THE GOOD NEWS AND THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
God commands Christians to go and tell and spread the Gospel. Romans 10:13 says, “For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile – the same Lord is Lord of all, and richly blesses all who call on him, for, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'”
The Heart of the Gospel can be found in John 3:16 (NIV) when Jesus said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
In John 3:17 (NIV), Jesus goes on to say, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through Him.” That is the best news to hear and to believe. Put your trust in Jesus.
Beautiful Feet of Those Who Bring the Good News
To quote Corrie Ten Boom, she said, “How can I not speak when I know the Words of Life.” Corrie Ten Boom is one of many throughout the ages who have brought the Gospel to people all over the world. Her feet and others who have told and are telling of Jesus and His sacrifice in dying for our sins are beautiful!
The prophet, Isaiah, records in Isaiah 52:7 (NIV), “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns.'”
(This scripture is a reference to messengers who left the battle to bring news of the battle’s outcome – the deliverance from Babylonian exile.)
The prophet, Nahum, records in Nahum 1:15 (NIV), “Look on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news, who proclaims peace! Celebrate your festivals, O Judah, and fulfill your vows. No more will the wicked invade you; they will be completely destroyed.”
(This scripture is a reference to the good news of deliverance from the Assyrian threat.)
The Apostle Paul writes in Romans 10:14-15 (NIV), “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!'”
(This is a reference to deliverance from sin through the Gospel of Christ, the Good News.)
You, who may be reading this blog post, if you don’t know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, I implore you to come to Jesus and receive Him, turn from your sins, and ask Jesus to save you.
