What is the Good News?
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
(Romans 6:23, NIV)
God wants to have a relationship with us. However, our sin caused a separation between God and us. Many of us try to get back to God on our own, but we fail. Even if we do many good things, our sin is still there. The result of sin is death. But God did for us what we could not do for ourselves, that is, to bridge the gap between us and Him. He did that by taking our death penalty upon Himself when Jesus Christ died on the Cross in our place. It is not enough just to know this. We have to act on it by admitting that we have sinned, and that we need His forgiveness and leadership in our lives.
The question is: Are you willing to accept Jesus into your life now?
