I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise. So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the Gospel to you that are at Rome also. For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ: for it is the power of GOD unto Salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of GOD revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of GOD is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of GOD is manifest in them; for GOD hath shewed it unto them. (Rom 1:14-19)
Faith in Him and the forgiveness that comes from GOD, is not a license to sIn, that we might be forgiven, but Liberty to live in Christ, and He in us, faithful to the Gospel we preach. Trusting Christ with repentance means turning away from our sIn, and turning to GOD, knowing the judgment and terror of the LORD, and receiving His mercy and forgiveness. Because we belief in Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, our Creator, Redeemer, and King, we obediently serve our Lord and our GOD, keep His Commandments, and love one another.
That service and love includes ministering to the hurting around us, that they may see Jesus in us, the Hope of Glory. We are commanded to teach all nations, and show them that even the general revelation of nature, even though it is cursed by our rebellion, reveals our GOD, and that they are under condemnation because of their sIn. Because of the love of GOD in us, we are compelled to reach both Jews and Gentiles, that they may hear the Gospel and be delivered from their trespasses and sins. We are commissioned to preach the Good News of Jesus Christ as we go, to all who will hear, that they might repent and believe, and in believing have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
