For no matter how many promises God has made,
they are “Yes” in Christ.
2 Corinthians 1:20
Jesus. God’s Yes
Yes… to a hurting world wondering if He still cares.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. …”
John 3:16 ESV
Yes… to the sinner wondering if there is any forgiveness.
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9 ESV

Yes… to the diseased wondering if there is healing to be had.
He sent out his word and healed them,
and delivered them from their destruction.
Psalm 107:20 ESV
Yes… to the lost wondering if anyone is looking for them.
“…For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”
Luke 19:11 ESV
No matter the promise… no matter the need… Jesus is the answer.
A great big YES.
What promise of His are you relying on?
You’ll find the Yes in Jesus.
Father God, thank You for the YES in Christ Jesus.
In Him You do not tell me No. In Him I can rest assured
that all Your promises will be fulfilled.

He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all,
how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
Romans 8:32 ESV
