Reading through the articles in this volume of Via, we hope that you will be able to clearly see that you are at the centre of Godâ€™s attention.
He loves you with a powerful love! God loves you so much that He sent His Son to be your Substitute. We have all sinned and sin earns the penalty of death. God is absolutely fair but He is going to judge sin. Because He is also a God of mercy, He has presented a way of escape. God provided the Saviour, His Son, who came between us who are guilty and God who demands justice. He provided the way of escape from sin. The Lord Jesus took the punishment for our offenses so that we could live free from sinâ€™s control. No matter what you may have done, He can liberate you â€“ even from your addictions. He wants to be your Lord and Saviour!
The article â€œSheepâ€ helps us to picture the Lord Jesus as a caring and loving Shepherd. He is seeking for you. Once you call out to the Shepherd, He will bring you into His fold and never let you go! There is no peace like the peace we know when we are right with God. Eternity is real â€“ are you ready?

When the Party is Over
