We at Helmers Street Baptist want to reach people.
But what if people don’t want to be reached? If you were drowning, you would want to be reached. If you were dangling, you would want to be reached. If you were falling, you would want to be reached. If you were lost in the dark, you would want to be reached.
But some people do not know that they are drowning, dangling, falling, lost. The world does it’s best to make people comfortable about their eternal soul. “Don’t worry.” “Plenty of time for that.” “Just a bunch of fairy tales.” “You’re not really that bad.”
John 3:18-20 tells us “he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.”
Jesus is the light of the world, and it is through faith in him that we avoid condemnation. He says in John 12:46, “I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”
We hope you believe the truth that Jesus came into a dark world of sin to save you and bring you into the light of his truth. If you would like to know more, please visit us on Sunday Morning at 10 a.m.
