THE PROBLEM JESUS CAME TO SOLVE  info@gateway61.org


Jesus Christ's free gift is…Aliveness.  The essence of being fully alive.  Fully present and potent, engaged and engaging.  How much life do you contain?

 Talk to God and ask Him…"Dear God, in my heart I know the truth about Jesus.  I know He is Your Son and that He died for me and rose from the dead.  I confess I need a Saviour and I receive Jesus’ gift right now.  Help me to follow You."

Jesus did not come to make bad people good...
He came to make dead people alive!

John 10:10 (MSG)  6-10 Jesus told this simple story, but they had no idea what he was talking about. So he tried again. “I’ll be explicit, then. I am the Gate for the sheep. All those others are up to no good—sheep stealers, every one of them. But the sheep didn’t listen to them. I am the Gate. Anyone who goes through me will be cared for—will freely go in and out, and find pasture. A thief is only there to steal and kill and destroy. I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.

 

Christianity is an essential and eternal change in the nature of your being, resulting from God's Spirit entering your soul, and allowed by your surrender to His desire to do so. This is called being "born again"

This transformation on the inside is usually followed by an outgrowth of that change, gradually resulting in new and healthier thoughts and ultimately behaviors. 
(1 Cor 6)

The issue is more about our willingness to surrender to an ongoing transformation process of God's Life growing in us than it is appropriately answering the question about knowing what is good and what is evil.


Stop trying to define people's essential nature by looking at a present snapshot of one area of their life. We are all in process.
