II Corinthians 5:21 - God made Him (Jesus) who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.John 1:12 - ...to all who received Him, to those that believe in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.

  • Principle # 5: How do we GROW in our relationship with Jesus?

    We develop our relationship with Jesus by love, faith and obedience.

  • ...was not our ancestor Abraham considered righteous for what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the alter?...Abraham believed God...and he was called Gods friend. James 2:20-23

  • As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Fathers commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that my joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:9-15

  • You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his masters business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I have learned from my Father I have made known to you. John 15:9-15

  • Take It Away...

    Jesus wants to be our #1 BFF and is the very best friend we can ever dream of. Its up to us to accept His offer of a personal friendship with the living God man a friendship that starts now and lasts for all of eternity!
