Lesson 6 - One, Two, Three!
God is One God, and at the same time,
God reveals Himself to us as 3 Persons.
Why? By telling us about Himself as
God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit,
God helps us to understand
Who He is, what He has done and what He will do.
Oh yes, everything God created tells us something about Him.
But what our eyes see cannot tell us everything we must know.
God has a message for our souls.
To speak to our souls, God wrote a Book.
His Book is called The Word of God, The Bible.
What is the message of The Word of God to our souls?
The message is this:
JESUS Christ, the Son of God.
Jesus Christ is The Message and The Messenger!
God the Father sent His Son to earth to save His people
from their sins.
Jesus obeyed His Father perfectly.
He came from heaven to be the wonderful solution for man's sin.
Jesus Christ gave His life for all God's people.
Their sins are washed away forever in His blood.
People everywhere will hear The Message, but the Holy Spirit
will tell God's people, plainly: Jesus Christ paid for YOUR sins!
All God's people believe The Message.
All God's people believe that Jesus Christ IS their Saviour!
THE HYMN: I Know Whom I Have Believed
"...for I know Whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have commited unto Him against that day." 2 Timothy 1:12
I know not why God's wondrous grace, to me He hath made known,
Nor why, unworthy, Christ in love redeemed me for His own.
But, "I know Whom I have believed,
and am persuaded that He is able
to keep that which I've committed
unto Him against that day."
I know not why this saving faith, to me He did impart,
Nor how believing in His Word brought peace within my heart.
I know not how the Spirit moves, convincing men of sin,
Revealing Jesus through His Word, creating faith in Him.
I know not what of good or ill may be reserved for me,
Of weary ways or golden days, before His face I see.
I know not when my LORD shall come, at night or noonday fair,
Nor if I walk the vale with Him or meet Him in the air.
