GOD LOVES YOU! BELIEVE IN HIS LOVE…
In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
– 1 JOHN 4:9-10 (NKJV)
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace
– EPHESIANS 1:7 (NKJV)
The once for all atoning sacrificial death of Christ appeases divine justice and effects reconciliation between God and mankind.
IF YOU BELIEVE, THEN YOU WILL LOVE GOD IN RETURN.
We love Him because He first loved us.
– 1 JOHN 4:19 (NKJV)
Therefore be followers of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.
– EPHESIANS 5:1-2 (NKJV)
IF YOU BELIEVE, THEN YOU WILL LOVE OTHERS.
Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
– 1 JOHN 4:11 (NKJV)
Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him.
– 1 JOHN 5:1 (NKJV)
And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God in Christ also forgave you.
– EPHESIANS 4:32 (NKJV)
IF YOU BELIEVE, THEN YOU WILL STOP FEELING GUILTY.
For if our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart, and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God.
– 1 JOHN 3:20-21 (NKJV)
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
– EPHESIANS 2:10 (NKJV)
IF YOU BELIEVE, THEN YOU WILL BE FORGIVING
and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
– 1 JOHN 1:7b (NKJV)
and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the emnity.
-EPHESIANS 2:16 (NKJV)
Jesus Christ died not only for your sins but also for the sins of even your worst enemy. You are able to forgive yourself and others, not because anyone deserves such, but because Jesus paid the price of God’s forgiveness for all of us with His own precious blood.
BELIEVE IN GOD’S SON, THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,
AND YOU SHALL BE SAVED.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
– JOHN 3:16 (NKJV)
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.
– EPHESIANS 2:8-9 (NKJV)
ACCEPT JESUS, FOREVER FORGIVEN
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name:
– JOHN 1:12 (NKJV)
