How it impacts us today
The same principle applies to us as to the people who lived in biblical times. Jesus healed the sick then, and there is healing for us now. He forgave the sins of all mankind so that includes us! We can have a fresh start. We can pray and be in relationship with Him. God speaks to us and we can know Him personally. All the blessing and fullness that is promised in the Word of God, is available for us here and now. We just have to invite Him into our lives. Through His people, the body of Christ, we declare He is the answer for a lost world. It is up to the men and women of God to share this message of faith, hope and love. This body of people, whose hearts desire is to see everyone find Salvation, grow in God, receive hope where there is none, find life and step into a purpose and plan that God has for every individual, is known as the Church. The importance of belonging to a church is fundamental to the Christian faith. We need the support of others in our lives to encourage and inspire us. To lift us when we’re down and to help guide and show direction to us when we loose our way.
