The Good News

by Sam

For I am not ashamed of the Good News of Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation for everyone who believes; for the Jew first, and also for the Greek. For in it is revealed God’s righteousness from faith to faith. As it is written, “But the righteous shall live by faith.”

Romans 1:16-17

What is the Good News of Christ? It starts with understanding that everyone is a sinner and the punishment for sin is death. The Good News is that Christ can take the punishment and give us His character and record.

Only through the power of God Himself and can He take the punishment for our sins. Jesus exchanged His perfect life for our sinful one. He took upon Himself all the sins of every single person who has ever lived, is living, and will live. He bore the wrath of God’s justice against sin while being sinless.

All this so that Jesus can give His perfect sinless record to us. Not only the record, but Jesus wants to change us into His image. He wants to grow us into perfection.

How can we receive this gift? By believing in Jesus and giving Him our lives. Jesus wants you to believe in Him and to believe in the Good News. He’s offering His record to you and the chance to become perfect. Will you believe and take it today?
