The Gospel

There’s only one God.

The God of the Bible.

God is one spirit in three different persons, God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.


Everyone is born spiritually dead, and going to hell by default.

It doesn’t matter how good or bad of a person you are,

how you treat people,

how many prayers you say,

if you go to church,

if you’ve been baptized,

or if you believe in God.


There’s only two types of people in this world… There’s no Catholic, Jew, Muslim or atheist.

You’re either going to heaven or hell,

born again or spiritually dead,

a child of God or a child of the devil,

a servant of God or a slave to sin.
In order to be in a relationship with God, you must believe in your heart that Jesus is God, that He died for your sins and was raised again from the dead.

Then repent of your sins, tell God you’re sorry for offending Him and beg Him to come into your life.

If you do this from the bottom of your heart, you’ll be born again, have your sins forgiven and granted eternal life as I was on March 27th, 2012.

Becoming born again doesn’t sneak up on you. It changes all of your desires, motivations, priorities and it’s available to anyone at anytime!

We’re all sinners, but some have a savior.

The Least Of These.

A sermon I gave on 4/30/14 at PGM (Pacific Garden Mission), one of the largest homeless shelters in the country. Please pray that hearts would be softened!

 

 

I know you pretty much have to be here, but I still want to thank you for whatever attention you decide to pay me.

Before we get started, let me tell you a bit about myself.

My name is Justin Obriecht and my wife Tara and I started a homeless ministry a couple years ago called Wash and Worship.

My brother, who I dearly love, has been in prison for 12 years and gets out this fall.

My parents are divorced and so am I.

I’ve been broke and I’m currently wealthy.

I personally know pain and joy.

I personally know divorce, atheism, fornication, cheating, lying, stealing, womanizing and adultery.

I’ve been addicted to weed, porn and masturbation.

I know about half sisters that I’ve never met and wasn’t even aware of.

I don’t know hopelessness, but I’ve been around it enough to empathize with you.

 

 

But the most important thing to know about me, is that I’ve been saved from all that by Jesus Christ!

I was born again on March 27th 2012 after 20 years of antitheism.

Antitheism means not only did I not believe in God,

But I thought the idea of God was a tool used to manipulate the weak and vulnerable.

And I made it my mission to get people out of that deception.

But now I’m a child of God,

I have the Holy Spirit living inside of me,

I have a personal relationship with God through JC,

My sins have been forgiven, and I’m guaranteed to go to heaven and live forever.

Now that you know a little about me, will you please join me in prayer?

A Testimony, by Tara Obriecht

A Testimony

Lost in the world’s answers
Things we are made to believe
This kept me from His truth
With only empty answers to receive

Filling, filling, filling
But never being made full
Relationships, travel, drugs, sex, vanity, TV
Leaning into every tug and pull

Hurt came in
I lost my Dad and more
Hoping their actually was a God
I opened my skeptical heart to restore

Taken into a pushy church
Freshly broken I sat and twitched
No one really tried to connect
I was just something that needed to be fixed

Say the prayer
And become saved?
I left confused
In a daze

Christianity then
Became such a joke
Positive there was no God now
Just mirrors and smoke

Once again I thought of
A million ways to fill this empty space
Never expecting that God existed
Now I’m so thankful for His grace

Confidence near nothing
So many things I wanted to change
He had another plan
Instead of my body, my mind he rearranged

You can only control things up to a point
He taught me to let go
He took over so gently
Bit by bit, nice and slow

The truth visible, my eyes opened
Realizing God wanted a relationship with me
Questions I had He answered through His Word
Confirming this world isn’t all we have, He set me free

Everything here became so small
Worries started to melt away
This world is an illusion
I have to remind myself everyday

I don’t have religion
I have a relationship, a true love
I’m an alien here
A citizen of Heaven above

You get to decide but this life won’t be repeated
You can get caught up in this world and be defeated

Don’t be so blinded by its own design
Get to know out Savior Jesus
The Son God sent us Divine

It’s not perfect, there are struggles
Battles and fears deep within
The important thing is
I have trust and walk with Him.

Two Ways To Live

Two Ways To Live - Draft6

The Battle, by Tara Obriecht

In a battle
Most can’t even see
Idols blind us, sell your morals
Just saying you believe won’t set you free

The armor is all around us
But we act too busy to wear
Desensitization destroys us
Slowly we no longer care

Foundations are cracked
Needing to fit in this world wins
Scripture gets twisted
Christians don’t even understand what’s a sin

Knowing your enemy is important
Read the Word seek and you shall find
Putting ourselves before our Lord and others
Makes us all so blind

Lives ruined by unrealistic expectations
Fed to us by media, movies and TV
We pick our own path
And decide my god is Me

So busy with so many material things
Yet empty we stay
There is a battle
Many lose each and every day

Take a moment and realize
There is much more here
Let go of your selfish ways
Open your mind and He’ll make it so beautifully clear.
