We all connect with someone or something in this life. Whether it's family, friends,
career, or hobbies, everyone can name some focal point for living. Here at Cross Roads Baptist, our interest is helping
you make the most important connection of all, with God. Why God? It's simple:
He loves you, and longs to be at the center of your life. Unfortunately, in our
natural state it's utterly and completely impossible for us to be in that kind
of relationship with Him. Strong words? You bet, but it's the truth.
Our natural inclination is to disobey God. When we do, it's called sin.
The natural result of sin is eternal separation from God, which is just the opposite
of what He wants for us, and there's where He takes the initiative on our behalf.
God's only son was Jesus. He walked this earth just like we do. He experienced
the passions of life just like we do. He was just like us in all respects, except
one...he never sinned. Ever. That made him the only one in the universe qualified
to pay off our debt before God. He willingly gave up his life to allow us to
have a relationship with his Father, and all he asks in return is for us is to
connect with him.
Fortunately, that IS simple to do. Start by Agreeing with God that you're disobedient, then Believing that Jesus is who he said he is, and finally by Confessing your intent to honor Him with your life. It's like A-B-C, and it's
the truth. What is the truth? You'll find it in Jesus' own words: "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through
me." There's the connection.

crossroads of life.

Give glory to God for His miraculous healing hand in the life of Anthony. His
recovery continues to amaze the surgeons who treated him. He'll need prayer for
one more treatment. Pray for his family and the doctors who will treat him.
