The Atonement

Adapted from 1 John 4:7-15

Dear friends, 

Let us love one another, for love comes from God. 

Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. This is love: 

Not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 

God is love.  

Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. God, please help us to experience your love today so we can embody it for others as we go forth from here.

Adapted from Romans 5:6-82 & Corinthians 5:21

Leader: God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

People: You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
