The good news of Jesus is real! He came to us. He lived a perfect life as an example for us to follow. On the cross, He conquered sin! With His resurrection, He destroyed death! He paved the way to right relationship with the Father! That’s the message you’ve seen this week. But hearing the good news isn’t enough. We have to admit that we are broken and sinful. We have to stop trusting in ourselves or worldly things to escape our brokenness. We must ask God to forgive us. We have to turn from sin and trust in Jesus—that’s called repentance. And when we believe, we receive new life through Jesus. God turns our lives in a new, joyful, peaceful, purposeful direction. We are restored for our good and His glory.
