Great news of great joy! Deep worship!

And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call Him Jesus, for He shall save His people from their sins. Matthew 2:21

To save me from what?!!! That’s was my respond when I first heard of the gospel, the good news of Christ. I was like a dying man with incurable disease who have no clue of his condition. The gospel of Christ Jesus didn’t sound to my ears like good news, rather bad news , at best it meant nothing to me. Oh! what great news it is when we come in the realization of our sinful, dying and helpless condition.

I bring you good news of great joy…for there is born to you…a Savior who is Christ the Lord. Luke: 2: 10-11

How awesome is the announcement that in Bethlehem the Savior is born! Now as the years go by, it gets better better as I come to a greater understanding of not only from what He came to saved me…

Behold the virgin shall be with child and bear a Son , and they shall call His name Emmanuel which is translated “God with us”. Matthew 1:23

…but that His main purpose is to be with me! He wants to be with me?!!! and in order to be with me He became a man paying with His own blood for my sins?!!! This is the greatest news of the greatest joy!

when they saw the star they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, the saw the young Child with Mary His mother and fell down and worshiped Him. Matthew 2:10-11

I just want to be with Him! He is all I want! When I see that He wants to be with me and He did all that is necessary for that purpose, I rejoice with exceedingly great joy and I fall down in adoration at the feet of my sweet Savior in deep worship!

I celebrate Christmas/the gospel/Jesus my Savior, the Savior of the world!

The true gospel of Jesus Christ

The gospel is Jesus Christ himself, what He did on the cross and what He does in and through us. Everything that Christ is, and all that He did are the best news anyone could ever hear in this life. There is not and there will be no good news for us, in this life, which could be compared with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is true, since there is nothing that could be compared with Jesus Christ.

You might wonder, why is good news, what He did and who He is the Christ unto us? Well, all that He is and all that He did, He is and He did them all, for us. The gospel is good news for us is not good works from us. It is not what we do, but what He did. A preaching that tells us to become and do for God is not the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Such preaching is only necessary so we may realize our  lack and our inability to be and do what God requires from  us. We should never think that we could ever meet the requirements of God, since such a thought would lead us to despise the gospel of Jesus Christ. You see, the good news is that Jesus Christ is for us what we could never be.Also He did for us and does through us, what we could never do. If we think that we can meet the requirements of God, then there is no room in us for the gospel.

God loved us and gave to us His Son Jesus Christ. This is the pure gospel. If we add or subtract something from it, we will distort it. It might look like it, but will not be the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

Faith and acceptance of the gospel is the only thing we can do, nothing else. Jesus Christ was given by God the Father, that we might believe and receive Him, nothing else.
