VerseD: 1 John 4:9

In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.
1 John 4:9, ESV

The ultimate proof of God’s love for us?

He sent His only Son to die on a cross that we may be brought into eternal life with Him (by simply believing in Him.)

VerseD: Mark 8:34-35

And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.
Mark 8:34‭-‬35, ESV

God’s primary concern is not our happiness and comfort in this life.

God’s primary concern is His glory through the salvation of His people. That frequently takes sacrifice and suffering, as our greatest example (Jesus) gave us through the cross.

VerseD: Psalm 73:26

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Psalm 73:26, ESV

We get sick.

We die.

But God never does, and He never changes. Faith in the Son is what redeems us to become like Him.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 4:18

as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:18, ESV

Our trust is not in government institutions, money, or things. These will fade away.

Our trust is in the Holy One, God, and the work of the cross. Without these, there is no long term hope.

VerseD: Psalm 16:11

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
Psalm 16:11, ESV

Christ is the only way to God and eternal life, and that is the only way to find peace and joy that not only endure but will last eternally.

VerseD: John 14:6

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6 ESV

As the bumper sticker states, “No Jesus, No Peace. Know Jesus, Know Peace.”

Contrary to popular belief, Jesus is the only way to eternal life.

VerseD: 1 Peter 1:24

for “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls,
1 Peter 1:24, ESV

We are destined to die.

But the next verse reminds us that the Word of God lasts forever, and it is this Word that saves us to eternal life.
