The Good News

The good news of Christ is the power of God. That is a statement unbelievable to the person who has not experienced it. Yet, the testimonies of those who have experienced the power of God in Christ are evidence within themselves. To know the power of the gospel is to believe the good news forever! "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes" (Romans 1:16).

The good news is Christ crucified to take away all of your sins. The Judge of all mankind declares every believer justified at the cross of Jesus. Your sin debt has been paid in full. Gone! Your sins are gone. The sins of all who believe are gone.

The good news is the power of God in the resurrection of Christ. He accepted the sacrifice of His Son for your sins. He declares it to all at the empty tomb. Resurrection power conquers the wages of sin known as death. The universal enemy of all men everywhere was defeated in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. That's good news for all who believe.

The good news is the power of God with the Holy Spirit in every believer. Resurrection power changes your heart through the risen Christ. God's power changes your mind to understand the good news. Resurrection power changes your will to desire Jesus now and forever. One day, resurrection power will raise you from the dead, with a glorified body like the risen Christ, if you believe the good news.
