FROM THE PULPIT: We have received new life in Christ

Now, he carries that toy everywhere.

Bud transformed. He received new life. Before he met this family, he had very little to call his own. He received a warm place to sleep, a bed, a toy, food and water.

More importantly, he received the love and care of those who welcomed him into their home. He did nothing to earn it.

We have been given the same kind of opportunity as Bud.

We have received the gift of new life in Jesus Christ. We might think we don’t deserve it because of the way we have been treated in life.

But Jesus continuously reiterates we are worthy of his love.

We are worthy of new life.
