Plain 4 Facts

The Gospel of Facts…
     The Gospel of God is a Gospel of facts. They are so definitely stated in the Word of God that none need mistake them. The wonder is that many do. First of all, it is clearly and distinctly stated that:

     1. All Are Sinners. Both Old and New Testaments declare this fact. “There is not a just man upon the earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not” (Ecclesiastes 7:20). “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12).

     2. God Loves Sinners. This is also a blessed fact. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). “The world” includes every sinner in it today. To give it a personal application—God loves you, He loves me, just as we are. To believe this fact dispels the thick darkness that disturbs many minds regarding God, His character, and His doings. Can you, do you say, “I believe that, sinner as I am, God loves me”?

     3. Christ Died For Sinners. “While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)—died on our account, giving Himself “a ransom for all” (1 Timothy 2:6). The Bible makes it clear beyond all doubt for whom Christ died. It was for “sinners.” It was for “all.” Nothing can negate or contradict this great fact. Do you believe it? Can you say, “The Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20)? This is how God wants you to appropriate it, to make it your own.

     4. All Sinners That Believe Are Saved. “All that believe are justified from all things” (Acts 13:39). “By grace are ye saved through faith” (Ephesians 2:8). This gives certainty. It leaves no room for doubt. “Are justified” and “are saved”— meaning now, at the present time. It is not a vague hope, but a grand certainty, a reality now. Doubt no more. Hesitate no longer. Believe these plain facts of God’s Word. As a needy sinner, trust the One who died for you and rose again as your personal Lord and Savior. The you “may know that ye have eternal life” (1 John 5:13), and enter into the enjoyment of His great salvation, which the Gospel proclaims.
