BELIEVE THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL
Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV), “Christ hast redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written: Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree. That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
The good news of the Gospel is a substantial truth that makes us realize the bad news of who we were and how imminent and desperately we needed someone to redeem us from the curse of the law. Thank God for Jesus. God so loved us that He couldn’t have allowed us to continue under the weight of the mistake of Adam, and so He sent Jesus Christ to reconnect us to the blessing by such an amazing Grace. The gospel is so simple; it is all about the love of God. Do you believe the gospel? Have you accepted the love of God in Christ?
We may never enjoy the benefit of an instrument until we understand the tangible need for it. So also we may not fall at the feet of Jesus Christ until we understand the depravity of our own heart and the judgment that will be exerted by a just God in the end. Romans 3:10b tells us, “…There is none righteous, no not one.” The Bible goes on in Romans 3:20 to says, “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Keeping the Ten Commandments in its totality is not your justification before God. Men may be carried away by deeds, but not God. John 5:39 (NLT) says, “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to Me.” A diligent study of the Scriptures does not make God look into your direction either except you find and accept God’s love revealed in the person of Jesus Christ.
Dear friend, the Bible is clear in its terms and we must follow suit. There is only one way by which we have been redeemed from the curse of the law. It is Christ Jesus. Believe and trusting absolutely in Him gives us the benefits we ought to enjoy as children of the Most High God. You don’t have to suffer one more day, believe in Jesus Christ today!
FURTHER STUDY: Acts 15:11, “But we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved, even as they.”
CONFESSION: I BOLDLY CONFESS I AM REDEEMED FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW. I BELIEVE IN JESUS; I BELIEVE THE GOSPEL WITH ALL MY HEART, MIND AND SOUL. THEREFORE I AM FREE AND SAVED!
ACTION POINT: Believe in the grace of Jesus Christ.
ONE YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN: Job 5-7; Acts 8:1-25
