According to Timothy Keller, he said “The Gospel is good news not advised. Advice is what we should do. The news is the report of what was done for us.” People spread bad news quickly, but the great news slowly. The good news is that we can do what Christ asked us to do today to spread the good news about the gospel and the resurrection. We can be a blessing to others and not just for ourselves, but also those around us. Matthew 28:19-20 says “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” The next level after the resurrection of Jesus Christ is to spread the good news about the kingdom of God. This is where we are going to start our journey into becoming more like Jesus. It’s time to get out there and do something different than what we have been used to do.
Many believers still live in fear nature that controls them like slaves, but forgot that God has made available the divine grace and mercy through His Son. The father sent His son to us many years ago to redeem and save us. Jesus Christ accepted the offer because of you and I. That is why the Bible said, “therefore, you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.” Galatians 4:7. You are no longer a slave to fear, but rather an ambassador for the gospel. We are called to live in light of God’s love. We are called to be witnesses of his love. That is our next level.
As you continue your daily activities during this Easter season, I want you to remember the good news that established the covenant between you and God as a Child and heirs of God. However, if you are an unbeliever, I want you to know that God made sacrifices on your behalf many years ago to change your name from fear to faith; from ignorance to knowledge. God has done something that seems impossible through our Lord Jesus Christ the Savior of the world. God gave us His only begotten son to break off the chain of slavery. That whosoever believes in him will not be controlled by the pressure of this world, but have the advantage of the JOY that flows like a river that the true Christian enjoys under the gospel that is filled with grace and mercy.
God knows who you are, and nobody can fix whatever goes wrong in your life unless He intervenes through His Son. He knows how great you are! He knows what you can accomplish for the Kingdom! Moreover, He knows the seed of potential in you. That is why God intervenes with the offer of calling you his Child so that you can step into the next level of freedom. Through this assurance the portion of your inheritance has increased and “the Spirit himself testifies with your spirit that you are a child of God. Roman 8:16
