God loves us.
First of all God created us. Second of all God refuses to leave us hopeless.

Definition of Transformation:
In the Bible transformation means “change or renewal from a life that no longer conforms to the ways of the world to one that pleases God” (Romans 12:2). This is accomplished by the renewing of our minds, an inward spiritual transformation that will manifest itself in outward actions.
#3 Perish Eternally
God’s love is love that is characterized by
- Commitment, not emotion. (Rom 5:8)
- Giving, rather than receiving. (Acts 20:35)
- Grace, not indebtedness. (Gal 2:21)
- Sacrifice, not convenience. (Phil 2:6-8)
1) Make worldwide missions a priority.
2) Exalt Christ.
3) Share the gospel.
What implications should the truth of God’s gracious work of salvation have on our prayer life? On our sharing of the gospel with others? On our view about people we feel might be “too far gone” for Jesus?

Pray for 3 people you know who aren’t Christians.
I pray for ______ that they might be drawn to Jesus Christ for salvation. I pray that You, O Lord, might cause them to see their sins, and that they might cry to you and be saved. Lord, make them discontent with their self-help solutions and their misguided quest for personal peace and significance. Show them the glories of Jesus, not just as Savior, but as Lord and King. Cause them to believe on Him and be saved.
