By observing creation all around us, we should know that a living Creator God exists. In Creation, God displays his unlimited intelligence and power, and shows that he rules over all things in the exercise of his will.
Each one of us have a sense of moral judgment (even atheists), because God has placed that sense of morality in our hearts and minds. The living God has the right to set standards of behavior for us.
Our suppression of the self-evident about God in Creation, and our natural hatred of his standards of behavior show our need for reconciliation with him.
In light of our need, the news of Jesus Christ and the salvation he offers through his death on a cross and his resurrection from the dead is truly good news. It alone provides a way for us to return to our Creator.
