JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD.

This is one of the most fundamental and most important doctrines of Christianity.

Romans 1:1-4 [1] Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God -- [2] the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures [3] regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendant of David, [4] and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord.

...

1 Corinthians 15:12-24 [12] But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? [13] If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. [14] And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. [15] More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised. [16] For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. [17] And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. [18] Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. [19] If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are to be pitied more than all men. [20] But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. [21] For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. [22] For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. [23] But each in his own turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him. [24] Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.

JESUS SAVED US BECAUSE OF HIS MERCY, NOT BECAUSE WE DESERVED IT.

...

Titus 3:5a he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy.

...

THERE IS ONE MEDIATOR BETWEEN GOD & MAN- JESUS.

...

1 Timothy 2:5-6 [5] For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, [6] who gave himself as a ransom for all men -- the testimony given in its proper time.

...

SALVATION IS OFFERED TO ALL MANKIND BECAUSE OF JESUS' SACRIFICE.

...

1 Timothy 2:5-6 [5] For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, [6] who gave himself as a ransom for all men -- the testimony given in its proper time.

A lot of people are under the mistaken impression that we are saved because of Jesus' sacrifice. It is important to realize that a person must do certain things to obtain salvation. Just because it is available doesn't mean he automatically gets it. Salvation is like a newspaper:

Someone had to do something in order for it to exist.
It's available before you ask for it.
You can't do it for yourself.
It doesn't come automatically.
You can't earn it.
You don't deserve to get it.
You have to ask for it.
You have to follow the rules if you want to keep it.
Once you receive it, it's up to you to do something with it!
