The Only Place

Thursday, December 29, 2016| Message byEric Ludy
In ancient Israel, during times of rebellion, the people set up high places as an alternative worship and to seek help and salvation in someone or something other than God Himself. Why would anyone ever build a high place? It is because they believed the lie that salvation is found in more than One Place—and in today’s culture we often do the same thing. High places today may not be altars or poles, but we do often build high places in the health, financial, comfort, intelligence, relational, and religious areas of our lives. In this illuminating and convicting sermon, Pastor Eric Ludy examines the areas we often set up as counterfeit means of salvation and explains that the high place of “self” must be removed so that One Place (Jesus Christ and the Cross) becomes our sole means of salvation.
