The gospel and us

The gospel and us.

Dictionary defines gospel as Good news or tidings, especially the message of salvation preached by Jesus Christ and the apostles. Let us ask what is the good news and if there is good news then there must be bad news. I will try to be brief but at the same time try to present what is important.

Let us look at ourselves, I believe we will notice something good and bad about  ourselves. If we are all good then we have nothing to worry but the truth is we sin or violate God's laws at least once or more everyday.In one year alone we could have 365 sins minimum. We can confess those but God gave the best solution, that is He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. How do we know Jesus died for us ? I believe Jesus is the only person in the whole world for all time who died as a criminal without committing a single sin or in other words He is sinless. Jesus willingly accepted His punishment and death for us. He died for us, for our sins.

Our rejection of Jesus means we rather pay for our sins ourselves, which means death and separation from God for eternity.

What should we do then ? Here is what the Bible reveal. All of us have sinned (Romans 3:23) and the wages of that is death (Romans 6:23) but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6:23).

How can we have this eternal life ? We can have this by having Jesus with us or in us. We can not stay in sin and be with Jesus at the same time. But as Christians we still sin , don't we ? The answer is we do not continue in sin, sooner or later we overcome sin through the Holy Spirit who resides in us when we trust and believe in Jesus.

I believe if we truly repent of our sins and would like to know and have Jesus that God will send somebody to us, a priest, a pastor, a believer.

Have you experienced this life in Jesus ? Pray and ask for God to help you and God will reveal more to you.

If you sense the urge to pray to God, do it now, don't wait any longer. The simplest prayer is God help me, i need You, save me from my sins through Your Son Jesus Christ.Help me live for You from now till forever.
