The word "gospel" means "good
It is the good news about Jesus Christ.
But, for there to be good news you first
need to understand why it is good news.
What happens when you break the law?
You must pay the penalty. Yes, in this world
it is possible to get away with it and not get caught. But
God knows everything. He even knows your thoughts. You can't
"get away with" breaking God's laws.
you broken any of God's laws?
The Ten Commandments are to the right. These
summarize God's laws. If you have ever told a lie; or taken
sometrhing that does not belong to you; or looked with lust
(Jesus says lust is adultery in your heart); or been unjustly
angry at someone (Jesus says that anger is murdering them
in your heart); then you have broken God's law.
If you break just one law (that's called
sin), you must pay the penalty for breaking God's law. Since
God is infinate the penalty is infinate -- eternity
Here is the Good News!
You must pay the penalty you've earned
for breaking God's laws. But, what if you could find someone
who would pay that penalty for you? The problem is that it
is an infinate penalty. There is no human who can pay your
penalty. But God can.
The Good News is that God has paid the penalty you've earned.
Jesus, who is God, died on the cross paying
the penalty you owe for sin. He was dead and buried. Then
three days later He rose from the dead show you that everything
He promise is true. There is life after death! You can
have that life!
This is a free gift from God. Now
you have a choice to make. If you accept this gift, it is
yours. But if you reject it, then you must pay the penalty
you've earned for sin. That means eternity in the lake of
fire (hell). Please... turn away from disobeying God (sinning)
and trust Jesus to give you
If you believe Jesus is God; that Jesus
died to pay your penalty in full for sin (there is nothing
more you need to do); and that Jesus rose from the dead showing
us there truly is life after death... then praise the Lord!
You have accepted God's gift. You have a new life with Christ
living in you.
We invite you to tell
Him how you feel about this Good News and your new life.
Steps For New & Growing Christians (Living Waters
If you do not believe Jesus died to pay
the penalty for your sin; If you do not believe Jesus
rose from the dead; If you believe in a different Jesus (such
as the Jesus of the LDS church, the Jehovah's Witnesses' Jesus,
or other Jesus' that don't exist); If you don't believe in
God; If you are Muslim, Hiundu or Buddhist. Then, please consider
carefully what you are reading on this web site. You don't
need to go to church. You don't need to be baptized. You don't
need to say a prayer. Just believe that God (Jesus) died to
pay your penalty for sin in full. Believe that your sin, past
and future, has been completely washed away by Jesus' death
2000 years ago. Trust Jesus for eternal life.
