Many of us have already heard the message of judgment and condemnation and some of us have received it as the Gospel. That my friend is no Gospel at all. The Gospel literally means "Good News". There is no good news in judgment and condemnation. Before you can come to a Holy God, there must be a way of peace. A person who believes that he is condemned can never approach a Holy God. We have been reconciled through peace. Peace is the road that man and God can travel on together in harmony. Peace is the only way that can bring Hope and God knew this, that is why He sent Jesus, to bridge a gap, to break down the wall of hostility, and to make peace between God and man. This peace brings rest and assurance that God is for me and not against me.
