First Assembly NLR Audio Podcast
Weekend messages from Pastor Rod Loy and FirstNLR.
You can convince yourself of almost anything.  What starts with a feeling can become a fact.  We sometimes talk ourselves into a self-concept, and even a God-concept, that has no basis in fact.  Are you really hopeless?  Is anyone too far gone for God to care about?

One of the challenges of so many religious systems being taught today is too much emphasis on ourselves:  if we accomplish enough, if we do enough good, we can obtain miracles or salvation.  Even many Christians feel that if they don't have enough faith, God may not provide miracles.  Is there a formula?  Does your healing or your miracle really depend on what you say or do?

Have you ever felt like you don't matter?  Like you are worthless, insignificant, and overlooked?  Sometimes people think God sees them that way, too.

People believe a lot of myths about God.  One of the biggest ones people struggle with is "I've messed up too many times. I believe in a loving God, but I'm beyond that. I don't think God would want someone like me.  I need to clean up my life before I can go to church."
In this message, Rod Loy looks at this myth and talks about the truth of God's love for everyone.
