The Real Truth
Are You a Good Person?
When you examine your words, thoughts and deeds, can you truly say that you are free from sin? Let me provide you with the opportunity to hear the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus has commanded all men, everywhere, to repent of their sins and believe the gospel (Mark 1:15). In order to repent of your sins, you must learn to “turn away” from them. Christ is the answer through His sacrifice when He paid for your sins, by dying on the cross and His miraculous resurrection (Romans 6:23).
Through His resurrection, Jesus grants all righteous men a loving and eternal life with God (John 14:19). You are compelled to turn away from sinful acts including lying, stealing, adultery, envy and greed. A man is judged on both thoughts and deeds.
If you owed a million-dollar fine and went to court to be judged, you probably could not pay that fine. The ONLY way the judge can let you go free and still be righteous is for someone else to pay your fine on your behalf. If I had a million dollars and came into the courtroom, just before the judge was about to sentence you, and said, “Your honor, I am paying his fine for him so he doesn’t have to suffer the consequences of the law he broke. I’m doing this because I love him.” In doing this, the judge MUST allow you to go free because your fine has been paid!
In addition, in doing that for you, your attitude toward me will change forever! If I asked you, “Will you do this for me?” You would likely show gratitude for the fine I paid for you. If you did something to offend me, you would tell me you are sorry and you would try not to do that anymore. Do you see where I am going with this? This scenario describes biblical faith and repentance.
Jesus has the righteousness you need, the payment for the fine you owe, and eternal life you so desperately need! Do you believe this? Jesus said, “If you love me, keep my commandments” (John 14:15). If you believe Jesus did all this just for you, you will love Him and serve Him. James said, “Faith is dead without works” (James 2:17) Jesus lived, died and rose for you, just so you could have a right standing with God! Has this news changed your attitude toward God and your sin? If so, then help me spread the good news of the Gospel to the rest of the world because Jesus, the One who paid our massive sin debt, commands us to “preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).
