In this standalone message, Pastor Nate Gagne speaks about the events leading up to Jesus’ death and the reaction following it. Jesus came so that we could have life. He lived knowing he would be subject to death for the things we would do wrong. God sent Him in place of us to take our punishment. If we walk with Jesus, He can show us the path to life & keep us from the pitfalls that we can experience trying to walk without Him. In our darkest moments, He is the light Who keeps us from stumbling blindly in the dark. He went ahead of us & experienced the punishment for all of our missteps so that we wouldn’t have to. Continuing to stumble around blindly in the dark is a choice you can make, because Jesus will never force you to follow Him, but the path is so much more enjoyable when you decide to.
