What We Have in Christ and Could Not Have Without Him

1. True peace in a hostile world.
The Lord’s peace is more than the absence of conflict. Eph. 2:14-22, John 14:27

2. Security in an unstable world.
The one who holds the world together can hold us together too, if we let him. Heb. 1:2, Col. 1:17

3. Hope in fear and uncertainty.
Nothing has failed or will fail of what Jesus promised. Phil. 4:13, Heb. 13:5-6

4. Salvation from the results of sin.
Forgiveness is the only remedy for the spiritual consequences of sin. Rom. 6:23, Gal. 6:7-8, Col. 1:14

5. Eternal life in heaven with God.
John 3:16, John 11:23-26, John 14:1-6, 1 John 2:25

With Jesus we have everything we really need for this life and the life to come. Without him we have nothing and we are nothing.
