“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV)
The very heart of the gospel is that God entered human history in the person of Jesus Christ. It is a wonderful truth that speaks to us about the love that God has for humanity.
The fact that Christ can identify with us and us with Him opens the door to eternal life to whosoever will. Jesus Christ came to take you from failure and despair into a place where you can reach spiritual maturity. When that happens, your life will change. You can face your problems from an entirely new perspective and a new attitude.
When Jesus Christ came to this world, a world that had been touched by sin, He came to save us from our personal sin. He came to say I care personally about you. That means if you embrace Jesus as your Savior and Redeemer you can be forgiven of your sin and your life can change. The good news is to never be the same again. The gospel truly is good news for as we receive Him into our heart, everything in our life is made new.
God Bless, Pastor Rick
