Our Substitute

If you are a Christian, there are three incredible pictures of what Jesus has done for you. Maybe you felt like a slave to your sin. You were created to live a free, joyful, burdenless life…but you were owned – forced to carry around the weight of your sin. As your substitute, Jesus paid the price for your freedom. When you gave your life to him, you were redeemed. Or perhaps you felt guilty and condemned. Like George Strait at heaven’s gate: “If they knew half the things I’ve done they’ll never let me in.” But God declared you righteous, because Jesus took the punishment you deserved. When you gave your life to him, you were justified. Or maybe you didn’t think much about these things and just lived your life doing what you pleased – making yourself happy as best you could. You probably never realized you were opposed to God, but you were. Even though you were his enemy, Jesus paid the price to bring peace. When you gave your life to him, you were reconciled.

From Series: "Reset"

One year ago, on March 15, 2020, church doors across the nation were shut. As we adapted to sheltering in place, many of us continued our worship online. Many more of us dropped out. In the course of the past year have you felt as though your day to day relationship with Christ is stuck on autopilot? Or maybe serving God has lost its luster as you sense it growing more going-through-the-motions and less meaningful. When it comes to your relationship with Jesus, have you lost the exciting and motivating first love you once enjoyed? In this sermon series, "Reset", Dr. Jim Mann shares the good news that what's been lost can be found. Join us as we restore the fire and conviction of your first love for Jesus as we learn His character, His glory, and His love for us.
