The other day I heard someone say something to the effect of “You mean that when I feel guilty, I can just know that the cross means I no longer need to feel guilt.” I explained to him the importance of repentance, but affirmed his new discovery. This was good news he hadn’t ever heard before. A light bulb had gone off for him, and his eyes lit up. Wouldn’t it be nice to approach the truth of Jesus’ redemption with the such freshness? I would hope that this good news never stops being good. I hope that I never get ‘beyond’ the need to hear the wonderful news of the gospel, feeling the need to move on to something ‘deeper.’ Nothing can be more simple and yet so deep as the gospel.
