Romans 10:1 Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.
At Friendship Baptist, our hearts desire and prayer for the people of the world is that they might be saved!
God's plan of salvation:
1. You and I are sinners:
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"
"For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"
2. Our sin has earned us death:
"Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death (separation from God) by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:"
"For the wages of sin is death (eternal separation from God)"
3. But, we have Good News!
"... but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
"But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
4. How to receive God's free gift:
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
5. Who can receive God's free gift:
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
