In Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, “the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law” (Rom. 3:21). That is, this Jesus “God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith” (Rom. 3:25), for GOD is “just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus” (Rom. 3:26). This eternal Good News (Gospel) is to be proclaimed “to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people” (Rev. 14:6); that is, to you, for by the hearing of this Gospel “you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free,” (John 8:31–32) freed from slavery to sin and death, freed to live generously.
