The word gospel means “good news,” and the good news is that God loves us and desires to have a relationship with us. He made us for Himself. The sin in all our lives has prevented that kind of relationship, and no amount of works on our part can make it right. Only by the death of Jesus for our sins, and His resurrection – can we know God personally and intimately.
When we believe with our head, and trust with our heart, and call out to Him with our mouth, Jesus comes into our life – forever.
(John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10, 13, Revelation 3:20)
We turn away from the old life we’ve been living and begin the most exciting journey we’ve ever known: following Jesus.
