The Gospel Changes Everything

The sign in front of the church 
proclaimed
“The Gospel changes everything.”

I drove on thinking about that.
 
In my life, the Gospel has 
changed everything.
 
It changed my status –
I once was lost, but now I am found.
 
It changed my destination –
I was bound for Hell,
but now Heaven is my eternal Home.
 
It changed my purpose –
I once sought only to please myself,
but now I want to please Christ.
 
It changed my mental health –
I once lived in guilt,
but now I live in forgiveness.
 
It changed my outlook –
The joy of the Lord is my strength.
 
It changed my attitude –
I once saw only the darkness 
in this world,
but now Christ has filled 
my life with light.
 
It changed my lifestyle –
I once lived according to the
priorities and actions 
of this world,
but now I live for Christ.
 
It changed my emotions –
I once lived in fear,
but His love has cast out fear.
 
It changed what I love –
I once loved this world,
but now my affections 
are set on things above.
 
Yes, the Gospel has changed 
everything for me. Everything!
 
Has the Good News of Christ 
changed everything for you?

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth;” Romans 1:16

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, He is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” II Corinthians 5:17
