John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." While many of us have a firm grasp on this incredible promise of God, we still can’t help but ask the question, why? Why did Jesus choose to take the punishment we rightly deserved? Today on Light of the Word, Pastor Steve takes this question to the scriptures to help us better understand the person and purpose of Jesus Christ. It comes out of Steve’s study through 1st Timothy.
The Normal Christian Life is Watchman Nee's great Christian classic unfolding the path of faith and presenting the eternal purposes of God in simple terms. Watchman Nee (1903 - 1972) is remembered for his leadership of an indigenous church movement in China as well as for the books that continue to enrich Christians throughout the world. Beginning in the 1930s, he helped establish local churches in China that were completely independent of foreign missionary organizations and were used to bring many into the kingdom ofGod.
