PRE-ORDER DR. YOUSSEF’S NEW BOOK

In the midst of political unrest, a global pandemic, and economic uncertainty, you may ask, "Where is God in all of this?" or, "How could a loving God allow this?" Whatever you may be facing, God provides clarity and hope in His Word, the Bible.

If today were your last day on earth, would you be absolutely certain that you would be in heaven with Jesus?

OUR HOPE IN SUFFERING: THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL

The Bible is the only text that provides a comprehensive reason for the suffering we face in this life. The good news is that it also provides the solution: a God who gives us peace and comfort in this life—and the promise of an eternity spent with Him where there will be "no more death or mourning or crying or pain" (Revelation 21:4).

This is a summary of the Gospel message in just 100 words:

  • When Adam and Eve believed Satan's lie, sin and suffering entered the world. (Genesis 3)
  • As a result, we experience sickness, evil, tragedies, and death. (Romans 6:23a)
  • But God has provided a way for you to experience abundant life through His Son, Jesus. (John 10:9-10.)
  • Jesus lived without sin and died on the cross so you could experience eternal life with Him in heaven, where there will be no sin, death, or pain. (Revelation 21:4)
  • When you receive the gift of salvation through Christ, you can rest assured that no suffering in life will have the final say. (Romans 8:28)

 

If today were your last day on earth, would you be absolutely certain that you would be in heaven with Jesus?

Today, God is inviting you to come to Him.
