The Gospel's Good News
The following verse justifies why the Gospel is called “The Good News”.
Ephesians 2:8 (NIV)
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God”.
This grace was granted to us following the blood that Jesus shed on the cross to wash all our sins. By this incredible sacrifice we can all be reassured that our debt to God the Father for all our committed sins has been fully paid.
However, In order that such debt can be accepted, we must strongly and sincerely express our faith in Jesus through an intimate private prayer that we articulate clearly and distinctly.
This sincere prayer could be like this:
“Father, I know that I have broken Your laws
and that my sins have separated me from You.
I am so sorry.
I want to turn away from this life of sin to be with You.
Dear God, forgive me,
and help me to completely turn away from sin.
I believe with my soul and with all my strength
that Your Son Jesus Christ
accepted to be humbled by coming to this earth 2,000 years ago.
He was crucified
and shed His blood to wash away all our sins so that
You may accept our soul into your heavenly Kingdom.
He died, was buried and rose from the dead after 3 days.
He ascended to heaven in the presence of His apostles
and is currently with You listening to my prayer.
I gladly invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life
and to reign in my heart.
Thank you Jesus for Your great sacrifice which I accept with joy
and I thank you for sending Your Holy Spirit
to help me obey You and do Your will
for the rest of my life.
In the name of Jesus, I pray.
