Hello, My name is David Hibbert, and I’ve got some good news for you!
Here’s another way that Paul Sohn explained the gospel – the good news of Jesus Christ.
We need to understand that it’s not enough to merely believe the right things about God, or to just attend church. Doing these things is like studying the science of aviation, and then hanging around in airports. We can learn all about the physics of flight, know which airlines have the safest record, pick the best airplane to fly in, reserve our flight, drive to the airport, go to the gate, and double check the flight crew’s credentials. But it does us no good unless we get on the plane.
Knowledge alone won’t get us anywhere. We have to act on what we know. We have to climb on board the airplane, trusting that it will take us where we want to go.
Similarly, it’s not enough to just know all about Christianity. We can study the Bible until we are an expert, go to church, and even get involved in ministry, and yet not have a relationship with Christ.
We must eventually take a step of faith and get on board Christianity, by receiving the forgiveness Jesus purchased on the cross and entrusting our life and future to Him. That’s what it means to become a real Christian.
