Good works and intentions will not save

He is God, yet also became sinless man

He rose again and is alive today

• “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)


IV. YOU MUST
Count the cost of following Christ

• “And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” (Luke 9:23-24)

Forsake your sins and ask God to forgive you

Place your faith in Christ, submitting yourself to Him
