In Christianity, Jesus Christ is a big deal. And here at Living Faith, it's all about Jesus Christ and what He did for me and you to recocile us back to God!
God chose to send His only son to live on this earth as a real man. He was 100% God, and 100% man and his name was Jesus. He lived on this earth for only a short period of time. At the age of 30, he entered into his minstry as His custom was and by the age of 33, He had impacted 12 disciples and more with His radical teacing of freedom, grace, forgiveness, overcoming and power. Jesus didn't come and just talk a good talk. He gave us an awesome example on how to live our lives. Jesus tells us in John 10:10 that He has come to give us life and life abundantly and we can expereince that right here on earth if we live for Jesus the way He lived for us. He wants us to expereince life, not just life, but life abundantly.
Jesus died in a way that one would not have forseen coming as a King and God of the Universe He was spit upon, whipped, slapped, hit, tortued and pierced. He suffered the worst death anyone could have experienced and He did it all for you. Jesus paid the full price. He accomplished something that none of us could have done, He paid the penalty for sin and reconciled us back to God the Father. None of us are or have been perfect in our own strength but through Jesus Christ, we are being made perfect in God's eyes. We will continue to make mistakes and fall, but every time we make a mistake, and every time we fall, Jesus Christ is right there telling us to get back up; Give it to Me!; and becomes our advocate before the Father in Heaven.
We can't expalin how He did it, but we know that Jewish History tells us that this is true. Real people who walked along side of Him, seen Him crucified and resurected from the dead believed it to be true. They believed it so much tha they gave up their life for Him. WE believe it to be true as well.
If you don't believe that to be true, that's OK and we hope someday you will. Until then, we invite you to learn a little more about Him everytime you come and visit us at Living Faith.
