Jesus: His person and work
An answer to all that’s wrong
A quick look at the daily news will tell you that something is wrong with the world. War, social upheaval, domestic violence, sickness, poverty, abuse, and death – all scream at us that this world is a mess. The Bible tells us that it all began with disobedience to God at the dawn of human history. We are at war with our Creator and His purposes.
Is there any solution? Yes, absolutely. Jesus Christ is the Man in whom all the fullness of God dwelt. He came to reconcile all things to Himself, to put right everything that was wrong. The final unfolding of His victory is yet to come. Trust Him now and know Him as Savior and Redeemer.
For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
