Streetlight Beliefs Pt 4: The Return of Jesus, Salvation, Eternal Security, and Hell

May 1, 2024

2 Cor. 5:17 says; “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come!” When someone truly comes to Christ, they become brand new. The person they were before gets crucified on the cross. Why? Because Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life, was fully God and fully human, died, was buried, rose from the dead, ascended to the right hand of God the Father, and did it all because He wants to save your life. He wants to redeem you. He wants to use you. He’ll take you right where you are. He doesn’t care how much you’ve smoked, snorted, swallowed or shot up. He doesn’t care how many people you’ve had sex with. He doesn’t care who you’ve hurt or killed. He doesn’t care how many lies you’ve told and things you’ve stolen. He doesn’t care how many pounds of food you’ve consumed, how many hours you’ve laid around feeling sorry for yourself, or how much anxiety and fear you carry in your body. He says, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28)
