It's not about escaping hell, it's much bigger than that!

Later on, after John was arrested, Jesus went into Galilee, where he preached God’s Good News. 15 “The time promised by God has come at last!” he announced. “The Kingdom of God is near! Repent of your sins and believe the Good News!” Mark 1:14-15, NLT

Jesus continued the message where John the Baptist left it. But it's probably not what you think. It's not a message of religion - do's and dont's but of course all manners of life include those. No, this is a message of faith. It is a calling of faith. It is to become a person who lives by faith. It is about living an inspired life of faith.

The Gospel is not about getting out of Hell... it's not about fire insurance... it's about entrance into fellowship with God. It's really good news! Real faith zooms by escaping from something and looks more like moving toward something else. It's like: "Are you kidding me, I can have a personal relationship, a fellowship, a communion with the Creator of all things?" Yes, it's that kind of good news!

Now let me ask you. If you by faith can have this kind of daily experience, would you want to learn more and more and more? Of course you would; otherwise, you must be spiritually brain dead!

Sin (all things that fall short of God's perfection) is destructive like cancer. Sin is not a slave, it is a master. The good news of Jesus Christ is an opportunity to change the address of your soul from the residence of sin to the residence of heaven. Once your heart address has been changed (repentance), then your transformation continues as you continue to learn how heaven operates.

Jesus' message in modern words: here I am as promised many moons ago. Believe it, receive it, rejoice in it, live it, for you are now friend. Believe. Have faith. If this is alive in your heart, it changes everything. It's a game changer. The most amazing story ever told... God visits earth in Jesus Christ and says... follow me... it doesn't end here! 

Blessings.
