16 God’s Son Was Our Sacrifice God preserved a godly generation Deity united with humanity - in virgin’s womb God’s Son suffered for our sin Perfect justice was carried out on Him God so loved us that He gave His Son

17 God was Motivated By Love God is sovereign, Man has a free will To receive Christ by faith is a choice Nothing can separate them from His love

18 Believers Express God’s Love God poured out His love freely Believers are a channel of His love They do not need to manufacture it Only let it flow through to others

19 Believers Express Love to God First and greatest command is: “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart…sol and …mind” God expects our love We fail miserably in our love to God We now have the capacity to love Him

20 Believers To Love Fellow Man The second greatest commandment is: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” Love others with a divine love Love the unlovable because God does
