You may have heard the term “Gospel” before. That simply means “good news” and refers specifically to the good news about Jesus. God himself solved our sin problem when Jesus took on our human nature, lived the sinless life that we cannot live, and then suffered a terrible and cruel death on the cross, for our sake. How was it for our sake? Well, being sinless, and being God in flesh, he was able to take all of our sin and guilt upon himself and to take our place in enduring the full outpouring of God’s justice on my sin and yours. He died for us, and his resurrection from the dead proves that his sacrifice was acceptable. So, having taken our sin and died in our place, Jesus offers us his righteousness as a free gift, something we could never earn or deserve. This is what we call grace, and in God’s grace through Jesus we can receive hope, forgiveness, restoration, wholeness, and eternal life with him.
The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23
