“The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.”
Because we can trust God, we can trust the Bible.
“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
–2 Corinthians 5:21
Jesus lived a perfect life & took the punishment I deserve.
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ & believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe & are justified, & it is with your mouth that you profess your faith & are saved.”
Jesus died to take the punishment I deserve so I can be forgiven.
“But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: ‘Be holy, because I am holy.'”
–1 Peter 1:15–16
Living for God means becoming more like Jesus.
Communion reminds us of what Jesus did for us.
