through His person and His work. Jesus truly is THE Way, THE Truth and THE LIFE. No one comes to the Father BUT BY HIM.

We are saved by the grace of God alone. Ephesians 2:1-10. Grace is a free, undeserved gift from God. We do not earn it, we just receive it because God gives it to us through Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 2:8 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God.” We are saved through faith in Jesus Christ alone. We are saved by believing and placing our trust in the person and work of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Bible. We are saved by faith, not by...

Isaiah 53:5: By Christ’s stripes we are healed from the eternal sickness of sin and all its consequences. Physical healing is one of the tools with which God works in our lives. It can be a sign of his undeniable power. Isaiah 53 is a powerful chapter in the Bible as it predicts not only Jesus coming to the earth, it...
