The Good News about Jesus the King
The Good News (Gospel)
"For God so loved the world that he sent his only son, that whoever believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." -John 3:16
The good news that I desire to share with you is simply this: Jesus, the eternal and pre-existing son of God, came down to Earth and died to pay the price for our own wrongdoings (sin) against God. He was raised from the dead, defeating sin and death, making it possible for us to also have eternal life with him. After raising to life, Jesus returned to the right hand of God the Father where he now reigns as King.
Jesus, whose name is "Yeshua" in the original Hebrew language, lived a perfect life in obedience to God the Father. We each have a VERY important decision to make: Are we going to pledge our allegiance to Yeshua, the Christ, whom God has appointed King over all of creation? Or are we going to live our lives in devotion to worldly things as slaves to our own passions and desires. Those who live their lives in service to King Yeshua (Jesus Christ) and his Kingdom will get to enjoy the everlasting life that has been promised them when the King returns. It will be a Kingdom free from sin, suffering, and death. Those who refuse to give their allegiance to the King will have no part in the coming Kingdom.
And what does it look like to pledge your allegiance to Yeshua as King and be a servant of the Kingdom? It looks like loving your neighbor and seeking the good of those around your above your own wants and desires. It means forgiving others with the same abundant grace and mercy that you yourself have received. It means giving the glory to God for all that is good in the world and submitting to Him in obedience. It looks like caring for the poor and downtrodden, while also sharing with them the same Good News that you have received: We are all forgiven and welcomed into the Kingdom of God when we pledge our allegiance to its King, the Lord Jesus Christ.
