The good news of the gospel is that Christ came to give us life, love and freedom, and not just for the future, but for the here and now! God wants us to enjoy him now; he wants us to be alive like never before! That’s why Christ came to die on the cross for us. God’s wants to bring all of us back to Himself and restore the relationship He enjoyed with us at creation. That restored relationship with God, which we find only in Christ, is the basis of our identity!
