Have you ever felt like you needed a fresh start or new beginning? This weekend we take a look at the time when we realize we cannot do life on our own. Strength is not shown by doing everything ourselves. At times we need to ask for help. When we cry out for help, help comes. When we long for help, God has made a way. When we have been broken, our brokenness does not have the last word.
Yet, Help has a name: Jesus
“That is what happened in baptism. When we went under the water, we left the old country of sin behind; when we came up out of the water, we entered into the new country of grace—a new life in a new land! That’s what baptism into the life of Jesus means. “
Romans 6:3 (the message)
How is God turning your mess into a message of coming home?
