What is the Gospel?
The Gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ. The good news is who Jesus is and what he accomplished. Truthfully and unfortunately, we are sinners. All we know is sin. God has a law and no man, besides Christ, has kept the law. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Because we have sinned ,God has to punish us. If he gave us what we deserve, we would have been in hell last night. But he knew we couldn't keep the law, so he showed us grace and love by sending his only son Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus never sinned. He was perfect and his love for us drove him to die for us so that we might become the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ. There is only two things he ask us to do. Repent & Relationship. Repent of our sins and give them up. Realize that we are sinners and acknowledge that we need him. God desires a genuine relationship.
Romans 3: 23 For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard.
Romans 3: 10-12 None is righteous, no, not one; 11 no one understands; no one seeks for God.12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one
Romans 5: 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
2 Corinthians 5: 21 He made him who knew no sin to be sin for us that we may become the righteousness of God through him.
John 3:16-17 16For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Ephesians 2: 8-9 8For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- 9not by works, so that no one can boast.
Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
James 2:19 You say you have faith, for you believe that there is one God. Good for you! Even the demons believe this, and they tremble in terror.
John 3: 18-21 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21 But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
Matthew 6: 24 No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
