Meaning

Salvation:
v12 It's not by our own power or holiness.
v16 It is by believing in Jesus.

v13-15 Our sin is responsible for Jesus' death.

v17 Be warned if we Christians sin, it's not through ignorance like this, because we know better. (Hebrews 10:26,27)

Application

v6 Many times something I've thought is little has opened up into a great opportunity when I just did what I could. There are things that we know the Lord has told us to do, and we just need to do them. Give what you have.

v8 This should be the kind of attitude we have. We should "jump up to praise the Lord."

What are we supposed to preach when we preach the gospel?
v13-15 Tell who Jesus is, and tell His death and resurrection.

v19 We should tell people to turn away from not believing, and to change their minds to faith in Jesus (v16.)
