The Gospel (the Good News) is that though we are sinners, God offers us grace through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. By putting our faith in Him, we are saved from God’s wrath for our sin, given new life here on Earth, and will spend eternity with Him after we die. This is part of God’s great plan to redeem creation and has implications for us not only as individuals, but for the whole world. It should change the way we relate to God, others, and the way we live our lives.
The Gospel is not just the A-B-Cs of Christianity, but the A to Z. We are not saved through the Gospel and then required to maintain our salvation through obedience, but the Gospel is the way we grow (Gal. 3:1-3) and are renewed (Col. 1:6). It is the solution to each problem, the key to each closed door, the power to face every roadblock of life (Rom. 1:16-17).
