The gospel of Jesus Christ is the most important truth any person can trust. The bible says the gospel is this,
“Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, 2 and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep.” 1 Corinthians 15:1-6
The Gospel is this, Jesus died for sin. The proof of his death is that he was buried. All of the gospels reveal this truth about Jesus as do several of the prophets who foretold about Jesus’ suffering such as Isaiah in chapter 53. The gospel does not end with Jesus’ death, NO the gospel is also that he was raised on the third day. To prove that Jesus raised from the dead we have accounts in the gospels and in Acts where he revealed himself to people. Jesus raised from the dead because he said he would. He also raised from the dead to prove the sin he died for was not greater than he.
This is the truth of gospel; Jesus died for sin, Jesus rose on the third day. Truth however without action is simply stagnant knowledge. Truth is meant to move us and change us, therefore the gospel’s truth is to move us to receive it. This has to do with complete acceptance of our sin and Jesus payment for sin. The Bible not only says, “all have sinned,” but also “no one seeks God.” That is why Jesus came and gave us the gospel. That is how John wrote, “this is love, not that we loved him but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sin.” This means Jesus took the divine wrath of God for sin (your sin) when he died. But this truth must be accepted and confessed. Paul wrote in Romans 10:9 “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.“
At Faith, the gospel changes everything. Trusting in the gospel gives us a new beginning and a new purpose. This purpose is to make much of God through intentionally loving him through holy living, loving others through walking by the Spirit, and making disciples by Christ’s authority and in the Spirits power.
