But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.
There is ONE Great God
God is the Creator of all things. Acts 17:24-26 tells us that God made the world and does not live in shrines, idols, or anything created by human hands. God needs nothing from us but instead gives everyone life and breath.
“…proves His own love for us…”
God loves His creation, and has proven His love for us.
We have ONE Great Problem
“…in that while we were still sinners…”
Mankind has a sin problem. We rebel against God and try to take control of our lives and our universe from the God who created it. Romans 3:23 says that everyone has sinned against God. Romans 6:23 says that the wages of sin is death (spiritual death).
God has provided us with ONE Great Hope
“Christ died for us.”
We are unable to save ourselves from our sin problem. Only God is great enough to do that and He proved His love for us by sending Jesus Christ as a perfect sacrifice to suffer the penalty of our sin through His death on the cross and the resurrection. 1 Peter 3:18 says that “Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, that He might bring you to God.” Jesus Christ is our ONE and only way back to God.
We have ONE Great Decision
Repent and believe!
The Bible teaches in Mark 1:15 that we must repent of our sin and believe the Gospel. Romans 10:13 states that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved. How is this done? “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” (Romans 10:9). John 3:16 says, “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”
