Loved and Forgiven

Note: NLT = New Living Translation is used on all the scriptures unless otherwise indicated.

God loved us first…then He forgave our sins to bring us back to Him through His only Son, our Lord Jesus!

Such an amazing grace. Even when we are sinners, Christ died for us!

From Sinner to Saved to Changed to Delivered to adopted Son of God!

Sinners Saved

Romans 5:8 New Living Translation
But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

1 John 4:9-10 New Living Translation
God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love–not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.

We are doomed to death but He saved us. We are condemned from the start. But thank God! By the hearing of His message, the Word, by moving us to accepting His Son, we are redeemed!

Romans 10:17 New Living Translation
So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.

Mark 16:16 New Living Translation
Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned.

  1. 1 John 2:23 New Living Translation
    Anyone who denies the Son doesn’t have the Father, either. But anyone who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
  2. John 1:12 But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.
  3. Galatians 3:26 For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

It’s a harsh reality. Refuse and be condemned. Do you have any idea where you will be condemned or how?

Acts 2:38 New Living Translation
Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

No repentance, No turning to God, No baptism, No forgiveness of sin = No gifts from the Holy Spirit.

Acts 16:31 New Living Translation
They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.”

Romans 10:9 New Living Translation
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

1 Corinthians 12:3 New Living Translation
So I want you to know that no one speaking by the Spirit of God will curse Jesus, and no one can say Jesus is Lord, except by the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 1:18 New Living Translation
The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.

Mark 8:38 New Living Translation
If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

Romans 1:1 New Living Translation
For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes–the Jew first and also the Gentile.

1 John 3:24 New Living Translation
Those who obey God’s commandments remain in fellowship with him, and he with them. And we know he lives in us because the Spirit he gave us lives in us.

1 John 4:15-21 New Living Translation
All who confess that Jesus is the Son of God have God living in them, and they live in God. We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. We love each other because he loved us first. If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a Christian brother or sister, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? And he has given us this command: Those who love God must also love their Christian brothers and sisters.

1 John 5:11 New Living Translation
And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life. I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.

If you believed and accepted Christ, He will live in you and you will be a temple of God.

1 Corinthians 3:16 Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God lives in you?

2 Corinthians 2:15 Our lives are a Christ-like fragrance rising up to God. But this fragrance is perceived differently by those who are being saved and by those who are perishing.

Romans 8:9 New Living Translation
But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.)

Towards the Family

Ephesians 5:25-28 New Living Translation
For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself.

1 Peter 3:7 New Living Translation
In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.

Colossians 3:18-21 New Living Translation
Wives, submit to your husbands, as is fitting for those who belong to the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly. Children, always obey your parents, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, do not aggravate your children, or they will become discouraged.

Ephesians 6:4 New Living Translation
Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord.

Romans 10:12 New Living Translation
Jew and Gentile are the same in this respect. They have the same Lord, who gives generously to all who call on him.

But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him.

Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God.

1 John 4:6 New Living Translation

The Love of the Father

This is an entirely big topic to talk about. However, you may not experience or comprehend His love unless you open your mind and heart, and your whole being to Him, and let the Holy Spirit of the living God fill you, and the Lord Jesus to reign in every aspect of your life.

John 14:23 New Living Translation
Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.

John 15:9-13 New Living Translation
“I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love.When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

John 16:26-27 New Living Translation
Then you will ask in my name. I’m not saying I will ask the Father on your behalf, for the Father himself loves you dearly because you love me and believe that I came from God.

warning

Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.

Hebrews 6:4 New Living Translation
For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened–those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come–and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.

2 Peter 2:20-21 New Living Translation
And when people escape from the wickedness of the world by knowing our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and then get tangled up and enslaved by sin again, they are worse off than before. It would be better if they had never known the way to righteousness than to know it and then reject the command they were given to live a holy life.

Luke 11:26 New Living Translation
Then the spirit finds seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they all enter the person and live there. And so that person is worse off than before.”

Prayer Points

Now get to your feet! For I have appeared to you to appoint you as my servant and witness.
