Time to Know the Gospel

There is a double basic message in the Bible. God’s first message demands your holiness and obedience and announces his judgment on disobeyers. Even people who’ve never cracked the Book know something about that, thanks to their consciences.

You have a lot of that negative message in your head already, don’t you? It’s the voice that tells you you’re worthless, a failure, a loser, and ugly and fat and friendless besides.

What we do not know by nature is the gospel. We do not know there’s hope. Someone needs to tell us that. Someone needs to tell us there’s love for the loveless, beauty for the homely, and truth for liars. There’s forgiveness for sinners, wisdom for fools, and kindness for crabby jerks. Paul tells you what the gospel is in Romans 5:8:God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Did you know that? If so, it’s not because you’ve figured it out by yourself. It’s because God revealed it to you in his Word. Forgiveness of your many sins, comfort for your troubled heart, hope for your exhausted spirit, and immortality for your dying body are all his gifts. Who do you know that needs to hear this comforting message?


Don’t Fear the End: Your Hope of Heaven Is Secure

Everyone fears death on some level. Even if we’re firmly rooted in Christ, there’s so much that’s unknown about what we’ll experience. And then comes judgment, which is another thing that can cause anxiety.

But unless Jesus returns first, death is something we’ll all experience. So we want to help you face death without fear by sending you our new book, Don’t Fear the End: Your Hope of Heaven Is Secure.

This book shows you how to live fearlessly, knowing your assurance comes from Jesus who has secured your salvation from beginning to end.

Don’t Fear the End is our thank-you for your donation to help take the timeless truths of God’s Word to more people all over the world through Time of Grace. Request your copy today!
