When Jesus encounters each of us and we put our faith in Him, He does a marvelous thing. He utterly transforms us. He doesn't improve our life. He takes us from death to life, from being sinner to being saint. We're given new identity, new purpose, and new power. Because of Him, we become finally capable of really loving others and ourselves. This is the good news of the gospel. Freed from sin and death, in Christ, we become set for eternal life.
Many people do not know this. They need to hear the gospel and experience relationship with Jesus. Some of them are in churches and do not realize they haven't crossed over from death to life. There is a real urgency to share the good news of Christ. We're called to be His witnesses to a hurting world. He gives us the new identity to enable us to do that.
