The Gospel – Amazing Grace!
- Apart from Christ we are helpless and sinful.
- Jesus saves us by grace and through faith.
- The Lord Jesus call sinners like you and me.
- We are saved to joyfully obey and serve the Lord.
Our only hope is the Amazing Grace of Jesus Christ!
We can’t just be good; we can’t possibly be good enough! God’s moral standard convicts us of our need for His grace.
I have lied, that makes me a liar.
I’ve stolen what doesn’t belong to me, that makes me a thief.
That means I’m a liar and thief, and that’s only 2 of the 10 commandments of God!
Do we still think we’re good enough to go to heaven on our own? The penalty for breaking just one of God’s commands, called sin, is death! An eternal spiritual death.
The only way to avoid the penalty is if someone that has not broken any of God’s commands took your penalty for you.
And that is exactly what Jesus Christ did! Jesus Christ paid the price for our sins. That is Amazing Grace!
John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
God’s only begotten son humbled himself and became a man in order that he might pay the price for our sins.
Romans 10:9 says “if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
It is only by God that we are saved!
Repent and Rejoice in God’s grace!
