Mark 1 – Proclaim the Good News

Mark 1:1 The beginning of the good news about Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God.

I Was reminded this week about how important a core belief of the Gospel is, and is to proclaim the good news that we have.  The Good News being that we(All Humanity) have been given a chance for eternal life instead of an eternity separated from God the Father.  That is the Good News.

But of course with good news there is always bad news as well lest there won’t be any GOOD news to hear.  The bad news is that many, so many will reject what the Bible says and never come to realize we have a way of escape eternal darkness.

We have to remember from the beginning as to why we needed being “saved” in the first place. When God created Adam and Eve and set them in the Garden He gave over to them dominion over ALL the earth.  This wasn’t a small thing at all.  I mean, Adam was Lord over all the earth and of course God was Lord over Adam and everything as well.  He didn’t just kind of give him authority He gave him ALL dominion over everything.

Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

This resolved his place on earth.  So you see, when Adam went against God’s Word that said  And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Gen 1:17-18) he had a grave mistake that not only lost him his authority on the earth but corrupted ALL mankind in the process and so God losing His creation.  So there had to be a way…

In came Jesus and the plan of salvation from death.  This is the reason, the reason we as Christians say we are saved!  Saved from eternal death and destruction.

Be blessed,
