But each cooperates to share the love and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ with their audience. Isn’t that great.

Here’s one of our short messages which shares the truth about how God places the righteousness of His Son, Jesus Christ upon each person who, by faith, will receive this great gift.

[60 second Evangelism SONspot - CD138 #11, Real LIfe]

Friend, the good news about Jesus Christ is guaranteed by the very character of God. By faith, it has been applied to the spirits of men and women, boys and girls; and it has never failed to bring new life, with peace and joy and much more.

What are the main points of the gospel? Let’s review them together.

Point One: God created man to have a personal, trusting relationship with Himself.

He wants you to have a fulfilling, abundant life. He wants you to enjoy a personal relationship with Him.

Point Two: Many people in the world are missing this great relationship because...

In their self willed way they have chosen to reject God and go their own independent way, just as Adam did in the Garden. This is sin. The consequence is spiritual death.

But there’s good news!

Point Three: 1 Timothy (2:5-6a) says: "For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men."

Jesus Christ, God’s divine Son, came to earth in the form of man. Jesus lived a perfect, sinless life, thus providing the only sufficient sacrifice for the sins of mankind. You see, Jesus Christ paid the penalty for sin on that cross on Calvary. Thus, He bore the penalty for your sins. He ransomed you from bondage to sin. So, He's the only solution to man’s dilemma. He alone bridges the chasm of separation between sinful man and holy God.

He paid the penalty, but man must respond to God’s initiative. That's...

Point Four: Man must accept the gift of new life from Jesus. This comes as one trusts Jesus Christ by faith.
  • He must agree with God that he is a sinner...
    • in repentance turn from sin...
    • accept the truth that Jesus was his substitute for sin when he died on the cross...
    • believe that Jesus rose from the grave and lives today, and...
    • that He will come into your life...placing His righteousness upon us; and
    • giving us power over sin.

Friend, have you ever taken this step. If there's any doubt then pray with your heart...

"Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner and I need your forgiveness. I believe that you died for my sins, so I turn from my sins and invite you to come into my life. I trust you and accept you as savior, and will follow you as my Lord. Thank you for entering my life right now."

If you prayed that prayer, please, let us know. We want to help you grow in your new faith.
