Near, part 1: No Failure

Consequences of our missteps hurt. But, they are not our King’s rebuke. We may have failed but we are not failures. Many of us….more accurately….every one of us has been overwhelmed by stress and are afraid of failure. It’s what keeps some of us from risking anything significant. We play it safe. We find it difficult to move because, …..”What if….?” We never have to be afraid that God will bite our heads off for trying and screwing up. In his kingdom, success is sure, and his approval is secure.

From Series: "Near"

This TOTAL 7-week series is centered on the idea that God comes near. He came near. He is near. Our God is a God of connection. He will not allow sin to ultimately separate Him from His people. Jesus’ declaration that launched His public ministry in Mark’s account of the Gospel...14Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, 15and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand;e repent and believe in the gospel.” Mark 1:14-15 is now finding its ultimate validation as Jesus makes His way to the cross. Here He closes the gap. The chasm that exists between God and man, will be bridged. As Calvary comes NEAR, we also get a glimpse of the victory song of EASTER, and rejoice in our own resurrection knowing the reality of an ever-present God for all eternity. Alleluia! Alleluia!
