God is Good and His mercy Endureth Forever
God is good and his mercy endures forever. The Gospel is preached to announce to mankind that there is a Saviour for sinners in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Bible Scriptures: KJV
Psalms 107:1-15 “O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy; 3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them. 6 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. 7 And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.
8 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!9 For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.10 Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;11 Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:12 Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.13 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.14 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.15 Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!”

What is the state of my heart?
What is the state of my heart? The Gospel is preached to awaken fallen man to their need of a Saviour. The Bible tells us that in our sins we find ourselves short of the glory of God. Many people try to earn favour with God by doing God works, attending meetings or giving to charity. The scriptures tell us that the only way to find peace with God is through the completed work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation
Luke 10:25-37 “25 And behold, a certain lawyer stood up tempting him, and saying, Teacher, having done what, shall I inherit life eternal?26 And he said to him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?
27 But he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thine understanding; and thy neighbour as thyself.28 And he said to him, Thou hast answered right: this do and thou shalt live.29 But he, desirous of justifying himself, said to Jesus, And who is my neighbour?30 And Jesus replying said, A certain man descended from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell into [the hands of] robbers, who also, having stripped him and inflicted wounds, went away leaving him in a half-dead state.31 And a certain priest happened to go down that way, and seeing him, passed on on the opposite side;
32 and in like manner also a Levite, being at the spot, came and looked [at him] and passed on on the opposite side.33 But a certain Samaritan journeying came to him, and seeing [him], was moved with compassion,34 and came up [to him] and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine; and having put him on his own beast, took him to [the] inn and took care of him.
35 And on the morrow [as he left], taking out two denarii he gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, Take care of him, and whatsoever thou shalt expend more, *I* will render to thee on my coming back.36 Which [now] of these three seems to thee to have been neighbour of him who fell into [the hands of] the robbers?37 And he said, He that shewed him mercy. And Jesus said to him, Go, and do *thou* likewise.”
Luke 18:18-22 “18 And a certain ruler asked him saying, Good teacher, having done what, shall I inherit eternal life?19 But Jesus said to him, Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, God.20 Thou knowest the commandments: Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.
21 And he said, All these things have I kept from my youth.22 And when Jesus had heard this, he said to him, One thing is lacking to thee yet: Sell all that thou hast and distribute to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in the heavens, and come, follow me.”
John 2:23 “And when he was in Jerusalem, at the passover, at the feast, many believed on his name, beholding his signs which he wrought.”
John 2:23-25 “23 And when he was in Jerusalem, at the passover, at the feast, many believed on his name, beholding his signs which he wrought.24 But Jesus himself did not trust himself to them, because he knew all [men],25 and that he had not need that any should testify of man, for himself knew what was in man.”
Psalm 51 “Be gracious unto me, O God, according to thy loving-kindness; according to the abundance of thy tender mercies, blot out my transgressions.2 Wash me fully from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.3 For I acknowledge my transgressions, and my sin is continually before me.4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done what is evil in thy sight; that thou mayest be justified when thou speakest, be clear when thou judgest.5 Behold, in iniquity was I brought forth, and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, thou wilt have truth in the inward parts; and in the hidden [part] thou wilt make me to know wisdom.7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I
Where do you stand before God?
The Gospel is preached to announce the Good news that God has provided a Saviour in the Lord Jesus Christ. In this Gospel preaching, you will hear of two situations of distance from the Bible where God drew near to mankind.
Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation
Isaiah 59:1-2 “Behold, Jehovah’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy that it cannot hear; 2 but your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you, that he doth not hear.”
Isaiah 59:16 “And he saw that there was no man, and he wondered that there was no intercessor; and his arm brought him salvation, and his righteousness, it sustained him.”
Luke 16:19-26 “19 Now there was a rich man and he was clothed in purple and fine linen, making good cheer in splendour every day.20 And [there was] a poor man, by name Lazarus, [who] was laid at his gateway full of sores,21 and desiring to be filled with the crumbs which fell from the table of the rich man; but the dogs also coming licked his sores.22 And it came to pass that the poor man died, and that he was carried away by the angels into the bosom of Abraham. And the rich man also died and was buried.23 And in hades lifting up his eyes, being in torments, he sees Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he crying out said, Father Abraham, have compassion on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am suffering in this flame. 25 But Abraham said, Child, recollect that *thou* hast fully received thy good things in thy lifetime, and likewise Lazarus evil things. But now he is comforted here, and *thou* art in suffering.26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm is fixed, so that those who desire to pass hence to you cannot, nor do they who [desire to cross] from there pass over unto us.”

The Father’s Heart
In Luke 15, we read of a parable that Jesus told about two sons who were lost. The Lord uses this parable to explain the Gospel message and the love of God for mankind.
Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation
Luke 15:11-32 “11 And he said, A certain man had two sons;12 and the younger of them said to his father, Father, give to me the share of the property that falls [to me]. And he divided to them what he was possessed of.13 And after not many days the younger son gathering all together went away into a country a long way off, and there dissipated his property, living in debauchery.
14 But when he had spent all there arose a violent famine throughout that country, and he began to be in want.15 And he went and joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.16 And he longed to fill his belly with the husks which the swine were eating; and no one gave to him.17 And coming to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father’s have abundance of bread, and *I* perish here by famine.18 I will rise up and go to my father, and I will say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee;19 I am no longer worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
20 And he rose up and went to his own father. But while he was yet a long way off, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and ran, and fell upon his neck, and covered him with kisses.21 And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee; I am no longer worthy to be called thy son.22 But the father said to his bondmen, Bring out the best robe and clothe him in [it], and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet;
23 and bring the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and make merry:24 for this my son was dead and has come to life, was lost and has been found. And they began to make merry.25 And his elder son was in the field; and as, coming [up], he drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing.26 And having called one of the servants, he inquired what these things might be.27 And he said to him, Thy brother is come, and thy father has killed the fatted calf because he has received him safe and well.28 But he became angry and would not go in. And his father went out and besought him.
29 But he answering said to his father, Behold, so many years I serve thee, and never have I transgressed a commandment of thine; and to me hast thou never given a kid that I might make merry with my friends:30 but when this thy son, who has devoured thy substance with harlots, is come, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.31 But he said to him, Child, *thou* art ever with me, and all that is mine is thine.32 But it was right to make merry and rejoice, because this thy brother was dead and has come to life again, and was lost and has been found.”
