ss eslieve Six-year-old Amy came home from school one day and said, “Mommie, the boy I really like told me he didn’t like me anymore. He hurt my feelings and made me cry.”
Who of us hasn’t felt the painful sting of rejection? Maybe it came from a sibling we once felt close to, or a close neighbor, or even from our spouse who we have committed our very heart and life to. Hurtful words or an unexpected betrayal can quickly sour our deeply held emotions and give way to agonizing sorrow. Heartache knows no boundaries and the same rejection little Amy experienced from this young boy touches us all at least once. During these painful seasons, we might ask: “Why me, Lord?”
When reading the Bible, God’s magnificent love letter to us all, we get a better understanding about heart-break and loss. It also reveals His longing desires to meet all our needs; being compassionate toward our weaknesses and frailties. Because we are born with a sinful nature, however, we are separated from a righteous and holy God. “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” ~Romans 3:23
Here’s the Good News! In God’s incredible love and mercy, He sent His Son Jesus into the world to pay the penalty for the sins of us all. Jesus came to this earth as the spotless, sinless, perfect Man and sacrificed His life on the cross to satisfy God’s righteous demands. He was then buried, but on the third day, God raised Him from the dead. Jesus is now alive again and is seated in Heaven as the God of all eternity. When we put our faith in Him, we are given the assurance of everlasting life and He promises to stay with us and sustain us in all circumstances. There is no greater hope for mankind!
If you have never done so before, you can accept Jesus as your Savior right now. Admit to God that you are a sinner in need of His forgiveness and that you believe Jesus died for your sins. He promises, “All who believe in Jesus will be saved.” He then turns our soiled, human heart into a purified, cleansed one. You can pray using words like these:
“Dear God, I admit I am a sinner and need your forgiveness. Thank you for sending Jesus to suffer the punishment I deserve for my sins. I believe Jesus is the Son of God. Thank You for Your gift of Eternal Life. Amen.”

Church Tonight has gatherings once a week for Bible study, prayer and one-on-one mentoring.

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. Once salvation is received, the Holy Spirit provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and daily guidance.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all men by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory. He is alive and well today and wants to be intimately involved in our lives. He is returning soon for His church.
Salvation is a free gift from God to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin’s penalty.
