 What do people need?

What do people need SPIRITUALLY?
1) ___ before God for our sin (vs. 1-20)
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” – Hebrews 4:12-13
(Romans 14:10-13)

2) __ of our sin through Jesus (vs. 21-26)
 “But now…” (vs. 21) – Romans 1:18-3:19
“For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.” – Hebrews 2:17

3) __ God’s grace through faith (vs. 27-31)
“…But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues in it—not forgetting what they have heard, but doing it—they will be blessed in what they do.”

  • James 1:22-25
    “You are faithful and You are gracious, And I’m just grateful To think You don’t need a single thing, And still You want my heart.” – As You Find Me (Hillsong)
