More about the greatest news ever told

The Gospel is not something I just believe. I mean really. It's the truth. It's real. It happened and it's happening. It's the reason for all of this! Without it, where would I even be?MOst inportant I am not ashamed of it. It's one thing that I am clearlly transfomed by it. It's totally re-done everything in this world!
You get saved. Then hey, what's up? You keep sinning. Over and over again you sin. Wait, does this Gospel not work for me?
Why have I not changed? well...

Well, God sees you. He knew you would continue to sin after you were saved. Is that not why he saved you? There will always be those messy moments. The cross was because God knew you would continue to sin again and again. He loves us to the point he made the cross happen. He knew we would mess up again and again that is why Jesus died because He loves us and knows how messy we would be.

I am shaking because His love is too great to bear. Too great to know. He came to save me from my sins. To get us eternal life. He loves us beyond measure. Don't you get the point? He loves us so much that even though he knew we would sin He sent Jesus!!!!

It's all about the cross! Jesus did not just die that day. He took on all the wrath of God so we would have none. If you are united in Christ, then there is no more wrath. It's all gone! There is no wrath, no more sin!

Christ looks at us and sees us as a beautiful creation with no sin. It's all gone. The whole human race barely understands this, but in Christ our sin is gone! There is no regret. Now we do need to try to be faithful by obeying the Lord's commands, but we will mess up. We do every single day. But there is no more sin, no more wrath. That is why there was the cross! It's the whole point of history. The whole turning point in all history. The cross was the biggest thing that ever happened and ever will. Jesus lived a perfect life and bore the wrath of God so you could be saved. So you could be saved.

We are His portion and He is our prize,

Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,

If grace is an ocean, we're all sinking.

So Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss,

And my heart turns violently inside of my chest,

I don't have time to maintain these regrets,

When I think about, the way...


And it just gets better, doesn't it?

            "Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. But the angel said to the women, "Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you." So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. And behold, Jesus met them and said, "Greetings!" And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.""


(Matthew 28:1-10 ESV)
It would be unfair not to tell you what we have become. The church had so many times forgotton what we are fighting for. Babtism does not save. Praying does not save. Going to church does not save. Jesus saves. ANd without Jesus you cannot please God. There is no way apart from him to please God. Hell is real. But so is heaven. AND SO IS JESUS AND THERE IS SO MUCH HOPE IN HIM! IT IS OVERWHELMING!!!
Life is more than it seems. It's a love story about a God who LOVES you. He will never ever let you down. He will never ever forsake you. You are his beloved that he did everything in hsi power to save you. Your now His and never can be anything else. Who in this world then can hurt you? He is with us forever and if our God is for then who can ever stop us?????????????????????????
