It the pleasure and joy of Grace Church along with many other churches and believers in the US to partner with Coco Bertin and CJARC to show the love of Christ to you.
We would not really love you if we only gave white canes and not the good news of the gospel.
The good news of the gospel is that you don't need eyes to possess the greatest treasure or to experience the deepest joy in life.
Listen to what the Apostle Peter says to the believers in Asia Minor.
Though you have not seen him, you love him, though now you do not see him, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory.
Peter has just written to these believers about God's mercy...
About new life
About an enduring hope...
About an eternal inheritance...
All of this because Jesus died and rose again.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is God's declaration that he accepts the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for our sins.
Peter had seen Jesus with his physical eyes but the people to whom he writes had never seen him.
Yet, they loved him and found inexpressible joy in him.
You don't need physical sight to experience this love and inexpressible joy.
On September 10,1970 I heard and believed the gospel and received the greatest treasure and deepest joy in Jesus Christ.
I have not seen Jesus with physical eyes but I know him, and I love him, and I rejoice in him.
I love him because he first loved me.
I love him because he will not stop loving me even though he knows the worst about me.
I love him because
He suffered and died in my place.
I find deep joy in him because He has forgiven all my sins
... He walks with me through all the difficulties of life
... He gives me hope and peace in the midst of the storms in life.
... He is preparing a place for me in a perfect world that will never end.
This great treasure and deep joy is not found in physical healing or prosperity, it is only found in Jesus Christ.
You don't need eyes to know and experience this great love.
You don't need eyes to experience this inexpressible joy.
But, You do need faith.
Faith to believe God's promise that in Jesus Christ you can possess the greatest treasure and the deepest joy.
And the good news is that this great treasure and deep joy in Jesus can be yours today. Right now.
Would you bow your hearts before God with me and pray this prayer with me.
Father, I believe that Jesus Christ died in my place. I repent of my sins. I submit to Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I want him to be my greatest treasure and deepest delight. Thank you for loving me and giving me new life in Jesus Christ.
Please leave here today knowing that in Jesus Christ you possess the greatest treasure and deepest joy.
