Scripture Reading: Romans 5:6-11

The Love of God in Christ

Intro.

1.  God is love, 1 Jno. 4:8. We know love because God showed His love for us by sending His Son into the world so we can live, 1 Jno. 4:9-11.

2.  His love is our model to love one another, 1 Jno. 4:7, 11.

3.  Godís love (active good will) for us is on full display in the death of Jesus.

 

Romans 5:6-11: Our condition without Christ, and what we are with Godís love in Christ:
