Jon's preaching spoke on II Corinthians chapter 5 where Paul talks about the gospel being the exchange God offers each person. He exchanges our sinful selves with the righteousness of Jesus making it possible for us to be saved. We all know we aren't good people but the number one answer to "If God were to ask you why he should let you into heaven, what would you say?" in these surveys we will be doing this week is: "because I try to be a good person." At least this is what we've found at all the Universities where the Great Exchange has been hosted in the states and also in the surveys Alan and I have done here with our teams in Heidelberg. Jesus took our sin, the wages of which were death, and he died on the cross so that we could live - not just after death in Heaven but also experience real life here on earth. That's the gospel. Jon shared his testimony of coming to Christ, investigating his claims and recognizing He was the only way we can come to have a relationship with God. Despite what this relativistic world tries to tell you, there is no other way. Everyone seemed to enjoy the message and we had good turnouts at both churches.
Here are some pictures from the day:
