In order to know what the good news is, you have to know the bad news. The bad news is that we are all sinners. We are all headed to hell. We have sinned against God and our fellow men, if not by action, then by thought -- and both are just as punishable by death.
What could be worse than dying every day with no hope of recovery? The pain never going away? The thirst for righteousness and justice never quenched?
The bad news is that it is going to get much worse. There is nothing man can do to save himself from...himself. All of the sacrifices in the world, all of the good works that we could ever do will not be enough to make up for what we have done in our lives, or in our hearts. We are doomed.
The GOOD NEWS is this:
God understood this. That is why He sent his only begotten son to us, so that HE could be the ultimate, once and for all sacrifice for the cleansing of our sins. He HAD to die in order to take on the sins of the world and pay the price for us. He was the sacrificial lamb for all the world. WITHOUT BLEMISH. SINLESS. Yet, HE was punished for you and me.
And, all you have to do is acknowledge that you, yourself, are a sinner in need of a saviour, and BELIEVE that He died for you, and ACCEPT Him into your heart to live through you.
Jesus said that it is appointed unto man once to die -- but after that is the judgment. If you die in your sins without the covering of the Cross, and HIS blood that was sacrificed for you, you will suffer an eternal damnation. If you die with HIM in your heart, and HIS BLOOD covering your sins, God will not see your sins, only the righteousness of His Son that was made manifest in YOU!
Jesus said that He was the way, the truth, and the life and NO MAN cometh to the Father EXCEPT THROUGH HIM.
The Good News is that there IS hope. Jesus is ALIVE. Jesus conquered death, hell and the grave so that WE could be FREE and have an eternity of JOY.
Won't you accept Him into your heart today?
