Hearing good news can be very exciting – a new baby, a new job, a marriage. The arrival of good news lifts us above our problems, it gives fresh hope and brings new reasons to live.
At the time that Jesus was born, the angels were eager to tell that he was good news for all humankind.
Jesus was good news to all humankind because he brought the solution to our greatest problem, sin. Sin is not living to God’s standard and the terrible effects of it are separation from God and eternal death. Jesus took the punishment for our sin to solve our greatest problem of sin; that is why he is good news.
These famous words from the Bible tell us that whoever believes in him will have eternal life.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Eternal life is not something that starts when you die. It starts the moment you believe and decide to commit the rest your life to God. Eternal life is the beginning of a personal relationship with God.
