Why the most important page?
Because Jesus Christ our Lord is here -- right now. The very Lord of everything that ever was. is and ever will be is here, on this page. He is asking you -- yes, you -- to come to Him, to believe that He is exactly what He said He is. He is ready to give you absolutely everything you need - and much more, more than you can imagine.
Because what this part of the website talks about is eternal. The rest of the website is for now. This part is forever. And so are you.
Because what is seen is not the most important, not the most real. What is unseen is what really counts. What is spiritual is more real than the chair you are sitting in or the display you are reading this from.
Because you hurt, deep inside, and outside too. Because you lack something, and you know you lack that something. That perhaps vague dissatisfaction with your life. Or perhaps that ache, that itch, that pain, than feeling of being incomplete and not full ...
Because you are hungry, and want to feed on food that sustains forever.
Pascal once said every person has a God-shaped hole inside, just waiting to be filled. God is waiting for you to invite Him to fill that hole. DO IT NOW! He's waiting and watching for you.
The aim of this website, and our constant prayer, is that you welcome Jesus Christ into your life, realizing who He is and why He came.
We are all trying to live as best we can. But we don't measure up to God's standards, we know it, you know it. We need to be rescued from the death penalty for making a real mess of our life, for our sins. We can't rescue ourselves, but need someone who saves us from our deadly situation. Each of us needs to welcome Jesus into our life. We need to turn our back on living "my way" to living "God's way". The only way!
We are not trying to get you to join Grace Lutheran Church. Sure, we'd like to have you worship with us as a visitor or member. But your relationship with Jesus Christ is what's really important. to you and to us. To God. Important for all eternity.
We all have a gift in this rescuer, this Savior, this Jesus. What gift? We get to spend eternity with Him in heaven, in His very presence. And it doesn't cost us anything -- it's totally free! Yes, it cost God, but He willingly paid the cost, because He loves us.
If we don't accept Jesus rescue of us, if we turn our back on Him, we will spend eternity apart from God. And they don't call this HELL for nothing!
Because He loved us, we love Him. And we, in thankfulness for His salvation, love others. We try hard to do what He tells us to do - show His love to all people.
