I. The Good News is that God Loves Us Unconditionally.
Romans 5:8 (NIV) declares, “…God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
The Message Bible puts it this way: “God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.”
Pastor Worth Williams: “When did God love you best? In the moment of your shining Christ-likeness or in the moment of your sinfulness?”
God loves me best always!
That’s the power of God’s unconditional love! It can do what no other power in heaven or on earth can do. Only His love can win the wayward heart and bring sinful men and women to saving faith. It turned unbelieving Cameroonians into passionate Christ-followers and it can do the same for us.
II. The Good News is that God’s Grace is Always Greater Than Our Sin:
Although I have been a believer since childhood, I have to acknowledge that I have done things that can only be described as evil—things I don’t want to remember, things I wish I could forget. Almost all of them involved hurtful things I did and said in a moment of anger.
Now you know the worst thing I ever did, but more importantly you know the best thing God ever did for me. He forgave me and gave me another chance!
III. The Good News is God Will Never Give Up On Us!
Philippians 1:6 from the Message Bible: “There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.”
