What's Britain's goal?

What’s our particular goal as a society?  What are we focused on and aiming for?

Political stability?  Economic security and prosperity?  Personal happiness or contentment?

Or is our goal love
 
Love means to seek the best for all others, at whatever cost to myself.
 
If anything other than love is our goal, we will experience weakness, disappointment, and ultimately the collapse of our hopes - because only love can fulfil and sustain a person or even a society.
 
If love is our goal, it can only be found in God.  He is love. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights (James 1:17)
 
The Bible tells us that God didn’t spare his own Son  - but freely gave Him up for us all.  And in turn, his Son Jesus freely gave up His life for us all.  He did this to bring us into the love of God the Father, who, if we turn to Him, transforms us by the power of his Holy Spirit so that we can too love with his love.  
 
Will you open your heart up to God through Jesus Christ? 
 
Will you allow him to transform your heart so that your highest goal is love - His love; and so that He can give you the power to love like He does?  

A Free Gift

 The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.   (Romans 6:23)

You work for your wages.  They're what you deserve.  

 

Many people think that heaven is for people who have managed to be really good.  

 

But we’ve all done wrong too; we’ve all sinned.  We can never be good enough to earn heaven.

 

The good news is that eternal life isn’t something you can earn.  It’s a free gift.

 

Jesus paid for it when he died on the cross for us.  And He gives it to us as a free gift.

 

Will you put your trust in Jesus and receive His gift of eternal life today?  He will send His Holy Spirit to live in you, and you will be forever changed.


Britain's Young People

We teach our young people to despair - because we tell them life is ultimately meaningless.

We teach them overwork or apathy - because we tell them life is all about success and reputation.

We teach them confusion and brokenness - because we tell them love is all about getting what you want.

Isn’t it time for a change? 

They must find out that they are valuable – created by a loving God with meaning and purpose.

They must find out that He loves them regardless of their success or failure.

They must find out that the most precious thing in life is loving relationship – starting with knowing God Himself!

They must find out that love involves seeking the best for others regardless of the cost to me.  That’s how God loves us.

It’s time for a change.  We can’t teach what we haven’t learnt ourselves.  We must start by getting back to God.  He’s the source of meaning, purpose, value, life and love.  

Jesus has made the way back to God.  He died in our place so our wrongdoing could be forgiven and its power over our life broken.  He rose from the dead and, if we ask Him,  sends His Spirit to change us so we can live, so we can love, so we can know the God who loves us so much.

Step into His arms today.


The Ancient Paths

 The Lord says, "Stand at the crossroads and look, and ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." (Jeremiah 6:16)

Do you feel that your life is at a crossroads?  Are you wondering how to go forward; which way to take? Do you find yourself wishing there was a solid, secure, trustworthy path to go forward on? 

Indeed there is! The Bible describes it as 'the ancient paths'.  These paths are ancient because they are from the eternal God himself. They are reliable and have stood the test of time.  They are the 'good way' because God himself is good.  It's only on this 'good way' that you will find real rest for your soul.

So don't hesitate, and don't push the questions aside.  Ask for the ancient paths.  Ask where the good way is, so that you can walk in it.  As you do so, you will discover that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that in Him you will find rest for your soul.
