Let us never stop remembering and proclaiming the Gospel:⠀
God knew and loved us before He even created us. But, we have fallen. We are born sinners, unworthy to face our holy God who rightly and justly declares the wages of sin is death. ⠀
But, our triune God (1 God, 3 Persons) did not want us to perish, so God the Father sent His only Son to pay the penalty we could not pay on our own. By the power of the Spirit, He rose from the dead after three days, overcoming death and all sins once and for all!
This gift of grace is available to ALL who put their faith in Christ, believing in their hearts and confessing He is Lord! 🙌🏻🙌🏿🙌🏽 When we put our faith in Christ, we are forgiven and we receive the same Holy Spirit that raised Christ from the dead. He makes our hearts His dwelling place and changes us from the inside out.⠀
Faith in Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation. He promises new life now, and eternal life in Heaven. All other roads lead to destruction, and ultimately, death and Hell. This can both be a joyful and difficult truth to accept, but we can trust our God is always good. He is just and His ways are higher than ours.⠀
Jesus does not save because we are amazing, worthy, enough, or because we’re relatively good people, or because we were baptized into the “right” denomination as an infant. It has nothing to do with us and everything to do with Him.⠀
Christ saves because HE is amazing, HE is worthy, HE is enough, HE is good, and HIS Spirit is the mark of genuine faith! We are saved because of HIS goodness! 🙌🏽🙌🏿🙌🏻⠀
Friends, if you have not put your faith in Christ, what are you waiting for?! I cannot imagine navigating all that’s happening in the world and the U.S. without Jesus, without the truth of the Bible – God’s living and active Word – grounding and guiding me. Say yes to Him today. Trust He is who He says He is. Humble yourself before Him. Confess your sins. Experience His great love for you. Pray, worship, and read the Bible as much as you can (ESV is a fantastic translation), and surround yourself with other strong believers.⠀
