  • This is the good news of the Bible wrapped up in 2 verses. You see, God created us to know him personally and experience his love. But because of sin we are separated from God and are not able to experience his love and plan for our lives. In Romans 6:23 it actually says that the wages of sin is death. We are all under this death penalty. So far that is not good news at all. The good news is that God provided a way for us to know him and be restored in our relationship with God. Romans 5:8 says: But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Real love acts, and Jesus proved his love for us when he paid that death penalty for us. The only thing we can do is accept the free offer that he gives us to believe in him and accept that payment by giving our lives over to him. Until we begin that relationship with God we will we will never be able to love others with this radical love of God’s. If you have never trusted Christ with your life I’d like you to think about that as I speak today and if that is something you think God is asking you to do, all you have to do is ask Jesus to come into your life to forgive your sins and be your Savior and give him control of your life. . I’ll also hang around to talk with you after the service as well. Knowing God is the first step toward radical love. The second is that we are commanded to love
