C.R.I.M.E. and the Bible story

I heard and overview of the Bible story today using the letters f the word C.R.I.M.E. I thought it was really good so I wanted to share it…

C – Creation. God created the world and everything in it, including people. See Genesis 1

R- Rebellion. Mankind rebelled against God by not obeying His command. See Genesis 3.

I – Intervention. God intervened by sending His son Jesus to die on the cross for our sin. See Hebrews 9:28 and Romans 5:8.

M – Mission. Jesus gave us a mission to go and make disciples of all nations. See Matthew 28:18-20.

E – Eternity. We will all spend eternity with God or without God. We all need to accept what Christ has done for us. See John 1:12 and John 3:16.

This simple overview helps us to understand a large part of the Bible’s story. It tells us how we came to be here and where we are going.
