The Gospel is the most important message anyone will ever hear. It is a message of salvation, only possible through Jesus Christ. The word “gospel” means “good news”, and the gospel we’re going to reveal is the one true Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is a message of sacrifice, grace, and salvation. Let us discuss and share the good news.
- We all have sinned.
This is the first step of the gospel message and a realization we must all face. All of us have sinned and will sin. Romans 3:23 says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. But the message doesn’t stop there, however, it is just the beginning.
- Therefore, since we have all sinned, we all deserve spiritual death or eternal separation from God.
Sin leads to death. It leads to spiritual death most of all and we must realize this. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” This should be a motivation for us not to want to live in torment for all eternity. So there must be another way to have everlasting life, and thanks be to God that there is.
- But because of God’s grace, He gave up his son Jesus Christ to die on a cross and be raised to life.
We are saved only through Jesus Christ. He is our only escape from death. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 says, “Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried,that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures”. Jesus Christ was crucified for our sins, buried, and raised to life. Praise God for His glorious gift. The sacrifice of Christ was also a free gift that justifies us by His grace (Romans 3:24). Jesus is the only source of salvation (Hebrews 5:9).
- Christ’s death allows for our sins to be forgiven and remembered no more.
- Hebrews 10:10
- Ephesians 1:7
- 1 John 1:7
- After three days, Jesus was raised from the dead. His resurrection proves that for those who obey Him, there is eternal life waiting for them.
- 1 Corinthians 15:20
- Romans 4:25
To receive salvation, all you need to do is believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, confess your sins, repent of your old ways, and be baptized for the forgiveness of your sins. Live a life obedient to God and you will receive eternal life.
