VerseD: 1 Timothy 2:5-6

For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
1 Timothy 2:5‭-‬6, ESV

Jesus came at the right time in history to show us our need for God and His forgiveness, and He sacrificed Himself to bring that forgiveness. If we believe, we are saved from God’s judgment.

VerseD: Proverbs 15:31

The ear that listens to life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise.
Proverbs 15:31, ESV

The ultimate life-giving reproof?

You are a sinner in need a Savior, and Jesus of Nazareth is that Savior.

VerseD: 1 Peter 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
1 Peter 1:3, ESV

The Father is most glorified when we are led by the Holy Spirit to believe in the resurrected Son, and then when we take part in sharing this news with others!

VerseD: Romans 10:17

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
Romans 10:17, ESV

Too many churches rarely push the Gospel.

To few Christians can explain the Gospel.

Yet, it is the preaching of the Gospel that saves souls.

Stop. Read and know the Gospel.

Go. Share the Gospel.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 5:21

For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21, ESV

We are utterly sinful.

Christ is completely pure.

He took on our disgusting, separating sin on the cross, so that, when the Father looks at us who believe this, He sees the purity of the Son.

VerseD: Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7, ESV

Wisdom is learning from others.

True wisdom is learning that God has a perfect standard that no one can meet, but He made a way through His Son, and we take this knowledge and turn to Him.

VerseD: 1 Peter 5:6

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,
1 Peter 5:6, ESV

As the saying goes, He is God, and you are not.

But, amazingly, God lowered Himself to our level to become a man, to bring about our forgiveness and reconciliation, that we may be made like Him.

Submit to His will and His way, and He will lift us up.
