Good News For Today 12 Michael McGee (2:40 min).
Hello, I’m David Hibbert, and I’ve got some good news for you!
Here’s how Pastor Michael McGee explained the gospel – the good news of Jesus Christ. One second after we die, it will be too late to determine our eternal destiny. However, the Bible says that we can be ready now to meet life’s ultimate end, if we do three things. First, we Admit that we are a sinner. The Bible says that “… all have sinned …” (Romans 3:23) and “The wages of sin is death …” (Romans 6:23”. None of us are perfect – we have all done wrong, and no sinner can enter heaven and stand before a holy God. So how do we get there? Second, we Believe (or Trust) that Christ died for us. The Bible says that “… while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8). The Bible also says that “… if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved …” (Romans 10:9). We must place our full trust in what Christ did for us, and ask Him to change our desires into His. This is called Repentance – desiring God’s direction for our life now. And then third, we Claim God’s Promise and trust Jesus Christ as our Savior. The Bible says, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13). The Bible also says, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved.” (Acts 16:31). And finally, the Bible says, “…but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23). So if we call on the Lord Jesus Christ, and trust that He is our only hope of heaven, He will save us from our sins and give us eternal life. So if you understand your need for salvation – why not pray to Him, right now, for your forgiveness, and trust in Him for eternal life? (1 John 5:11-13). And that’s your Good News For Today!
