The gospel is our only hope. In our inability to save ourselves, God demonstrated His capability. We desperately need God. Our lives were created to live under His rightful reign and yet in our rebellion and foolishness we determined that our reign was better than His.
The book of Romans explains that life under our reign leads to despair and darkness, how God pursued us, in Christ, to be our good news and how He aligns our lives to His benevolent and gracious reign granting us abundant life.
