III. INVITATION But, even in the total depravity of man- (Total Depravity of man means that man was created in the image of God; but man sinned and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but that spiritual death which is separation from God: consequently all human beings are born with a sinful and depraved nature.)

Note: under each of the 5 points are subheadings, beginning with C. P. R. We have a hope through and in Jesus. see (Rom 5:17-2)

He is our life-giver (Rom 6:23) the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord
