Everyone is a sinner.

    • “Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one” (Ps 53:3).
    • “For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinnethnot” (Eccl 7:20).

The Penalty for Sin is Severe

Scripture outlines severe penalties for those who sin.


Sin brings spiritual death (Rom 6:23; Rom 7:11).

  • Sin enslaves its practioners (Jn 8:34).
  • Sin separates from God—both in this life & the life to come (Is 59:2; 2 Thess 1:9).
  • Sin shall bring God’s wrath upon those who live in it (Rom 1:18; Eph 5:56).

God Has Acted for

Man’s Forgiveness


The prophets often spoke about the coming forgiveness of God (Is 53:5; Zech 13:1).

  • The sacrifices under the Old Testament testified to the need for Jesus’ sacrifice (Lev 5:10; Heb 10:11).

In the New Testament, we find God’s acting for man’s forgiveness.

    • The ministry of John the Baptizer (Matt 3:2-3; Mk 1:4).
    • The death of Jesus.
      • The blood of Jesus makes man’s forgiveness possible (Matt 26:28; Eph 1:7).
      • Jesus’ work was dying for the forgiveness of our sins (Matt 20:28).
    • The apostles’ proclamation of the gospel (Lk 24:47; Acts 2:38; Acts 3:19).
