Romans: “The Gospel of Jesus Christ: Hear It! Believe It! Live It!”
God’s Word, found only in the pages of the Bible, is the key to understanding the meaning of life in this world, and the only reliable source of the knowledge of God other than His creation and Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God! Jesus said, “This IS eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent” (John 17:3). More than 5 billion people on the earth do not know God, and of the more than 2 billion who claim to know Him, a growing number do not truly know the God who reveals Himself in His Word as the sovereign God of creation who planned the salvation of His elect from before the creation of the world. Ignorance is not bliss! Living in God’s world without the knowledge of God leaves people vulnerable to lies and deception, imagining they can believe whatever they want, think whatever they want and do whatever they want, and live life “their way,” without God … living for themselves and for the things of this world … and still, all will be well. Experience proves otherwise, but the bulk of humanity marches onward toward the judgment of the God they do not know. The only solution is the Gospel of Jesus Christ!! The Gospel is good news to those who hear it, believe it and live it. In fact, the proclamation of the Gospel is the calling of all those who by God’s grace have come to know Him and to believe in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The Gospel is all about God because this world is all about God. While many, even in the church today, present a man-centered message, the Bible is all about God and how to know Him, love Him and serve Him, now and forever! Have you heard the Gospel? Have you believed the Gospel? Are you living out the Gospel as a disciple of Jesus Christ? Discover the purpose of your life in this world as you come to understand that it’s all about God!!
