All Things Relate to Jesus
Colossians tells us that all things hold together through Jesus. Because He is the center of all things we can find His reflection in all things. We can even look back thousands of years before his physical birth and see his reflection in the Garden of Eden.
3 Ways We Find Jesus in the Garden of Eden
Life Comes Through Jesus
Thousands of years of human history and one thing remains - life comes through Jesus. The Bible tells us Jesus is the way to life.The map is clear. Just like in the Garden of Eden, God clearly points out which tree brings life. We don't need to explore other avenues. You can email one of our pastors to learn more about following Jesus.
Will Jesus Be There When You Need Him
Is Jesus present in your life? When times get difficult and yo're in need of a miracle will Jesus be there for you? Will you be able to turn to Him when you need him most? The Bible tells the story of a great wedding party. In fact, the party was so big they literally ran out of wine. Desperate for help the host turned to Jesus who performed His first miracle. Graciously, He turned water into wine and the party continued.
It Started With An Invitation
It's easy to focus on the miracle but let's look at what preceded it.
John 2:1-2 says, "
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me." Jesus is looking for an invitation into your life. He wants to be with you. He wants to be at your party. Quite simply, He wants to be your provision and turn your water into wine. Jesus wants to bring joy into your life and the first step is to invite Him in.
Jesus is waiting to come into your life. You may have messed things up but He already paid the penalty for your mistakes. That's what the gospel is all about. It's the good news that He paid the penalty for your screw ups and you're now free to invite Him into your life. All that's required on your part is to trust the payment that He made, invite Him to lead your life and start following His lead. Without the invitation there is no miracle. The invitation changes everything.
