The gift of salvation and grace that was born into this world so long ago is available right here and right now, today. We now live under the New Testament covenant: what Jesus gave us with His life. The Old Testament covenant is done away with, Jesus fulfilled the prophecies as the Messiah, the Savior of Mankind, He came so that we could be free from our bondage to sin. “For He says, ‘In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you’” (written down by the prophet, Isaiah 49:8). “Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
How often do we place God in the friend zone? We put him in His corner for ourselves to go to when needed but never allow Him to be a part of all our thoughts and actions.
The greatest commandment calls us to do just that: heart, soul, and mind… that sounds like we are to allow God to flood our lives. This is love: when two become one.
In order to give hope to a world that is living without hope and lost in sin, we have got to follow where God is leading us. We need to think outside our building, we need to do what Jesus would do in order to carry the hope we have to a lost and hurting world. We must, Reach Out and take it to them!

Then you will experience God, then you will know Peace. Do you Trust Him, is your faith in Christ alone?
