Who is a sinner? Romans 3:23~ all have sinned and falls short of the glory of God. Sin is any lack of conformity to the character and will of God. No one is righteous not even one – Romans 3:23 no one does good, not a single one – Romans 3:12 We all have sin in our hearts. We Were born with sin. We were born under the power of sin’s control. We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one who is innocent. We can chose to love ourselves and turn to our selfish pursuits. That is sin. In our sin we cannot know god and His love. The result of sin is that we are lost…separation of god. ADMIT THAT YOU ARE A SINNER
SIN STUFF• The presence of the sin nature has thoroughly corrupted man’s total being. His personality ---intellect, emotion, and will---is tuned away from God and toward sin.• What comes out of a man is what makes him unclean. For from within, out of mens hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man unclean. " – (Mark 7:20-23)• One sin involves the mind; the other involves both the mind and the body; but they are both sin.• You are lost in sin! Sin dominates you completely--- your past, your present, and your future.• Nothing good lives in you, that is, in your sinful nature .
Our price for sin Romans 6:23a~For the wages of sin is DEATH. Sin has an ending. It results to death. We all face physical death, which is the result of death. But a worse death is a spiritual that alienates us from God, and will last for all eternity.Understand that you deserve death for sin!
Sin on the cross• For When we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for ungodly. For scarcely for righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love towards us, in that we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:6-8)• when Jesus died on the cross He paid Sin’s penalty. He paid the cosmic price for all sin, and when He took all the sins of the world on himself on the cross, He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only condition is that we believe in him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are now joined with Him, and that He is our life. He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us!
Ephesians 2:4-5• But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. It is only by God’s grace that you have been saved!
The Gift Of Eternal Life Romans 6:23b~ But the gift Of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord We can’t earn this gift. We must reach out and receive it. Salvation is a free gift from God to you! ASK GOD TO FORGIVE YOU AND SAVE YOU!!!!
God, He is always there During times of great stress when problems seem to be everywhere and all hope is gone, He is always there.

Confession pt 2• If a man confessed faith in Jesus, as the Lord and Savior of lost sinners, and really believed in his heart that God had raised him from the dead, thus showing that he had accepted the atonement, he should be saved by the righteousness of Christ, imputed to him through faith.• We must devote and give up to God our souls and our bodies: our souls in believing with the heart, and our bodies in confessing with the mouth.
