Points to Remember:
1. Christ’s birth and work on the earth were prophesied about before they happened.
2. Jesus is the Living Word of God, and is also referred to as the Word of Life.
3. Jesus came to be the perfect, sinless, sacrificial “Lamb of God” to take our place on the cross to fulfill God’s requirements of redemption for us, as
individuals. This was God’s way to satisfy His own requirements to take [our] sins away.
4. There must be repentance to be saved: A turning away from sin in heart, deed, and practice.
5. There must be an acceptance, by faith, personally, of God’s method of salvation through His son’s, Jesus’, substitutionary work on the cross to be saved.
