GOD Loves Us So Much!
We all have sinned against God and deserve to be separated from God.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
“For the wages of sin death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
“If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” 1 John 1:10
We Cannot Save Ourselves
“Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.” Titus 3:5
God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, into the world and gave his life to save sinners.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
You must repent – be sorry for your sins and turn from them.
“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38
Confess (tell) your sins to God who has power to save and to wash our sin through the blood of Jesus.
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
You must believe and by faith receive Jesus.
But as many as receive him, to them he gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” John 1:12
Open your heart now, receive Jesus Christ, and take up your cross daily and follow Him. You are now a child of God, cleansed by the blood, and adopted into His family.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ he is a new creature old things are passed away behold, all things are become new. 11 Corinthians 5:17
Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38
Step after Salvation
LOVE – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with your entire mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37
We obey God’s commandments (rules) because we love God.

I believe the secret to building stronger families that stick together, communicate more, and love each other is to cook together, eating around the table together, play together, vacation together, and share God’s love.
