What Is The Gospel?
"To give His people the knowledge of salvation by the forgiveness of their sins..." - Luke 1:77
If you're not a Christian but you've been around Christians, you've probably heard the term "gospel," but what does it mean?
It means God loves you. He has a purpose for your life. He wants you to have a meaningful life. That's the great part! Everybody likes that.
But we have a problem personally experiencing God's love. We're separated from God because of our sin. Sin is missing the mark of God's best for our life. It's living life our way versus God's way. But the solution is Jesus. He died for our sins. He rose from the dead, proving He is God. He is the way to God.
This calls for a decision to believe Jesus is who He says He is, and to trust Christ alone for salvation and abundant life.
That's it. Do you believe it? The gospel is the good news of salvation, following the bad news of our sin problem. I hope you'll believe it and receive it.
