The Good News

God; He cares for you

In 1 Peter 5:6-7, in the NIV version of the Bible, we are told:

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

There are two things you can take away from this verse; one is that the most mighty being in the universe will lift you up in due time. If you have problems, He will lift you up. And, something that is just as reassuring, is that you can cast your anxiety on him because HE CARES FOR YOU.  That last point is very important. You are His creation and he loves you like a parent. If you need to unload some anxiety that is lowering your quality of life, you can cast it off on God, who can handle it for you.

He sent his only begotten Son to die in your place so you can have eternal life.  The price of sin is death, but when you accept Jesus, you are given life eternal since He paid the ransom in your place.  That is the good news.
