What does the Gospel mean to you?
August 6, 2012
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
There was a man walking on the road of life, and he fell into a deep pit full of mud and slime. He tried to get out, but he couldn’t. So along came a religionist, who saw the man in the pit and said, “What on earth are you doing in the pit? You should be ashamed of yourself for being down there. If you’d have played by the rules, you wouldn’t have fallen in!” And the religionist walked by and left him there.
And along came the humanist, who saw the man in the pit and said, “Be strong! You have a spark of divinity in you. So believe in yourself, get up, and come on up out of the pit.” So he believed in himself, strained and struggled, but still couldn’t get out of the pit.
Then came Jesus, who saw that man in the pit, took off His royal robes, and got down in the pit with all the filth and dirt. He reached out to that man and pulled him out of the pit Himself. And that man, broken and wounded by his fall, was healed, stood up, and walked with Jesus.
That’s what Christianity is all about. That’s the message of the Gospel. Christ pulls you out of the pit of sin and into life with Him. Trust in Him today, and live your live to share that message with others!
THANK GOD THAT HE HAS OFFERED YOU RESCUE FROM YOUR SIN SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE LIFE IN CHRIST!
