Good News For Today 01 Author Unknown (2:09 min).
Hello, I’m David Hibbert, and I’ve got some good news for you! Here’s how one man explained the Gospel – the good news of Jesus Christ: God created us to live in perfect fellowship with Him. He created us to live in an intimate love relationship with Him. However, because we have all sinned, we have all rebelled against His holy laws, and so we have rebelled against Him. And because God is perfectly holy – in our sinful condition, we are now separated from Him. And if we die in that condition, we will be separated from Him for all of eternity. But God sent Jesus, His completely righteous Son to earth, to pay for the price of all of our sins, and so through the sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross, on our behalf, all of our sins were atoned for, and we can experience forgiveness of all of our sins. As a result, we can experience His righteousness that He provided for us, we can be in right standing with God, and we can live in fellowship with God, while on this earth, and for all of eternity. The way we receive His righteousness, and God’s forgiveness, is by turning from sin, which means that we reject our own way of living, and our own way of trying to make ourselves acceptable to God, and instead, we put our full hope and confidence in the work of Jesus Christ on our behalf on the cross, we accept His sacrifice for our sins, and we choose to live for Jesus. And that’s your Good News For Today!
