ONE GREAT HOPE
FOCAL PASSAGE: Romans 5:8 (HCSB)... But God proves His own love
for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!
THERE IS ONE GREAT GOD
Romans 5:8... “But God proves His own love...”
1. THERE IS ONE GOD
Acts 17:24-26 doesn’t say “the gods” or “one of the gods.”
This passage reminds us that God made the world and needs NOTHING from us. In fact we have nothing to offer God.
2. GOD LOVES US… God is love! I John 4:7 (HCSB)
Why do you think it is important for God to prove His love?
ONE GREAT PROBLEM
We all have one great problem: “...while we were still sinners...”
1. WHAT IS SIN?
Sin is either knowing something is wrong and doing it anyway, or knowing right things to do and not doing it. Romans 3:23 (KJV)
2. THE PENALTY FOR SIN
What we deserve for our sin and rebellion is punishment.
The Bible calls this punishment “death” . . . it really means separation from God (hell). Romans 6:23
What does this say about all humanity?
ONE GREAT HOPE
There is One great hope: “...Christ died for us!”
1. HOPELESS CONDITION
We are unable to save ourselves from our sin problem.
Isaiah 59:2 (HCSB)
2. GOD’S REMEDY...Jesus is our one and only way back to God.
Isaiah 53:6 (HCSB) and I Peter 3:18
ONE GREAT DECISION
1. WE HAVE ONE GREAT DECISION
We need to turn away from sin (repent) and believe the Good News that Jesus died for our sins.
Mark 1:15 (HCSV) and Romans 10:13 (HCSV)
2. HOW DO WE DO THIS?
If you have never made a personal decision to accept God’s gift of love, forgiveness and salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ, will you do it today?
Dear God, I know that I’m a sinner. I believe that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and then rose from the dead. Please forgive me of all my sin. With your help, I will turn away from what I have been doing that is wrong and confess you as my Lord. I trust you alone for my salvation. Thank you for the love, forgiveness and the free gift of eternal life.
