Message: What Shall I Do?

 Why did Jesus have to die? To answer this question, we will travel back in time and answer these questions. Who was Barabas? Why did the crowd choose Barabas? What difference does it make? What does it mean to us?

What shall I do with Jesus? Choices, choices, choices! No one can escape this question. You can choose Jesus or the world’s way. You must make a choice. The world leads to destruction; but Jesus died so you could be forgiven. Your decision effects your eternity. I pray you choose Jesus today. 

Blessings,

Message: Playing with Fire: Is Hell Real?

Is hell real? Is hell eternal?  Is hell necessary? We must declare, in a loving and truthful way, what God has said. We must speak the truth even when it is not popular. Jesus said, “Wide is the gate” that leads to destruction and ‘narrow is the gate” which leads to life (Matthew 7:13-14 NKJV). Many people are doomed to hell and don’t know it. How selfist it is to have the Good News and not share it. 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.- John 14:6 NKJV

Are you playing with fire? Each person must make a decision about Heaven and hell. Those who die rejecting Jesus Christ live for eternity in hell. Jesus came and died on the cross so you and I could be forgiven. God made an escape, but it is useless if you don’t accept it. So what must you do to go to Heaven? It’s simple. Trust on the Lord Jesus Christ. What must you do to go to hell? Nothing. I pray you choose Jesus!

Blessings,

Message: Grace Changes Everything

First of all, we need to understand what grace is and what grace is not. It’s not what we do that saves us. It’s what Jesus did on the cross that saves us. God does not relate to us based on our goodness. He relates to us based on HiS grace. Apart from grace we cannot know God. Apart from grace we cannot understand God, and apart from grace we cannot relate to God. Grace changes everything. It’s more than we deserve and greater than we imagine!

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. – Ephesians 2:8-9 NIV

Why is grace so amazing? It’s amazing because we may differ in our nature in the extent of our sinfulness, but there is absolutely no difference between the best or worst of us. Scripture says “for all have sinned.” Grace is what we need but don’t deserve. Without Jesus, we deserve separation from God for eternity. Everyone will spend eternity somewhere. If you were to die today and stand before God and He asked, “Why should I let you in My heaven?” What would you say?

Have you received God’s grace? God is offering you grace today.

Blessings,

Testimony by Sharon Perkins, FRYSC Coordinator

Message: Conviction and Confidence

Psalm 25 reminds us that we can look forward to tomorrow (verses 1-3), we can forget about yesterday (verse 7), and we can make the most of today (verses 4-5)!  We are on a journey together and God wants us to be like His Son.
