Many of us who are parents often hear our children lament, “I’m hungry.” We prepare a meal or snack only to hear him say, “I don’t want that.” And so, he remains hungry. It is perplexing at best.
Ok, let’s be honest. I have looked in the refrigerator for something to eat because I was hungry and wanted to be satisfied. But after glancing over the conglomeration of food, rearranging items on the shelves, pulling out the drawers, and looking at the packed door compartments, I sigh, “There is nothing to eat.” It is perplexing at best.
God has provided the way for all people to be spiritually satisfied and be saved. But some say, “I don’t want that way.” And they remain spiritually unsatisfied. It is perplexing at best.
This weekend, we are continuing the series that you helped create: Glad You Asked. We will look at what God has provided as we answer the question, “Will only Christians go to Heaven?”
CURRENT SERIES: gLAD YOU ASKED
ICYMI – Pastor Ben continued the series, Glad You Asked, discussing the topic of baptism. We dove into the account of Pentecost in the book of Acts where Peter encourages people to “repent and be baptized”. Baptism is an incredible gift from God that connects us to Jesus and gives us the blessings of life and forgiveness (Acts 3:38). To read and watch the message, click here.
Coming Up This Weekend – Pastor Bill continues the series with a message about Heaven. To answer these questions, we’ll read Jesus’ words in the book of Luke where he explains the narrow door that must be entered to get to Heaven. You can join in on Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am at Victory, on our live stream site, or our YouTube channel.
