Who God Is

Remember: Jesus didn’t die by chance, but by choice
1. Jesus intentionally gave His life so we might have access with God’s life.
“…we were dead because of sin.” -Ephesians 2:5
“No one can take my life from me, I sacrifice it voluntarily.” -John 10:18
“He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.” -Romans 4:25
2. It’s not that death is eliminated, but death no longer has the final word.
1 Corinthians 15:55-57
“Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.” -1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
