Living Life Together ...... in Christ!
 
 
"I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am" (John 14:3)      Eternal life gives meaning to life.  Yet....Our sinful nature keeps us from fulfilling God's purpose for our lives. Thus.......  OUR NEED IS TO UNDERSTAND OUR PROBLEM.
 
 
 

We are all sinners by nature and by choice.    

"All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23)
We cannot save ourselves.
"Not by works, so that no one can boast" (Ephesians 2:9)

 

We deserve death and hell.
"The wages of sin is death" (Romans 6:23)
Is it true that:

God is holy and just and must punish sin, yet He loves us and has provided forgiveness for our sin. "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6)
The good news is that God has provided for the forgiveness of our sins.

 
GOD'S PROVISION IS JESUS CHRIST.

 

Jesus is God and became man.
Jesus died for us on the cross.

"For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.  He was put to death in the body but made alive by the spirit" (1 Peter 3:18)"in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God....The Word became flesh and made a dwelling among us" (John 1:1,14)
 Jesus was resurrected from the dead.
"He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification" (Romans 4:25)
