JESUS

Our Savior

  

* Jesus does not want to condemn you; He wants to save you. He loves each person 

unconditionally. He wants all to be saved (I Tim. 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9. His love never ends (John 13:1. 

* Jesus is God's answer to man's sin problem. Sin in universal- “There is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10) and fatal- “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). 

* Jesus is the son of God. He is the promised Messiah, Son of God and Savior of the world.  He went about doing good (Acts: 10:38). Jesus is Lord. 

* Jesus is “One of Us” (The Son of man). “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14). Jesus was miraculously conceived in Mary's womb as a baby (Matt: 1:23). 

* Jesus was crucified by His own people for being too holy. His “Crimes” included: healing on the Sabbath (Matt.12:9-14); driving exchangers from the temple (John 2:13-16). 

* Jesus came back to life. Jesus lives again. His enemies have tried to disprove this – can't. 

* Jesus built the church and wants you to be a member. “On this rock I will build My 

church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Matt. 16:18). 

* Jesus reigns over the whole world-except one place. He presently rules as the world's 

King (I Tim. 6:15). He stands at the door and knocks at human hearts (Revelation 3:20). 

* Jesus will judge everyone. All nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. (Matt. 25:31-33).  

* Jesus wants each person to follow Him (Matt. 11:28-30). He stands read to save; He is the only way to heaven. Only Jesus can save your soul (Matt. 16:26).

The Simple Gospel

  

No book written by man has so many simple words as the New Testament. There is an air of simplicity about the biographies of Jesus which, like the breezes from the Galilean hills, blows upon our sophisticated minds. The gospel has not been recorded in philosophical phraseology, scientific terms, complicated sentences, or the dialects of angels; it has been expressed in the simplest terms so that even children can understand. Man has muddied the stream of divine thought by theological and ecclesiastical terms and phrases until it is much more difficult to understand the doctrines of men than the simple teachings of the New Testament. The gospel of Jesus contains truths so plain and clear that the untrained minds of innocent children can begin to catch and follow them (Matthew19:13). Teachers often confuse by their clouded explanation, when, if they would just read the New Testament aloud, the simplicity of thought would be gained. While on earth, Jesus replaced the traditions of men with respect to the law by His simple teachings. The instructions given to Christians as to how to live the Christian life can be understood. No one has a just complaint to make against the requirement of the New Testament toward a simple life.

“The Simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3).

DON'T STAY AWAY FROM CHURCH

 Because you are poor. There is no admission charge. 

Because you are rich. Money is not everything. 

Because it rains. You go to work in the rain. 

Because it is cold. It is warm and friendly inside. 

Because it is hot. So are fishing and golf. 

Because no one invited you. People go to a lot of places uninvited, and even pay to get in. 

THIS PAPER IS YOUR INVITATION. 

Because of hypocrites. We associate with them in the world every day. 

Because of company. Bring them along; they will admire you. Because you have little children. Jesus say: “SUFFER LITTLE CHILDREN, AND FORBID THEM NOT, TO COME UNTO ME.” (Matthew 19:14). 

 Because your clothes are not nice enough. God looks on the heart. Because you don't like the preacher. He is human, as we all are. Because the church always wants money. That is not true here. Because you have plenty of time in the future. Are you sure? “O COME, LET US WORSHIP AND BOW DOWN; LET US KNEEL BEFORE THE LORD OUR MAKER.” - Psalm 95: 

image24

THOUGHTS:

  

We don't need to learn how to get along with sin; we need to learn how to get along with God.


You may be only one person in the world but to one person you may be the world. 


It’s not what we gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you lived. 


Among God's best gifts to us are the people who love us.day
