Glad Tidings, or Believe and Live
The Gospel means "good news," and is a proclamation from the GOD of heaven to His guilty creatures on earth, that for the sake of what JESUS has done, he will pardon all who trust in His faithful work, and receive them as warmly as if they had never sinned at all. It comes to tell of a way by which we can come to GOD as joyfully as Adam could before he fell. GOD's Fatherly voice sounds to us from the heavens, saying, "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." The good news is in that sentence. Observe, the voice from heaven did not say, with whom I am well pleased, though that is true. Neither does it say for whom I am well pleased, though that is also true. But it says "in whom I am well pleased." It is only when we see GOD in CHRIST JESUS that we can see a well-pleased GOD. In that one sentence, GOD himself preached the Gospel to that awe-struck throng which stood upon the banks of Jordan; and through them to all the ends of the earth.
