Paul's Central Message "Through Jesus Christ, one's sins can be forgiven" • All people are sinful. • Christ died to pay the penalty for our sins. • Salvation is available to all. • Our salvation is unearned, and we are saved by trusting completely in Christ and His finished work. • We must ask Christ to come into our lives. 6. When we receive Christ, we experience a new birth. We become a new person. 7. We are assured eternal life with God. 8. We experience freedom from the penalty of sin. 9. We become like Christ. 10.We discover God’s limitless love. (Romans 3)

Why was Paul so motivated?
In his own words: “But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more,I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord,for whose sake I have lost all things.” Philippians 3:7-8 Paul said he was so motivated because Christ had changed his life, and knowing Christ became more important to him than anything else.
In his own words: “For the Lord himself will come down from Heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first…Now brothers about times and dates we do not need to write you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 5:1-2 Paul said that he believed Christ would return to earth, and those who followed Christ would go to be with Christ while others would enter eternal damnation and it would happen suddenly.
In his own words: “On the contrary, they saw that I had been entrusted with the task of preaching the Gospel to the Gentiles, just as Peter had been to the Jews. For God, who was at work in the ministry of Peter as an apostle to the Jews, was also at work in my ministry as an apostle to the Gentiles.” Galatians 2:7-8 Paul said that he was given the responsibility of telling Gentiles about Christ. He had to tell them; no one else was.
