The Bad News
Friend – we are all on the road to eternity. Where you will spend eternity will be decided in this life. You will stand before the holy, loving, God of all creation and give an account for your life (Hebrews 9:27). God is not a liar, thief, blasphemer, fornicator, adulterer, or murderer, for he is holy and altogether righteous. You were created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27); you know it is wrong (a sin) when you lie, steal, take God’s name in vain, commit sexual immorality, or even hate someone! Because you are a sinner who has broken God’s law, as a just judge, God will punish you in Hell. God’s eternal punishment for sinners is actually righteous justice because we have sinned against Him, an infinite being.
The Good News
But God, in perfect love, sent His only Son Jesus into the world to save sinners (1 John 4:14). To satisfy God’s wrath toward sinners, God crushed His Son on a cross (Isaiah 53:6). Jesus took on the punishment sinners deserve, then rose from the grave victorious 3 days later! In exchange for the wrath they deserve, sinners can have the righteousness of Jesus by repenting and putting their faith in Jesus and what He has done (2 Corinthians 5:21, Mark 1:15). This is a display of God’s grace and mercy toward sinners.
Friend, call on the name of the Lord today — and be saved (Romans 10:13). Trust that the only righteousness you have before God is that righteousness which is found in another, Jesus Christ.
