Grace for all people
The surprising thing about the gospel of Jesus is that it's full of God's grace for the undeserving.
Why is God's grace good news?
We live in a broken world but this isn't the way God designed it. In the beginning God made the world good and perfect and just. And yet the world was broken by sin. Sin is what the Bible calls anytime we are unjust and fail to live up to God's good and just standards. We see the evidence of sin all around us in conflict and selfishness and hurt and loss. But if we're honest we see it in ourselves too -- things we do that we know we shouldn't or things we don't do that we should.
That's where God's grace comes in. God sent Jesus who lived a perfect life and then died a death he didn't deserve so that God's grace could be extended to the undeserving. The Bible says "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16). Because of Jesus anyone can find forgiveness and restoration.
