Know Christ

KNOW christ

“By this gospel you are saved… , if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. … that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time…”
– 1 Corinthians 15:2-5

I
god

God is Holy, Just, & He is Love. He created everything including you and He reigns over all.

 

II
COMMAND

Like a father & child, God has graciously given you life & breath.  He commands you to be like Him – living lives of love and goodness.

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the first and great commandment, And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
– Matthew 22:36-39

III
SIN

Instead, we each rebel and sin again God & others by doing the wrong we should not do, and not doing the good that we should do. We deserve eternal punishment in hell for our lifetime of sins.

 

IV
JESUS

Jesus is God. He loves you. Jesus is the perfectly good person that we should be, and He died to take the punishment for sin that we deserve. He then rose again to prove his payment for your sin was complete.

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit”
– 1 Peter 3:18

V
RESPONSE

We Must Respond – Repent, Believe, Receive.  God will forgive all your sins, past, present, and future – and give you new life in Him.

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel.”
– Mark 1:15
