Greetings everyone, I come with fantastic news! News that overrides every telephone call, email, message on media, and letter in the mail that you have received. I encourage you to relinquish any belief you have that corresponds with defeat. The reason is that Jesus Christ has defeated sin and death on the cross. Through Him, we have victory over its oppression. All the adversity and brokenness in the world are a result of sin.
“O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:55-57)
For death and destruction, there is salvation. God provides us with healing and purpose for the broken and hopeless in this world. Those rejected and lonely receive acceptance in Christ and community among other believers. Grief, loss, insecurity, and instability are not beyond God’s help. For every injustice done to you, God responds righteously with justice. Jesus Christ offers a livelihood that is triumphant to anyone who believes in Him. If you want to live undefeated and victorious, come to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Salvation in Jesus Christ changes the trajectory of your life, bringing you transformation and healing. If you have not accepted Christ, I encourage you not to miss out on the greatest gift of life.
What is the Gospel? The gospel is a message of salvation from our sins and redemption through Jesus Christ.
“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
This grace-filled message shares the true story of humanity’s depravity and God’s loving and gracious intervention. Life as God’s word captures it follows the storyline of creation, fall, redemption, and restoration. God created this world with perfection, and sin was absent from it. God gave humankind one critical command to follow, and that was never to disobey Him. God understood that if they disobeyed Him, then sin would cause humanity to be separated from God forever. This choice resulted in losing a perfect relationship with God and life itself. Life is painful when what is truly good is stripped, and suffering occurs. The result of sin and rejecting salvation is eternal torment in hell forever. Unfortunately, humanity chose to sin, which is disobeying God. Thanks be to God that our God is of everlasting love and grace.
The gospel teaches us the true story of salvation’s deliverance and the glorious redemptive work God does in our lives to heal and fix what has broken. God’s intention for humankind is not to be left in a broken state destined to suffer in hell. God desires all who authentically accept Him into their hearts to be saved and healed.
