Harry Reader at the Campus Outreach Milwaukee New Years Conference
Harry Reeder begins his first message of the conference with a thorough explanation of the gospel. Drawing from several verses from the book of Romans, we learn that our sin nature renders us helpless, as our sin record makes us hopeless. Harry emphasizes the key factor that distinguishes Christianity from all other religions - that hope is found in nothing and no one else but God himself through Jesus Christ.
Using a passage from Romans 8, God’s sovereignty in our salvation is clear - it is foreknown by God as he predestines, calls, justifies, and glorifies us through the life, death, and resurrection of his son Jesus Christ. Ultimately, it is God who initiates to us and draws us to himself. Contrary to every other religion, Christianity is rooted in the fact that God came down to us through Jesus, lived and died for us, so that we could have new life in a right relationship with him.
