The Good News!
The message of the Cross is the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ as found in the Bible:
We Have a purpose: To know God and Glorify Him.
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.: Genesis 1:1
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.´ 1 Corinthians 10:31
We have a problem: All men have chosen sin over serving their glorious Creator.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”Romans 3:23
We deserve punishment: Eternal separation from God in Hell.
”For the wages of sin is death;: Romans 6:23
“And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” Revelation 20:15
We are powerless: We cannot save ourselves.
“Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us” Titus 3:5
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: Ephesians 2:8
We have a pardon: Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Roman 5:8
“For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21
We have a promise: Eternal life in Heaven with God “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13
“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:13
