Impact Youth Ministry exist to share the way of Jesus with our friends and family, to show them His love and to grow passionate followers of God who seek to worship Him with their whole lives.
Our small group at church has been reading through the book of 1 John together and I just wanted to pass this passage on to you all.
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.
Propitiation means – ‘A sacrifice that bears God’s wrath and turns it to favour’. If we turn to him, Jesus truly is the one who bears our failings so that God’s favour will rest on us for eternity.
A few things to draw your attention to:
