1 1 God’s Purpose 2 Our Problem 3 God’s Provision 4 Our Part 5 God’s Promise God’s Good News of Salvation © Pastor Mike Otto Countryside Community Church Return to The Good News

2 1. God’s PURPOSE We were created to please and glorify God by living forever in a personal, loving, authentic relationship with him. Eph. 1:4-6 …In love he predestined us to be adopted as his sons though Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will – to the praise of his glorious grace … 1 Jn. 4:19 We love because he first loved us. Col. 1:16 …all things were created by him and for him. Mt. 22:37 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. Return to The Good News

3 2. Our PROBLEM Our sin separates us from God, who is holy, and can only be paid for through death. Ro. 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Ro. 6:23 … the wages of sin is death … Isa. 59:2 … your iniquities have separated you from your God … Return to The Good News

4 Sinful Man Holy God Death Eternal Life Being Moral Ja. 2:10 … whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it. Our Sin Our sin cannot be paid for through our … Good Deeds Being Religious Return to The Good News

5 3. God’s PROVISION Jesus Christ, God’s sinless Son, died in our place for all our sin, to save us from it, and bring us to God and to Heaven. Sinful Man Holy God Death Eternal Life Our Sin Jesus Christ Three days after dying, Jesus came back to life, proving who he is and what his death accomplished. 1 Cor. 15:3-5 Three days after dying, Jesus came back to life, proving who he is and what his death accomplished. 1 Cor. 15:3-5 Return to The Good News

6 1 Tim. 2:5-6 … there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men … 1 Pet. 3:18 … Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God … 1 Jn. 5:11-12 … God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. 2 Cor. 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. Jn. 11:25-26 I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies … Do you believe this? Return to The Good News

7 4. Our PART God’s salvation is received as a free gift by placing trust in Jesus Christ for it; trusting in him completely and only. Sinful Man Holy God Death Eternal Life Our Sin Jesus Christ Faith Return to The Good News

8 Jn. 3:16, 18, 36 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 … Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already … Whoever believes in the son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on him. Eph. 2:8-9 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. Return to The Good News

9 5. God’s PROMISE All who trust in Jesus Christ are forgiven, and given new, eternal life, beginning now, in a personal, family relationship with God. Jn. 5:24 I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life. 1 Jn. 5:13 I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life. Jn. 10:10, 28 … I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full … I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. Return to The Good News

10 If you haven’t already, will you place your trust in Jesus Christ to save you and bring you to God? Placing trust in Jesus Christ (this is what “believe in” actually means) is all any of us can do to receive the salvation God offers. Placing trust is more than being aware of the correct biblical information about God’s salvation. Placing trust is more than becoming intellectually persuaded – acknowledging the truthfulness – of the biblical information about God’s salvation through Christ. Placing trust is personal reliance; exercising your will by coming to God in a moment of time, in simple faith, to depend completely and only on his son, Jesus Christ, as your own Savior. Return to The Good News

11 Why not tell God now that you are trusting in his Son alone, as your Savior? You could say something like this to him … Dear God, I know I am a sinner and I understand that I cannot make myself right with you through my own efforts. Lord Jesus, thank you for dying in my place, for all my sins. I am, in this moment, making a decision to place my trust in you completely, and in you alone, as my Savior. I am counting on what you did for me on that cross – because of your love for me and your grace – as the only way I can be forgiven of all my sin and enter into a right personal relationship with God. God, thank you for giving me the free gift of eternal life in Heaven. Thank you for new life, with new potential, beginning now, through your Son, Jesus Christ. Thank you for making me your own child forever. Return to The Good News
