This Is A Matter Of Life And Death…

Have you heard the GOOD NEWS?

God Loves You!

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17


Everyone Has Sinned!

“This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.” Romans 3:22-23 & 1 John 1:8


Sin Must Be Paid For!

For the wages of sin is death…” Romans 6:23


Good News! Jesus Christ Has Already Paid For Our Sins!

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8


We Must Receive God’s Gift Of Salvation By Faith!

“…but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord… If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness… Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Romans 6:23, 1 John 1:9 & Romans 10:13

 

Praise God! God extended his grace to us when we are completely undeserving! His love and mercy toward us is worthy of my praise and devotion! Prayer and Bible reading is how I communicate with my Lord. The Bible is God’s Word–a letter of love, instruction, and a story of God’s grace throughout history.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16

Sermon Jam: “Because He Is Good”

I have been following Theologigal for a few weeks. Her latest post has a great video which sums up why I need Jesus. I encourage you to view the video and her commentary here.

“So often when Christians hear or read a call to repentance they think, “Yes, that’s so true! People have sinned! People need to repent!” But the word, “people” includes you, and before you can think of anyone else in your life who you think needs repentance you first need to think about yourself, how you have sinned, how you need to repent, before you fall into the trap of being a finger-pointing Pharisee (Matt. 7:5).”
