Jesus’ coming led to a cosmic change!
The Gospel means GOOD NEWS. The Good News is all about Jesus. Romans 2:1-5
The Good news of transformation is through faith, and for everyone! Romans 1:16-17
Everyone is a sinner and separated from God! His kindness is intended to turn us to him. Romans 2:1-4
We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. Romans 3:21-28
“BUT NOW….” is really good news! We get to share it with everyone!
The transforming good news is for everyone.
- Accept the good news of the gospel for yourself if you have not yet, and share your story with someone.
- Share the name of someone for whom you are praying who needs the good news. Begin to plan to share with them at an appropriate time.
