When we see a weather report that says a huge storm is coming to our area, we do not normally think, “Oh boy, that’s good news!” But, in one sense it is very “good news.” It is good news because it warns us of impending danger in time for us to do something about it. Jesus said,

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.

Mark 1:15

The Gospel contains ideas, and the Gospel makes an argument. But first and foremost the Gospel is GOOD NEWS! It is good news because, if you are hearing it, there is still time to escape the impending storm of God’s wrathful judgment which is righteously due to all of us. Because we have sinned against God, the “Good News” should be the “lead story” every day of our lives:

For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

I Corinthians 15:3-4
