Connecting to God's Love

Description

A life filled with confusion and doubts and fears is not what God wants for you. He wants to clear away these things in your life, and he does so by connecting you to his great love for you.

Hear

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down ones life for ones friends (John 15:13).

Believe

The first issue I address with someone struggling to live the Christian life is the forgiveness of their sins. Most often, that is where the problem lies. A life filled with confusion and doubts and fears is not what God wants for you. He wants to clear away these things in your life, and he does so by connecting you to his great love for you.

Its at the cross we see this love in action. As Miroslav Volf, a theology professor at Yale, wrote in his book Free of Charge, “God is the God who forgives.Jesuss act of grace through death brings this forgiveness to our hearts.

Let me ask you. Do you know that God has forgiven your sins? Or do you have a 95/5 view of forgiveness—being 95% sure of forgiveness and 5% doubt that all of your sins have been forgiven? Do you long to know, to be 100% sure, of Gods forgiveness?

The gospel proclaims that you can know and experience Gods forgiveness. What you are looking for is found in Christs finished work on the cross.

Live

If you want to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ and experience his love, the cross is the place to start. That all-important question, Will God forgive my sin?is answered in the death of Jesus Christ. The good news is that by grace you were made alive together with him. You have the life of Jesus Christ in you. Forgiveness frees you to live that new life to the full.
