Whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life

In our February 5, 2023 worship service, we held a memorial for our dear Sister Flo who passed away on New Year’s Day at the age of 90.  People shared memories from Flo’s life as we rejoiced in the fact that she, as God’s child (by grace through faith), is with Jesus in a place the Scripture says is “far better”than we can imagine (Phil. 1:23; 1 Cor. 2:9-10, etc.).  We looked also briefly at 2 Corinthians 5:1-8 and the hope Christians have in the resurrection from the dead.  Today, we “walk by faith” knowing “mortality [one day] will be swallowed up in life” for those that know Jesus (2 Cor. 5:4b, 7; 1 Cor. 15, etc.).  Indeed, as Christians now, “we… groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the… redemption of our body” which will happen when the Lord returns for us (Rom. 8:23b; 1 John 3:2, 1 Pet. 1:13, etc.).  But in the meantime, we also carry the message of God’s “good news” (i.e. the Gospel) to the world- not wanting any to “perish” knowing “there will be a resurrection both of the just and the unjust” (Matt. 28:19-20; 1 Cor. 15:3-4; Rom. 3:23; 2 Cor. 5:21; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15, etc.).  We do not want any to stand before God without his or her sins forgiven (John 14:6; Rev. 20:11-15, etc.). 

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

My passion is to protect and promote the truth, and teach others to do the same through the faithful teaching of the Bible.

Gospel means “good news.” While we can have good news throughout our lives in many forms, the good news God shares with us is the forgiveness of sin through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
