Intro: What is something that you liked to save (collect) when you were a kid?


  1. Ps 51:5, Rom 3:23 The Bible says that all mankind are sinners, that we are all born wicked, and that there is a sinful nature within everyone of us.
    1. 1 Cor 15:56 The price of sin is death, and since all mankind are born as sinners, all mankind are sentenced to death.
      1. Gen 3:4+5 The moment Adam and Eve sinned, they, and all their seed, were sentenced to death, the punishment of sin here and after life in hell.
      2. Rom 3:24, Rom 6:23 The good news is that Christ died in our place, and brought freedom to all who repent of their sins, and accept him as savior.
    2. John 3:16, 1 John 4:16 It was because God is love, and that he loved his greatest creation so much, that he provides a way out of the curse of sin.
  2. 1 John 3:8, Rom 16:20 Salvation covers hell, and also all of the effects of Sin here on earth, Jesus broke the curse of sin in this life, and also in the one to come.
    1. Isaiah 53:5, James 5:14 Through the power of God we are saved from sickness, God has the power to heal our minds, emotions, and our bodies.
      1. Gal 5:1 Jesus also saves mankind from the chains of addiction, depression, perversion, and secret sins, he wants to restore us in every way.
      2. Jeremiah 29:11-14 Jesus can save mankind from a meaningless, purpose life, and give us direction, purpose, hope, and a future.
    2. 2 Cor 5:20, Rom 10:14 Salvation through Christ is ultimately restoration to the way things were before the fall, and we are Gods messengers of this to the world.


  1. Why is it important that we remember that Christ died so that we can be saved not only from hell, but also from the consequences of sin even in this life?
  2. Have you ever met someone who seemed hopeless, without a purpose, and saw no value in their life? How did they respond when you shared Christ with them?
  3. Who can give an example of a time when God healed you, or God healed someone you know?
  4. Among all the lost people in the world, what is a particular group that God has put on your heart, and why?

End: Pray for any who need to accept the gift of salvation through Christ, pray for any who need freedom from addiction, depression, or struggle, then take requests.
