Good News

Continued from last month

            How does a person enter into a relationship with a loving God and begin living an abundant LIFE He promises us? That is why God sent Jesus to the earth, to live among us as a human, though He was also God’s Son—to tell us and show us how to do this incredible thing: Love Him and live this abundant LIFE—sharing God’s own LIFE with Him as part of a family.  The four Gospels (four biographies) about Jesus in the New Testament are where we learn about what LIFE with God is like.

A Tale of Horses

       God continues to do all that is necessary to bring YOU into absolute surrender to his will.  After all, haven’t you prayed in one way or another for his will to be done on earth—and in you—as it is in heaven—in the so-called Lord’s Prayer? 

 

           We live during an amazing era in which God is working in you (as part of the entire worldwide Church). You’re one of his children through which He is pouring out his Spirit to draw all humanity to Himself.

 

Good News

               Long ago, a believer in Jesus named Paul wrote these words:  “I’m not ashamed of the Good News of what God has done for everyone through Jesus.  In fact, that Good News contains within itself actual power to save everyone who believes it.” Paul also wrote:  “If you honestly proclaim out loud to others that Jesus is your Master, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”  Okay what’s this “saved” and “salvation” stuff all about?  Who needs saved?  And from what?  Saved from two things:  Sin and Death.  Anyone who is a sinner needs saved—needs salvation.  Who is a sinner?  We all are.  What is sin?  It is choosing a lifestyle of living your life for your own self, being self-centered and self-absorbed, instead of being God-centered.  We’re all sinners.  We’re all going to die.  God—through Jesus—has provided salvation for each of us . . . if we’ll simply receive his salvation.  Salvation is a gift from God, but as with any gift, the gift is of no value unless we receive it and “open” it.

 

So . . . God freely saves us from sin and death.  Not a bad deal, no matter how you look at it . . . .
