How Good is the Good News? It causes the (spiritually) blind to see. Luke 7:22-23 The deaf to hear. The mute to praise God’s glory. The poor to be rich. The sick to be healed. The slave to be free. The defiled to be clean. The persecuted to receive comfort.
It Brings Us the King of Kings The message of sin condemned. Rom. 8:3 The calling of enemies to Christ. Rom. 5:10 The news of gifts to citizens. Eph. 4:11
It Bans Diverse People Into One Kingdom (Gal. 3:28) Slave and Free Male and Female Rich and Poor “Red, Yellow, Black, and White” It causes all to be one. Eph. 2:14
It Transforms Sinners into the likeness of their Savior (Eph. 4:17-24) From hate to love From fear to confidence From envy to contentment From anxiety to peace
It Assures Like No Other Promise “For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38–39)
