THE GOSPEL (THE GOOD NEWS) IS: GRACE (GOD’S LOVE FOR US)
Lam 3:21-23 “I have hope when I think about this: The LORD’s love never ends; his mercies never stop. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
Gal 5:5 “But we have the true hope that comes from being made right with God, and by the Spirit we wait eagerly for this hope.
Romans 3:22 “God makes people right with himself through their FAITH in Jesus Christ.”
Romans 1:16-17 …the good news, … it is the power God uses to save everyone… The Gospel shows how God makes people right with himself— it begins and ends with FAITH.
1 Peter 1:13 “So prepare your minds for service and have self-control. All your hope should be for the gift of grace that will be yours when Jesus Christ is shown to you.”
So prepare your minds for service and have self-control-– remember:
Phil 2:5 “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”
Eph 4:13b “We must become like a mature person, growing until we become like Christ….
1 John 2:6 “Whoever says that he lives in God must live as Jesus lived,”
Remember: John 17:3 Jesus said “this is eternal life” You must KNOW God and KNOW Jesus.
Gal 4:8 “In the past you did not know God…. But now you KNOW the true God. Really, it is God who KNOWS you.”
Romans 5:5 God has poured out his love to fill our hearts 8 God shows his great love for us
1 John 4:7-8 “….because love comes from God. Everyone who loves has become God’s child and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
1 John 2:3 “We can be sure that we KNOW God if we obey his commands.”
1 John 5:3-4 “Loving God means obeying his commands. And God’s commands are not to hard for us, …. this is the victory that conquers the world– our FAITH.”
Gal 5:6 …in Christ … the important thing is faith– the kind of faith that works through love.
Remember: 1 Cor 13:1-3 “If I do not have love, then I am nothing.” 4-8 11-12
1 Cor 13:13 these three things continue forever: faith, hope, love. And the greatest of these is love.
Eph 6:15 “On your feet wear the Good News of peace to help you stand strong.”
