Crucifixion was a brutal, terrible act of violence that Jesus was willing to endure because of His love for us and our salvation. He died victoriously and paid our price in full!
Passionate Love Rated R

Jesus wants our hearts. He loves us so much that he was willing to die for us. He was beaten, bruised, broken, and bloodied to the point of being unrecognizable. He experienced this all for us. He was despised and rejected as he bore our griefs and carried our sorrows. He was wounded and bruised for us, and by His stripes, we are healed! Our Lord reigns!

Jesus came to earth to bear the witness of truth. He IS The Way, The Truth, and The Life. The sheep hear His voice in the crowd as He calls us to His eternal kingdom. He is the Passover lamb that was sacrificed in our place out of abounding love. When you hear His voice, answer.
The Great "I AM"
March 27, 2022 • Bill Gehm • John 17:24—18:24
Liar, lunatic, or The Almighty God? Christ is the great "I AM" who takes away the sins of the world. He loved us even when we were his enemy and was willing to go to the cross for us. In the garden of Gethsemane (oil press) Christ was was being pressed and crushed to the point of sweating blood. The Father's grace saved us from ourselves. Jesus' greatest desire is for us to be with him... He wants to show us His glory.
In Trouble with the World.. Why Do People Hate Us?

Just after Jesus taught us that we should love one another and that we need to be connected to Him, He lays a big one on us! The world is going to HATE you! But he tells us this so that we know the truth. It's not easy to follow Christ. Trust Him and His Holy Spirit!
