“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Rom. 6:23
Gospel means good news and it is for all people. For all men have sinned. We are sinners. And the wages of sin is death, eternal death. Not that one ceases to exist, but that one’s eternal soul is eternally separated from God. But today, there is good news for you.
Jesus has prepared a gift for you that you can receive. You can receive the gift because Jesus gave His life on the cross for you. Our penalty of sin fell on Jesus and blood was forced from His body through violence. Jesus took our penalty of sin and died so that we can go free and have eternal life. Jesus rose from the dead on the third day. Today He can reconcile you to God. You can receive eternal life by believing in Jesus who, out of love, took your punishment.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
God bless you.
