Jesus' Good News for Us


(1) Why Jesus Came: John 10:10 “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”  NIV  (John 10:10 means verse 10 in chapter 10 of the Gospel of John)  NIV

(4) So Christ Paid Our Penalty: 1 Peter 3:18 “Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God. He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit”  NLT

(6) Our Part: We Must Believe: Romans 3:22-25 “We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood.“  NLT

(10) Assurance of Salvation - 1 John 2.3-4  “we can be SURE that we know him if we obey his commandments. If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth.”  NLT
