For 60 hours we have been reading the Old Testament with the catalogue of man’s rebellion and failure in the face of God’s compassionate, unfailing love.
But tonight, at 9:40pm it all changes as we begin to read the New Testament.
The Good News of Jesus bursts in.
Walk along the candle-lit path towards the welcoming glow of St Michael’s. Join your church family to hear the Jesus story that has been told there for 1000 years – that God loves us!
The Good News is for you, for us, for everyone.
This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him. John 3:16-18 The Message
