News of Great Joy


God is Love…so what is there to fear?

(Listen to my song “I Will Give You Rest” by clicking HERE)


John 6:37-38

“Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me, because I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me.”


Re-read these words of Jesus several times.

These are words of great hope and comfort. Jesus said that he will not reject anyone who comes to him.

We find this hard to believe because when we do wrong to others…they usually do reject us. And isn’t that our reaction when someone does wrong to us?

How “conditional” is our fickle love!

But “God is Love” (1 John 4:8). Our Creator’s love is unconditional.

Where are you broken?

What have you done that you regret or think is unforgivable?

What is afflicting you with inner turmoil?

While most people likely think these are the things that God despises in us…they are actually the places where God wants to embrace us, heal us and make us whole.

These are the places where we can’t do it on our own…the places where we need God.

The risen Christ wants to show you the Unconditional Love of God.

Accept it.

Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

The most incredible Love…is true.
