Open Q: What does it take for most people to take hold of His amazing grace? What did it take for you?
Main Point: For God so Loved the World! His great and powerful love is to be involved in your life and give us undeserved Salvation for eternity and hope for today! Our life is timeless; we are made for eternity, and we can have a good and purposeful life now!
What does this mean? Jesus did all the work; all we just reach out and take hold of His hand, miraculous grace! The main point and purpose of Jesus Christ is not to condemn, but rather to save. When we realize this, we can trust Him, we can be saved, and He will not allow us to be condemned.
