The Good News

It has really been on my heart to add a page to this blog that proclaims The Good News of Jesus Christ. Because of the damage that Calvary Temple does to the Gospel of Christ, it is important to offer God’s Truth to all who are seeking Him.

God loves you and wants you to experience the peace and life He offers. The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). He has a plan for you.

Being at peace with God is not automatic. By nature, we are all separated from Him. The Bible says, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). God is holy, but we are human and don’t measure up to His perfect standard. We are sinful, and “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23).

God’s love bridges the gap of separation between you and Him. When Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose from the grave, He paid the penalty for your sins. The Bible says, “‘He Himself bore our sins’ in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; ‘by His wounds you have been healed’” (1 Peter 2:24).

You cross the bridge into God’s family when you accept Christ’s free gift of salvation. The Bible says, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12).

To receive Christ, please consider the following:

  • Admit you’re a sinner.
  • Ask forgiveness and be willing to turn away from your sins.
  • Believe that Christ died for you on the cross.
  • Receive Christ into your heart and life.

Romans 10:13 says, “Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.” Here’s a prayer you can pray to receive Christ:

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe you died for my sins and rose from the dead. I trust and follow you as my Lord and Savior. Guide my life and help me to do your will. In your name, amen.”

Borrowed from Billy Graham

If you accepted Jesus into your heart, I do recommend finding either a good and true church to attend and grow in your faith or consider worshipping on-line.

I am not promoting any church in particular, but it is important to find a church that presents the Bible only, without any pressure to attend, “tithe”, or forsake family and friends.

I personally watch Cornerstone Chapel, Leesburg, VA’s services online. Pastor Gary Hamrick’s Easter service was hands down, one of the best presentations of The Good News of Jesus and His love that I have ever seen. This is what you are looking for to grow your faith and your walk with Jesus:

A Living Hope (April 1, 2018, Easter Sunday)

I am so thankful for the love of Jesus. No matter what, He has never left me, nor has He forsaken me.

Welcome to the family!
