VerseD: Matthew 22:37-39

And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
Matthew 22:37‭-‬39, ESV

Love God.
Love people.
The best way to do both is to fulfill the Great Commission: make disciples who love God.

VerseD: Isaiah 53:5

But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5, ESV

Jesus bore our sins and shame once for all time. Nothing can change that. And putting your faith in Hos death and resurrection forever seals you for eternal life.

VerseD: 1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
1 John 1:9, ESV

Both as Christians and not, we continue to sin. It is in our nature until Christ returns.
But, by Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection, all our sins – past, present, and future – are forgiven if we trust Him, confess, and repent.

VerseD: John 15:13

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13, ESV

God set the example. Jesus called us friends if we follow Him, and that means sacrifice and pointing people to the truth of our need for salvation.

VerseD: Revelation 3:20

Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
Revelation 3:20, ESV

What do you do with Jesus? Is He your Lord and Savior, or is He merely a ticket out of Hell? Do you let Him in to live or keep Him hidden away, nothing to talk about with others?

VerseD: John 3:18

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
John 3:18, ESV

Do you believe Jesus is the Son ofGod, is God? Do you believe He died for your sins and rose again to life?
Do you know your final destination?

VerseD: Romans 1:16

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16, ESV

Do you share the Gospel with others? Are you more concerned with how people (including yourself) feel or the truth of Christ? Do you know the Gospel well enough to share it?

VerseD: Matthew 19:26

“But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Matthew 19:26, ESV

We are unable to save ourselves. To escape God’s eternal judgment and wrath, we need His salvation through Jesus Christ’s atonement.

Video Lesson: Infinite to Infinitesimal Gospel

We should know the big picture.

It is extremely helpful to know the littlest parts: how things work and what needs to be understood.

How would you define infinity? What is it?

What is the opposite of infinity? Do you know?
(Hint: It is not negative infinity!)
[In other words, what is the limit of what we should know?]

What does the Bible say?

  1. Matthew 22:36-40
    1. L                               God.
    2. L                               people.
      1. The first 3.5 C are based on the first.
      2. The second 6.5 C are based on the second.
  2. 1 Corinthians 2:1-2
    1. The best way to love God is admit J is God who loved us enough to become a h and die for our sins.
    2. The best way to love people is tell them that God became a human to die for our sins!

There is obviously more detail on how we love God and others, but that is for another lesson!

So, love God and others by reading your Bible to know Him better and to share the full Gospel with everyone!

VerseD: Acts 2:21

“‘And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.'”
Acts 2:21, ESV

Calling on the name of the Lord is not merely praying or saying you understand or want something.
It is realizing you have been wrong and that Christ is the only way to be made right with God, believing He died for your sins, and trusting that He has indeed saved you and brought you into a saving, loving relationship.
