Jesus is Lord

 

The ABC of Christianity

By Deacon Obi

God Loves Us, God is Holy, God is Just, God is Merciful

His Mercy Endures Forever – But We Have a Choice

God Loves Us

  • God created us – He gave us His own spirit

  • God's intention was to have fellowship with us

  • We sinned – sin is rebellion against God

  • But He still loved us

God is Holy

  • Holy God could not fellowship with us because of sin

  • Sin created separation between God and us

  • But He still loved us

God is Just

  • Justice demands that we pay for our sin

  • God introduced moral law for us

  • We could not and cannot keep God's moral law because sin corrupted us

  • But God still loved us – so He made a Grand-Plan

God is Merciful

  • God, Himself came to the world as Jesus Christ (both God and man) – Big mystery

  • Jesus suffered as man, all the while glorifying God

  • Jesus died on the cross and paid the penalty for our sin

    • God's justice was fulfilled

    • God's mercy was manifested

    • We can now have relationship with God again (Grace)

  • Jesus defeated death for ever and rose from the grave in 3 days

God’s Mercy Endures Forever

  • We became holy and righteous again, through faith in Jesus Christ

  • God promised to come back to earth again as Jesus Christ (His second coming)

The Choice is Ours

  • God left us with His spirit which we lost due to sin (the Holy Spirit). Available to those who believe

  • We can now have fellowship with God again, forever, if we choose

  • We have temporary fellowship now, through Jesus, by the Holy Spirit

  • We will have fellowship forever, through eternal life in heaven, if we choose.

  • It is by choice, inot by force.
