LAMED: THE GOAD OF DISCIPLESHIP ( PART 7 )
THE BEGINNING OF A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD ( PART 3 )
- THE GOSPEL IS ALL ABOUT OURSELVES.
The Bible tells us we came into this world as natural- born rebels against God.
As children of Adam and Eve, we inherited their sin nature and our track record shows how we have sinned in thought, word and deed.
The penalty of our rebellion against God is death – essentially a separation of our souls and bodies at our physical death and a separation from our loved ones. But spiritual death is worse – an eternal separation from God and the eternal life He gives.
As spiritually-dead people we do not have it in us to save ourselves.
It points to our need for a Saviour in Christ.
Father God, Your Word makes it clear we are unable to self-rescue. This is terrible if not the worse news ever! Yet in Your mercy and Grace, You have planned a way out for us…through Jesus our Lord and Saviour. And this indeed is the GOSPEL of the GOOD NEWS!
