The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Do you need some good news? The best news we can ever receive is the good news of Jesus. The good news is Jesus came to this earth to die for our sins. He rose again and each person who places their faith in Him will have eternal life. As we begin our walk with Jesus, He begins to transform our life. In addition, our faith in Jesus changes our eternal destination. 

John 3:16 tells this amazing message of the Gospel. “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. [1]

No matter who you are, one day you will stop living. Then what? Where will you spend eternity? The Lord loves you so much that He made a way for you to enter heaven’s gate. Jesus tells us in John 10:9, “Yes, I am the gate. Those who come in through me will be saved.”[2] By placing our faith in Jesus as our Savior, at death, we will be taken to heaven to live in the house of the Lord forever. What an amazing thought!

The Apostle Paul writes in 1 Cor. 2:9 “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” [3] That certainly sounds like good news to me. If you don’t know Jesus as your Savior, take time to ask Him to be Lord of your life. If you are a believer in Jesus, think of someone in your life who needs to know Jesus.

In our story of the Ethiopian and Philip, it was Philip who was given the gift of sharing the good news with the Ethiopian. What a privilege the Lord has given us to share such a life changing gift. 

Listen here to hear the story of Philip and the Ethiopian:
