What is the Gospel?
“Good news,” someone answers.
True, but what is this good news?
Let Paul answer: “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand…how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:1,3,4).
Isn’t it strange that there are so many divisions over this simple and wonderful message? Why do cults rise with far-out formulas for salvation?
Christ died for you and me. He was buried and rose again according to the Scriptures. That message produces the new birth. All who go to heaven arrive there because of this message. God has made His way of eternal life understandable. How sad that man makes it complicated.
To believe the Gospel is to receive Christ by faith.
So, we do not follow the theological concoctions of some self-styled religious charlatan. Our faith rests in the everlasting gospel. And that is good news worth sharing.
Let the whole world know.
Don’t be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ. It’s the power of God unto salvation…needed by all. Cut through meaningless conversation. Speak up for Christ today.
