Freedom in Christ

Why is it that we often find it so hard to live the "life to the full" life which Jesus promised? I know for me that in the first few years of my Christian life it was that I was still being defined by my past failures and my old ways of thinking, rather than understanding who I now was in Christ. That the "Great Exchange" which took place when Christ took all my sin and brokenness and gave me his life in return (see Zec 3:3-4) wasn't just some theoretical exchange, but changed everything about who I was, how God saw me and how I needed to see myself.

I know no better way of getting that stuff into you than the "Freedom in Christ" course. If I had my way I'd make it compulsory for everyone who wants to be part of the Kerith community, just because I know it will do you so much good! The next course starts on Wednesday 22nd April. There are more details on our website, and there will be people in reception on Sunday next to the "Freedom in Christ" banner who can answer any questions you may have. If the cost of the course is a problem then just let us know as we don't want that to be a barrier to anyone coming along.

In an age dominated by people spending so much on self help books and courses, many of which are frankly nonsense, come along and get some concentrated truth into you!

Simon.
