The  Gospel

 

God

The gospel or  "good news" is all about God. God is the Creator of all things and the Sustainer of all things. Even before the creation of the world God has always existed, He is eternal (Psalm 90:4). Being that God is the Creator the Creator of all things He owns us, and He created us in His image (Genesis 1:27). God created mankind with a purpose to love Him, worship Him, and enjoy Him forever. God created us to have perfect fellowship with Him. God has revealed Himself in the Bible, and in the Bible he has revealed that He desires fellowship with us. God has revealed that He is absolutely Perfect and Holy (Isaiah 6:3) Because God is Perfect and Holy, God requires that we be perfect and holy (Matthew 5:48; 1Peter 1:16).

Man/ Sin

Man was created in the image of God (Genesis1:27), but man disobedied God's one command (Genesis 3), and sinned against God. God cursed all mankind, now man has fallen short of what God intended him to be (Romans 3:23) . We were designed to have fellowship with God, but man sinned against God,  every person on the planet has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God ( Romans 3:23; 1 Kings 8:46). God's holiness demands that our sin be punished by death and eternal separation from God in hell (Romans 6:23). We need a Savior to save us from God's ultimate judgement.

Salvation

The Bible teaches that if we confess with your mouth Jesus as lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved (Romans 10:9). Jesus Christ died for our sins, and was buried and was raised from the dead the third day ( 1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Because of sin and your separation from God, and because of God's standard of perfection, we need someone who is perfect and sinless to resue us. Jesus Christ is the only one who is sinless and perfect, He is the only way to the Father (John 14:6). There is no other way and no other name except the name of Jesus that a person can be saved ( Acts 4:12).

The Gospel

The gospel is a message that is "good news" to the person that realizes the bad news that they are sinners. We are not good people (Romans3:10), but sinners who need God's grace . The gospel is a demand on your life to confess and repent from your sin and turn to faith in Jesus Christ to save you. Repentance is agreeing with God or saying the same thing that God says that you are sinful, confessing your sin to Him and then making a choice to turn from your sin to pursue Jesus Christ, who offers eternal life with Him (Romans 6:23).
