Connecting to the Purposes of God
Above all, the LORD desires a relationship with us. The One who created us and sustains us seeks to redeem us and reconcile us to Himself. It is not by our efforts or good deeds; it is by faith that we accept the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ which covers over our sin that separates us from God. By accepting the completed sacrifice of Jesus, we are able to enter into God's presence and abide with Him and He with us. Praying to receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we receive God's Riches At Christ's Expense ... it is an act of GRACE, God's undeserved favor. He loved us first!
