Starting Again

The gospel message is the story of God's love and kindness, which is a second opportunity on starting again. But before we begin, it may be helpful to share the good news "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16 ESV). This is a message of love and sacrifice when God, in the person of Jesus Christ, made right the way of salvation.

The message of Jesus Christ crucified was necessary to amend the breach (an act of breaking or failing to observe a law, agreement or code of conduct), which resulted in mankind's expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Therefore, the Word says: “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon" (Isaiah 55:6,7 ESV).

So once again, I'd like to exemplify the greatness of God's magnanimous love that would sacrifice His Son — in order to bring the message and propitiation of salvation.

Adam is called the son of God.
There is only one other "Son of God" in the Bible, and He is Jesus Christ. Yet we are called "sons of God," but how? In being reinstated through the atonement.


"Ye rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of glory."

If our GOAL is Revival, we will be quite unbalanced when it comes. If our goal is God, we will be able to walk with Him calmly and steadfastly through years of waiting and through the joys and victories of a season of refreshing. Christ crucified and risen is not only the Door, and the Way, but the End also. It is our personal relationship to Him which counts more than anything else. Oh, the need for men and women who know their God! The Church of Christ will only arise militant, triumphant, an exceeding great army, when individuals get rightly related to God.
