Good News – Bad News
By Tom D Blakely
The gospel message to the world
Comes to us from the Word of God,
Good news to all who would believe
Bad news for all who are deceived.
For God so loved the world He gave
His Son to die that we might live.
How clearer could the message be
God’s Son has died for you and me!
And why would God do such a thing
To lay on Christ such suffering?
A judgment’s coming on the world
For all have sinned and all rebelled.
A holy God must judge our sin
Or holy He would not remain.
As sinners we’re condemned and lost
And that’s why Jesus paid the cost!
Now having conquered death and hell
Christ reigns forever over all.
All power is given unto Him
To judge us or forgive our sin.
Now when the Holy Spirit calls
On us God’s grace and mercy falls,
May we receive Christ on that day
Knowing He is the only way!
“His winnowing fan is in His hand,
and He will thoroughly clean out His threshing floor,
and gather His wheat into the barn;
but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
