Romans is the book that maps out the GOOD NEWS from start to finish.
How can Romans 1:16 show up in your life tomorrow?
Is the righteousness of God going to be REVEALED in YOUR life because you have been believing some amazing good news you found in the book of Romans this week?
When a person believes good news from God concerning His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, …
…the righteousness of God is revealed, and this abounds to the glory of God.
What does a person look like when they REALLY BELIEVE such amazing GOOD NEWS???
Are you a good news person, or a bad news person??
The righteousness of God continues to be revealed more and more fully in your life as you RESPOND to all kinds of good news in Romans.
The response looks like laying aside the old man, being renewed in the spirit of your mind, and putting on the new man!
Believing will turn you into a hopeful person who can bear all things and give hope to the hopeless standing on the ground of total security you have!
It plays out in your being obedient to the corresponding commands in the New Testament to live according to each wonder.
A good news believer is merciful and wise in YOUR dealings with real people in your life!
Faith in the love of God in the heart of a good news believer turns into love for your brother.
People he comes across are more hopeful and joyful because of his works and words among them.
Let’s talk about that word “gospel”.
It means announcing good news.
Something that somebody didn’t know or realize before.
Good news is an announcement that gives people hope for a brighter future.
It’s good news because God offers His righteousness based on faith rather than on the works of the law.
Real true gifts are always good news.
We keep on needing to hear good news!
So do the people around you.
Good news that wipes out all the bad news.
Is your life starting to come across more and more as “good news” to people around you?
Are you giving the people that come into your life hope for a brighter future?
The hope is that we open up our hearts to realize what is actually possible for us as God’s beloved children.
How do we become good news people?
By listening with a believing heart to what God is saying to you in the book of Romans.
God is saying to you in Romans: “I already decided to love you forever”.
God is speaking to you today and He is saying “GRACE TO YOU!”
