>Remember the Greatness of the Gift of the Gospel


“God requires two things of us: punishment for our sins and perfection in our lives. 
Our sins must be punished, and our lives must be righteous. 
But we cannot bear our own punishment, and we cannot provide our own righteousness. 
Therefore, God, out of His immeasurable love for us, provided his own Son to do both. 
Christ bears our punishment, and Christ performs our righteousness. 
And When we receive Christ, all of his punishment and all of his righteousness is counted as ours.”

– John Piper

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."

  1. >sessem"It is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous." Rom. 2:13I think you need to find out what this law is since it has been added to the law after Jesus' crucifixion. Theodore A. Jones
