The problem of life is called sin. Sin is what separates you from God. But there's good news!
Everybody likes good news! News like, you got a raise, or your medical tests came back and you're healthy as a horse. But sometimes the news is not so great. Instead of a raise you just got laid off, or your medical tests say you have cancer. That's bad news! But, it could just be a temporary setback. Maybe you'll end up actually getting a better job, or a new drug will give you a new lease on life.
So maybe that bad news was just temporary. The Bad News I'm talking about is not temporary; it's Eternal. The Bad News is that we have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God (Romans 3:23). The Super Bad News is that Romans 6:23 says, "The wages of sin is death." That's eternal death.
The Good News is that verse has a part B: "But the free Gift of God is Eternal Life through faith in Jesus Christ."
The actual definition of the word GOSPEL is "Good News." But it's not just any Good News...it's the Best News Ever!
