The Bad News

“Obviously, the law applies to those to whom it was given, for its purpose is to keep people from having excuses, and to show that the entire world is guilty before God. For no one can ever be made right with God by doing what the law commands. The law simply shows us how sinful we are.” (Romans 3:19-20 )

The Good News

We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are. For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in his grace, freely makes us right in his sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed his life, shedding his blood.” (Romans 3:22-25 a)

Living by God’s Power

“For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power.” (1 Corinthians 4:20 )

“For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes:” (Romans 1:16 )

Preach the Gospel to Yourself

“For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.” (2 Corinthians 5:21 )

Faith Comes by Hearing

“So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.” (Romans 10:17 )

When We Preach it to Ourselves, We Will Preach it to Others

“…out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.” (Luke 6:45 )
