For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins.Romans 3:23-24
Justified by Christ
Every person in this world has sinned and gone against God. We are born into sin, we continue sinning as we grow, until we meet the Savior. We are not able to meet the standards of a holy God on our own. We can never be good enough to get ourselves into heaven. There had to be a way, a bridge, to connect us to God. Jesus became that bridge. God, in his grace, sent His son to die on the cross for our sins. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ freed us from the burdens of our sins and the punishment we deserved. This is the good news about Jesus and the gospel.
This is also the news that we need to tell the world. They don’t understand what sin is and how it impacts them and their eternal life. We hold the key, the answer. Only when they understand their sins and what Christ did for them, can they understand the freedom that he gives and live in that freedom. So share the gift you have been given and tell the world the good news about Jesus.
A Prayer to Remember
There are many people in my life who don’t know you. Give me the courage to share the good news about the freedom you have given me. Amen.
