Good News about Who Jesus Is

Most of us have heard a lot about Jesus. But do you realize that Jesus Christ was the most unique person to have ever lived on earth? Through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit, Jesus was conceived and born through the Virgin Mary. Therefore, Jesus Christ was 100% man and 100% God, united in one person. Jesus claimed to be God. His profound teaching, sinless character, amazing miracles and triumphant resurrection from the dead all verify that claim. God’s good news begins with the unique person of Jesus. He became a man for you to experience all of the good and bad of your daily life! He understands how hard your life can be and the bad decisions you may have made in the past.


Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit(Matthew 1:20)


Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us." (Matthew 1:24)


"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."  (John 1:1 and 1:14)


Good News about What Jesus Did

Because Jesus knows how hard it is to live our daily lives and that all people make mistakes and bad decisions (also called sin), he came to earth to do a job for all of us. He came to die on the cross for our sins. That is good news because it means that any thought, word or action you have committed which violates God’s perfect Law has been paid for by Christ's death. Sin separates us from God and is the cause of spiritual death or disconnection from God. But Jesus took your punishment so you wouldn’t have to. But the good news does not stop there. On the third day after His death, Jesus Christ rose bodily from the dead. He corrected your condition of spiritual death by giving you His very life. A new life not based on philosophy or religion, but on the historical, objective events of Christ's death and resurrection.


For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23)


"Christ died for our sins…and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."
(I Corinthians 15:1, 3)


"For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit." ( I Peter 3:18)


The Best News about The Good News

The best news about all of this good news is that you don’t have to DO anything to earn God’s love and acceptance, it has all been DONE!! He is waiting for you to stop trying to be good, stop trying to look acceptable in His eyes, stop trying to keep religious rules and rites to earn forgiveness…YOU CAN’T DO IT!! This is true because God’s standard is 100% perfection. Let’s face it; none of us has been perfect. So God devised a better way, the way of GRACE. Instead of doing, God asks you to trust in what Christ has done for you. Your pardon from sin and death are not based on what you do for God, but received by trusting in the person and provision of Jesus Christ by faith alone. HE ALREADY HAS FORGIVEN YOU and is waiting for you accept this awesome news!!


For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9)


But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name (John 1:12)


So, what are you waiting for? Can you think of any reason why you should not receive your pardon from sin and death? If you believe the good news of Christ's person and provision, then please receive your spiritual pardon from sin and death as a free gift. Turn from your self-trust (I can DO something to make God forgive me) to trusting in Christ alone (He has DONE everything I need). You can do that by praying this simple prayer:


"Dear God, I believe that Jesus is the God/man. I believe He died for my sins and rose again. Right now, I will stop trusting in what I can do to earn heaven, and put my complete trust in what Jesus Christ has done for me in His death and resurrection. Lord Jesus, I trust You alone for my forgiveness and eternal life."


If you prayed, placing your trust in the person and provision of Jesus Christ, the good news of forgiveness of sins and eternal life is yours!


"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life." (John 5:2)


that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)
