The Gospel of the Grace of God:
Mankind’s Problem Sin: By our nature, we are all helpless sinners. As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: Romans 3:10 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God: Romans 3:23
Mankind’s Penalty Death: Being separated from God forever. For as in Adam all die… 1 Corinthians 15:22a; For the wages of sin is death... Romans 6:23a
God’s Only Solution–Eternal Life: The Lord Jesus Christ paid the penalty for sin through His Shed Blood. …But the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23b … Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: I Corinthians 15:3-4 …even so in Christ shall all be made alive. I Corinthians 15:22b
Mankind’s Only Two Choices:
Believe, by faith alone that Christ died for your sins. …In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise... Ephesians 1:12-14
Not believe, and pay for your own sins eternally in the Lake of Fire, which burns with fire and brimstone. – Revelation 21:8
Make your choice for eternal life today, before it is everlastingly too late!
…on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus
Christ: Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence
of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; 2Thessalonians 1:7-10

Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, … I Corinthians 1:2
Conversation: means manner of life or behavior also defined as citizenship
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation … I Peter 3:1-2
For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, … Philippians 3:20-21
Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: …
THE WORD OF GOD* IS THE POWER OF GOD* THAT DOES THE WORK OF GOD
WORD OF GOD WORKS WHEN SAINTS BY FAITH BELIEVE IT (I THESSALONIANS 2:13)
Saints have a new identity In Christ, which enables Saints to live lives that bring forth fruit to God’s Glory and grow to become Faithful Saints.
Note: Spiritual Growth comes in “time.” To taste of the grace of God is one thing; to be established in it and manifest it in character, habit and regular life, is another. Fruit ripens slowly; days of sunshine and days of storm each add their share. Blessing will succeed blessing and storm follow storm before the fruit is full-grown or comes to maturity. (Miles Stanford)
