The world is going to hell in a hand-basket. I’ve heard that terminology for years, and it’s often said with a sad sigh and usually given without any hope. It’s true, Satan wants the world to go to hell in a hand-basket, and he’s out to steal, kill, and destroy. But, I have good news, Jesus saves and gives eternal life.
We have been gifted The Good News to share the Good News about the Savior. “… whoever believes will in Him have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” ~ John 3:15-17 (NASB)
The offer made through God’s love, through the saving grace of Jesus, is GOOD NEWS! Accepting this gift isn’t just fire insurance against hell, Jesus gives abundant life, joy, hope, and life eternal in paradise.
Let’s make a difference. Let’s celebrate, happy dancing from the rooftops to share the Good News about our wonderful Savior. Let’s rise up to snatch the lost from the fire. Let’s live in such a way that people are drawn to the light of Christ shining within us. Let’s march toward hell for a heavenly cause and spread the Good News – Jesus saves. Jesus is the life, the truth, and the way to eternal life and heaven.
I have Good News, we have Good News, Jesus saves, Jesus saves, Jesus saves!
“When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit.” ~ Titus 3:4-5 (NLT)
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Romans 6:23 (AMP)
“By entering through faith into what God has always wanted to do for us—set us right with him, make us fit for him—we have it all together with God because of our Master Jesus. And that’s not all: We throw open our doors to God and discover at the same moment that he has already thrown open his door to us. We find ourselves standing where we always hoped we might stand—out in the wide open spaces of God’s grace and glory, standing tall and shouting our praise.” ~ Romans 5:1-2 (MSG)
