God Loves You: John 3:16
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Because God loves you he wants you to be aware of something.
You must be born again spiritually: John 3:3
"Jesus answered, and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
"That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” John 3:6
Why do we need to be born again spiritually?
We are all sinners (missing God's perfection): Romans 3:23
"For all have sinned,and come short of the glory of God"
What is the result of our sin?
Spiritual Death, Separation from God: Romans 6:23a
"For the wages of sin is death..."
Just as you earn wages while working, God has to pay you for what you've done, and that is Eternal separation from himself. But I have GOOD NEWS!!!!!
Christ died in our place, he paid the Wages of Sin!
"But God commendeth (proved) his love toward us in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Therefore, the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
Knowing this, what do we need to understand?
