For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. II Corinthians 5:14-15 (NIV)
I am convinced: Jesus died the death I deserved, because I sin—he didn’t.
All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. II Corinthians 5:18-19 (NIV)
I am convinced: In Christ’s death I am reconciled to God—my sin will never be held against me. This is GRACE.
We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. II Corinthians 5: 20-21 (NIV)
I am convinced: On the cross, Jesus took my sin and exchanged it for his perfect righteousness.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 (NIV)
I am convinced: God sacrificed his Son because he loves me—he loves us!
You need never fear his wrath nor his condemnation.
Christ’s love compells me to implore you—be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Jesus we might become the righteousness of God!
