*~Bending under the weight of His mercies~*

The God Who created everything there is, is also rich in mercy and love
towards us. But man’s sinfulness has separated us from God.Sin is missing
the mark of being 100% holy as God is holy—His will for us. God
demonstrated His love by becoming like us, only perfectly, living, walking,
teaching, healing, among us, and then dying publicly and finally rising
from the dead 3 days later. This sacrificial death PAID for our sins and
CREDITS us with His righteousness when we believe in Him and what He did. By
100% relying on Messiah’s work and not our own good deeds, He saves us and
gives us eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the Gift of God
is eternal life through Jesus the Lord.Would you accept this Jesus into
your life and His forgiveness of your sin?
