Spiritual Emphasis Week

Gospel means good news,
but I never understood
The terminology as to why
the news was "good."
And then it hit me,
it stuck into my brain:
The Gospel's 'bout what Jesus did,
Not my religious games.
It's not how much I go to church,
Or read, or pray, or give,
That makes God say, "You're good
enough,
I think I'll let you live!"
If that's what it is, I must admit,
The Gospel's not good news,
"Cuz I'm never, never sure I did enough
And God might say, "You lose!"
No! God says,"Though your debt is
huge,
My Son has paid the fee.
He died and rose to save your soul.
Accept the gift, it's FREE!"
Good News!
