Stahr gave the message today. She talked about sharing Christ with others. Her example was someone saying they like Jesus and all, but they don’t like all the rules and things. Her scripture was Romans 8.
Romans 8: Therefore there is now no condemnation [no guilty verdict, no punishment] for those who are in Christ Jesus [who believe in Him as personal Lord and Savior]. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
She described God as being a good parent. Like are earthly parents who set boundaries for us with TV time and knowing where we were. This was because they loved us and wanted the best for us. God is the same way. True love is not just letting someone do whatever they want to do. Many times if left to just ourselves we will do the wrong thing. Love is helping someone be safe and a be a better human being.
She covered that Jesus took the blame for us because we could never live a perfect life. Jesus doesn’t bind us, He sets us free. He defeated death so we could live.
So you can now answer the question about all those Christian rules and such.
