Key Truths – Lesson One

Key Truth(s):

Sin does put temporary distance between you and God, but it does not affect your salvation. Confessing our sins to God removes the distance and restores you to the full joy of your relationship with Him. 

Jesus’ death and resurrection is sufficient to cover the cost of every sin. You cannot be good enough to earn your salvation, and you cannot sin badly enough to lose it.

Discussion with Friends questions:

  • Christians live by faith, not by feelings. There are times when we need to live based on what we know instead of what we feel.  Share a time in your life when you especially had to apply this truth.
  • How has confession played a role in restoring your relationships with others?

Key Truth/s:

It is possible to know for sure that God loves you right where you are in life and that your salvation is secure.

  • On our own, we are not good enough for God. {Romans 3:23 and 6:23}
  • Jesus, the son of God, made a way for us to have our relationship with God restored. {John 3:16}
  • Through His death, He paid the price for our sins, and through His resurrection, He once and for all overcame sin and death. {Romans 8:1-2}
  • If we place our trust in what Jesus has done for us (dying for us and being raised from the dead), then our relationship with God can be restored and nothing can take that away. {Romans 8:35-39}
  • Important – our relationship to God is restored only through what Jesus has done. There is nothing you or I could ever do to earn it. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • This is not based on our feelings as our feelings come and go. It is based on the word of God (The Bible) and what Jesus has done. {1 John 3:19-20}
  • If you trust in Jesus, then you are forgiven, seen as a child of God, and your eternity is secure. We can trust in Him and not fear. (This is largely what it means to be a Christian. It’s not how you live.. but what you believe has been done for you that makes you a Christian.)  {1 John 4:15-18}
