Heard the Good News?

“Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people.  He sacrificed for their sins once and for all when he offered himself.”  Hebrews 7:27.

Jesus has taken care of our sin problem.  That’s what the Gospel is.

God sent Jesus on a rescue mission to save the world.  God loved the world.  He loves us.  He doesn’t want any of us to spend our after-life away from Him.

But God knew that we are all sinners and thereby unworthy of an eternity with Him.

Sin was the issue and the Good News is that God took care of our sins.

When Jesus died He took everyone’s sins with Him to death including yours and mine.

When God raised Jesus from the dead, your sins and mine were gone.  We have new life unencumbered by sin.

The act of Jesus made us acceptable for an after-life with God.  Our only part in achieving this status was to simply believe that it happened!

This is Good News yet some refuse to believe it.  On Judgment Day, their unbelief will earn them an after-life away from God.

“Lord Jesus, thank You for taking care of my sin problem.  Thank You for making me acceptable to God.  Enable me to connect with those in my family who have no interest in Your Good News.  They desperately need to believe what You have done for them.  Open their hearts and minds, I beg.”

I ask God to intervene in my family so that they will all recognize His Good News for what it is and then live according.
