For Your Soul

By Paul L. McElroy

Jesus of Nazareth died for You, "and He Himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world." (1 Jn. 2:2). It is by His blood that You may be forgiven of your sins. "The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, ‘Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world!" (John 1:29).
It does not matter how bad you have been, only that you are now willing to turn from your unrighteousness and submit to Lord’s will. (Acts 3:19, Heb. 5:9, Acts 2:38).

For people to be saved, They must hear the gospel. The apostle Paul said, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek." (Rom. 1:16). It is by the power of the gospel that a person may be born again. (1 Pet. 1:22-25). So, the gospel must be declared and is the reason why Jesus commands us to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." (Mark 16:15).
