Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/11/14

This week’s scripture is from 1 Corinthians:

Bible - John“Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel… [for] by this gospel you are saved…”  (1 Cor. 15:1a,2a)

Let us remember the gospel, the good news of the kingdom of God, that Jesus Christ brought to us, for we were sinners separated from God and lost to Him, for God is holy; we are not; God is righteous; we are not. We were objects of wrath, without salvation. Yet His love for us is so great that He sent His son, His one and only Son, to suffer and die in our place, to atone for our sin, that by His blood, death, and resurrection, we might be reconciled to God, our Father in heaven, that if we believe, if we repent and draw near to Him, He is faithful to forgive us and to accept us, for Jesus’ sacrifice cleanses us of all sin and unrighteousness. This is the good news: we were sinners, apart from God, but now we are saved.

May the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ be on your heart and on your lips.
