Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

April 23, 2011 (the way of escape)

the way of escape

“Along with everybody on the face of the earth,
you are constantly sinful.
These thousands of sinful thoughts, words,
and actions cause the perfectly holy God
to judge you as deserving of hell.
But Christ’s death
in the place of sinful people,
as a true substitute,
provides the way of escape.
God pardons the one who comes to Him
because Jesus took the punishment in his place.
In simple terms we may say
that the just penalty for sins
either falls on you or Christ.”
- Jim Elliff

“He came to pay a debt He did not owe,
because we owed a debt we could not pay.”
- Author Unknown
