Love.

Love.

One small word.

So much power.

"For God so loved the world..."

When I read about Jesus as an eighteen year old boy... It was the love I saw in His life... In the way He treated people... In the way He spoke to people... How He differentiated Himself from the religious elite of His time and opened His arms to the poor, tax collectors, prostitutes, the disenfranchised...

That love just drew me in. It changed my life. It is still changing lives.

Jesus Saves

He saves people.

He saved me.

He has a plan and it includes the salvation of millions upon millions of people.

When you are a young Christian, you believe that you are going to save the world. Than 20 years go by and you end up hoping you can at least save yourself.

Well, that's not where we are supposed to end up. Jesus is every bit the Savior today that He has been throughout history. The One who saved Saul of Tarsus on that dusty road to Damascus is the One that has the power to save our unfriendly neighbors, our disagreeable coworkers, and our unavoidable in-laws.

People will be saved!

Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.
