The Good News of Jesus Christ

The Gospel
Are you good enough to go to heaven?

In this blog posting, I’ll be sharing with you both bad news and good news! 
Are you good enough to go to heaven?  You are probably thinking to yourself… “Yes, I’m good enough!  I haven’t killed anyone, haven’t robbed any banks, and I don’t do illegal drugs.  I’m much better than many other people.”
 
Now let’s look at God’s standard (God’s moral law) called the 10 commandments.  If God judges you by His standard (seen below) would you make it to heaven?
 
Exodus 20:1-17

The Good News of Jesus Christ

What is your FOUNDATION?

Matthew 7:24-29 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand:  and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell.

The Gospel
Pride vs. Humility

 
 
The Bible Says…
God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble. 
Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
James 4:6b,10
 
We are naturally very proud people.  We enjoy telling others about our good table tennis wins, about our accomplishments, and about the nice things that we have done.
 
The Gospel is Jesus Christ is a pride smashing thing to believe.  When you first hear it, it might sound bad.

Learn What God Wants From You!

Psalm 51:6b Behold, you delight in truth in the inward being
Many people today tell me that they follow God by going to church or praying or being nice.  Those are great things.  However, God is primarily concerned with the heart.  The Bible says that man’s heart is deceitful and desperately wicked.  Even though we might live externally good lives (according to what society tells us), we were born with sinful hearts.
