Who is this good news for?
To lost sinners, so to all since we are all sinners!
"It's not the healthy people who need a doctor, but the ones who are doing badly, I did not come to call righteous people, but fishermen to repentance." said Jesus.
If you are not convinced of your guilt before God, if you are not frightened at the prospect of the coming judgment, you reject that message as if it were not for you. You think you do not need it. We can only warn you urgently: your path of self-righteousness leads to perdition. So place yourself in the light of God to see you as you are. Change direction, REPENT, while there is still time!
John 14.6 : "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh to the Father but through me."
And what must be done to obtain one's forgiveness for oneself?
Nothing ! We can not do anything, but we have to believe. Grace is the FREE GIFT of God.
Acts 2.38 : "Peter said to them, Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
Obviously to believe in Jesus is to put in him all his confidence; it is to grasp for oneself what he is and what he has done; it is to apply to one's own sinful condition the value of his sacrifice.
John 6.10 : "For the will of my Father is that whoever discerns the Son and believes in Him, has eternal life."
Jesus Christ, like a lawyer, then takes our case in hand, we receive from then on the Holy Spirit. He awakens our conscience by the Word, enlightens us on our state and urges us to repentance.
We love the Lord because he loved us first. The call that Jesus addresses to us is individual. Jesus tells us: "You, follow me."
John 21.22 : "Jesus said to him," If I want him to stay until I come, what does it matter to you? You, follow me. "This word spread among the brothers that this disciple would not die.
Do not let more pass the time without discovering Jesus: One day come or we do not want to believe, and tomorrow does not belong to us!
Let's follow the Good Shepherd: The Lord Jesus Christ!
