Bachelorette party turns into mission trip: How social media is changing the way we experience reality

0

Six months ago, Rikki Kahley of Macon, Georgia, planned a bachelorette party for herself and her friends, booking a September 12 trip to the Bahamas. After Hurricane Dorian devastated the islands, they chose to make their party a mission trip.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
