Bible Truth Restored

If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.           1 Peter 4:11

REALLY GOOD NEWS
 
The word gospel means “good news.” It was good news that men needed back then in Bible Times, and it is good news that harassed and embattled humanity need today.
On beginning his ministry for mankind, we are told that Jesus declared: “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound” Isaiah 61:1; c.f.

He spoke to the multitude, and to his disciples, saying, The scribes and Pharisees ... bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers” Matthew 23:1-4. Jesus exhorted them to make an end of all that.

And he called unto the people: “Come unto me, all that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” Matthew 11:28-30.

His life was so fragrant, his teaching so beautiful, and his touch so gracious that men back there, as do millions today, declared that never man spake as this man. Aye, never man lived as he lived, and “the common people heard him gladly.” He showed mankind that God’s attitude toward repentant sinners was one of goodwill, and taught them to pray, “Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed by Thy name.”
