GOD LOVES YOU AND HAS A WONDERFUL PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE
God’s Love For You
Has anyone ever told you that God Loves you and that He has a wonderful plan for your life?
God’s Love “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.”
All of us sin and our sin has separated us from God.
We Are All Sinful
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
We were created to have fellowship with God; but, because of our stubborn self-will, we chose to go our own independent way, and fellowship with God was broken. This self-will, characterized by an attitude of active rebellion or passive indifference, is evidence of what The Bible calls sin.
We Are Separated
“The wages of sin is death” [spiritual separation from God].
This diagram illustrates that God is Holy and people are sinful. A great gulf of sin separates us from God. The arrows illustrate that we are continually trying to reach God and the abundant life through our own efforts, such as a good life, philosophy, or religion — but we inevitably fail.
God Himself Has Provided The Way To Bridge this gulf between Himself and sinful man.
God’s Plan [Jesus Christ speaking] “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly” [that it might be full and meaningful].
Why is it that most people are not experiencing the abundant life?
