GOD'S PLAN for the salvation of humankind can be summarized in the following statements:
+ God loves you! 
"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."
(John 3:16)
+ You are a sinner. 
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
(Romans 3:23)
+ God punishes sin. 
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." 
(Romans 6:23)
+ Jesus took our punishment. 
"Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners."
(1 Timothy 1:15)
"But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." 
(Romans 5:8)
+ Jesus rose from the dead. 
"For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures." 
(1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
+ Jesus offers forgiveness of sins and eternal life to those who believe in Him. 
"He then brought them out and asked, 'Sirs, what must I do to be saved?' 
They replied, 'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved - you and your household." 
(Acts 16:30-31)
+ Salvation is free - a gift from God. 
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves,
it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast." 
(Ephesians 2:8-9)
We thank God daily for His G R A C E - God's Riches At Christ's Expense!
