The third Big Thing

“love”

There is no love like God’s love.

The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell,

It goes beyond the highest star and reaches to the lowest hell,

The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win:

O love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong! It shall forevermore endure—the saints’ and angels’ song.

What is the most popular verse in the bible about God’s love? John 3:16

We really are a big deal.
Some of us are wrong headed and think we are a big deal when we are not such a big deal. I am the smartest in m class, but what about in all of the lower school, then in the whole school, then in the whole county, then in the whole state, then in the whole country.
You are a big deal because God made you in his image.
You are a big deal because in this verse God showed his amazing Love.

“GOD” “us”

Psalm 8:3–4 ESV
3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?

8:4 mankind. Here refers to humanity in its weak and frail existence (e.g., 9:20; 10:18; 90:3; 103:15). human beings. See NIV text note; “son of man” is a literal translation of a Hebrew phrase commonly used to refer to a human being, especially in contrast to God (80:17; 144:3; see note on Ezek 2:1 and NIV text note there). This phrase marks the exact center of the psalm (see note on 100:3), highlighting the importance of humanity in God’s eyes. It sets the stage for the soaring language about humanity’s place in creation in vv. 5–8.

“sinners”

Sin is a big deal. It separates us from God. We are at war with God.
The Bible says we are enemies of God.
Romans 5:10 ESV
10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.

21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
1 Peter 3:18 ESV
18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit,
Ephesians 2:8–9 ESV
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

The seventh Big Thing

“death”

Death is big. Death is all around us. Someone dies everyday. The Bible tell us plainly why people die.

12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned—
