As we've traveled to fairs and events around the region, giving away hundreds of carnival prizes, we've had just one parent decline to accept our free gift. Hundreds of parents have said "yes!" to the prizes we've given away. Our winnings have become their children's joy for that day and it was absolutely free with no strings attached.
Jesus offers a much better gift - eternal life - which is absolutely free. You don't have to do anything, you can't get the gift by being good or going through any rituals. You simply accept it.
At our church the terminology is saying "Yes!" to Jesus.
Saying 'YES!' to Jesus can change your life forever, and God welcomes us to ask questions and discover for ourselves His plan to bring us back into relationship with Him through His Son. Trusting Him to lead and direct your life is the most important decision you will ever make!
This is Pastor Tom at our church in Big Lake, Riverside Church. Here's how he puts it.
WHAT'S MY NEXT STEP?
If you would like to say 'YES!' to Jesus, we invite you to let us know though our Contact form. We'll put you in touch with those who'd love to help and pray with and for you. They will help by also sending you what they call a 'YES!' packet below which further explains your decision to follow Jesus.
Through it all, through the acts of kindness we do or you do, this is ultimately our purpose. Being salt and light in our world is only done through and for Jesus because He is the Light of the World.
Jesus said: "“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me."
Note: The We Heart Kindness website is not connected to Riverside Church or managed by the church in any way. We use the video to help you understand what saying "Yes" means. There are many wonderful churches in your area. Seek one out that believes and teaches the Bible as it's written.
