The Good News

WS-devo_PMSGreetings from Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus. God chose me to be an apostle and gave me the work of telling his Good News. God promised long ago through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures to give this Good News to his people. The Good News is about God’s Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. As a human, he was born from the family of David, but through the Holy Spirit he was shown to be God’s powerful Son when he was raised from death. (‭Romans‬ ‭1‬:‭1-4‬ ERV)


The book of Romans is nicknamed the Gospel of Grace. At the beginning of this epistle, it's clear what the central message is—the Good News about God's Son, Jesus.

This is the gospel in its simplest form, and here are the basics. Jesus is God's (only) Son. He is Lord and Christ (Messiah). He was born into humanity through the family line of King David.

And notice what demonstrates that He alone is the Son of God—His resurrection from the dead! The resurrection, not His death, was always the central message of the apostles when they shared the gospel message.

Victory over death, yes, this is indeed Good News! ©Word-Strong_2015
