“He wants not only us but everyone saved, you know, everyone to get to know the truth we’ve learned: that there’s one God and only one, and one Priest-Mediator between God and us — Jesus, who offered himself in exchange for everyone held captive by sin, to set them all free.” 1 Timothy 2:4 The Message

What does God want for you…? (4)

… HE wants you to know(intimately) and trust(deeply) in his rescuing truth. … HE wants you to be free: free from sin’s ownership of you .. free from sin’s empty promises .. free from sin’s imprisoning grip. … HE wants your life to be an “extraordinary Message of God’s powerful plan”:  Yes … Your life! …  You can try to live life on your own. You may even try another “plan” that someone else said worked for them .. but .. there is only One who is the Saving One. There is only One who fills the “space” between God and you.  Will you let Him “stand” in the uneven places of your life. Will you let His life be “exchanged” for yours? Will you trust the rescuing gift of Jesus today? What does God want? … everyone … saved … trusting … rescued … and proclaiming  God’s most powerful plan available today! It only takes a moment…

“It’s news I’m most proud to proclaim, this extraordinary Message of God’s powerful plan to rescue everyone who trusts him, starting with Jews and then right on to everyone else! Romans 1:16 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
