In this chaotic world, have you ever wondered if love is real? Is there hope? Can I find God? Learn about Jesus’ love!
God’s Love and Purpose
God created us to have an eternal, personal relationship with him.
God desires all be saved, but we broke that relationship, causing separation between man and God.
What is causing the separation?
Our Problem: Separation and Judgment
Sin separates us from God.
As sinful beings, our nature is corrupted by sin. As such, we willingly choose to disobey God and, instead, choose to sin.
Because of our sins, we cannot get into heaven.
God said only those with “clean hands and a pure heart” are able to get into heaven (Psalm 24:3-4).
Sin makes our hands dirty and our hearts impure. Therefore, we are not able to get into heaven.
Because of our sin, we deserve punishment.
God wants to forgive you, but he must also punish sin.
In order to be forgiven, punishment must take place, and God provided for that.
What is God’s provision for punishment?
God’s Provision: Christ
God provides a way to satisfy both justice and his desire to forgive you.
Jesus died on the cross and rose from the grave to pay the penalty of sin.
Jesus bridges the chasm separating us from God.
God provided the only way to be saved!
The only way to get to heaven is through Jesus Christ. The good news is that this gift is offered to whomever will accept it.
This gift is given freely out of God’s love and grace.
We cannot earn this gift. We don’t deserve it.
However, we can have it if we accept it.
How do you accept God’s gift?
Our Response: Repent and Believe
You can be forgiven and be saved if you repent of your sins and believe in Jesus as your savior.
God promises that whoever confesses and believes in Jesus will be saved.
