"Christianity is Reality" the theme for 2020 here at the Church of Christ, which meets in Brookfield, IL. Each month lessons have supported that compelling truth. In June begins six lessons ending July 12th, looking at the Reality, 'All Have Sinned."
Everyone considers themselves good people. We all have a standard of who we think is right and who is not. Reality is that our goodness pales in comparison to God. Our righteousness falls completely short of His character and being.
Sin is like a virus affecting the whole world. Without discrimination, "All Have Sinned," requiring a remedy. A cure before it becomes too late, and we die in our sins. Jesus is that remedy; He is the cure for what ails humankind. The Bible, His revelation speaks to humankind's healing.
Following that revelation, we will learn all about the virus of sin. Not only does God's Word teach us that truth, but it also prepares us for how to deal with it. Even in times of distress, there is proper conduct that is pleasing to God. It is our prayer that man will find himself operating in God's truth.
The Reality, "All Have Sinned," should cause preparedness in man to avoid the virus of sin best we can. Hear the Word that straightens out our crooked path.
Make plans now to join us every opportunity you must take in this knowledge revealed to us to navigate Reality. Check our website for scheduled lessons.
Make it your Reality to live following God's Word and revelation. Hear and follow His ways will give us all the best possible lives.
