The Gospel of Jesus Christ

Dear friend, it is my privilege to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with you! The Gospel (good news) is all about Jesus: His birth, His life and ministry, His death, His resurrection, and His ascension (return) to Heaven as King of kings and Lord of lords. God reveals His Gospel throughout the Bible (Romans 1:1, 2 Timothy 3:16). The Gospel includes all that Jesus Christ taught, including the following key principles:

Only God is holy

Throughout the Bible, we repeatedly read that there is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4) and that He is holy and perfect (Isaiah 6:3). In fact, God is holy beyond all human comprehension. God is morally set apart from us because He is holy and sinless. All of God’s standards are perfect. Therefore, His standard for mankind is sinless perfection. In Habakkuk 1:13 we read of God. “You are of purer eyes than to behold evil.” Therefore, God will not allow one sin into His heaven and commands us all, “Be holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16).

All mankind is sinful

All sin is unholy and all of mankind is sinful. Therefore, we are incapable of meeting God’s perfect standard. Except for Jesus Christ, no man has ever met God’s perfect standard of holiness. The Bible teaches us that, “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). The Bible also teaches us that “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). Sin is defined as a transgression (breaking) of God’s holy law and a missing of the mark of God’s perfect standard. For example, in the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2-17), it is plain for us to see how we have all disobeyed God’s laws. The ninth commandment states that no one is to bear false witness (lie) to anyone. If the only sin we ever committed was one single lie, then that one sin would be enough to sentence us to Hell forever (Revelation 21:8). Therefore, we read in James 2:10, “For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.”

Only Jesus saves

God took on flesh and became a Man and His name is Jesus Christ (John 1:1, John 1:14, Philippians 2:5-11). God is present in Three separate yet co-equal Persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Son of God, Jesus Christ, was born into this world to fulfill God’s perfect standard of holiness. Therefore, Jesus never sinned (Hebrews 4:15, Matthew 3:15). Jesus gave His life on the cross for those who would believe, as it is written: “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Sin can only be paid for if the payment is perfect. As only Jesus Christ lived a perfect life, only His sacrifice on the cross is accepted as a perfect payment for sin (Hebrews 9:12). Therefore, we can ONLY be saved through faith in Jesus (John 14:6, Acts 4:12). Jesus also legally gives His perfect righteousness to all who place their faith in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21, Jude 1:24). After Jesus died on the cross, He rose again bodily on the third day and defeated sin, death, and Satan forever (1 Corinthians 15:4). We worship a living Savior!

You must repent

God commands us to repent because He loves us (Romans 2:4). We must understand that since all have sinned against God, no one can ever claim to be good or holy enough for Heaven (Romans 3:11). We are only saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8-9). Grace is the free gift of God; it cannot be earned by sinful men. Therefore, God “now commands all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30; see also Acts 3:19 and 2 Peter 3:9). True repentance causes you to turn from your sins to follow God (2 Timothy 2:19, Luke 9:23, Hebrews 12:14). When you repent, you surrender your life to God through faith in Jesus (Mark 8:35-36). This is what it means to be born-again and receive the Holy Spirit (John 3:3, 2 Corinthians 5:17, John 1:12). Without the Holy Spirit, no one can be saved, nor can anyone even understand the Word of God (John 3:5, John 14:26, 1 Corinthians 2:14). All born-again Christians follow Jesus because they love Him (Luke 9:23, John 14:15). All Christians hate sin and pursue holiness because the Holy Spirit lives in them (1 Corinthians 3:16). God’s will for us is to learn and share His Word with others. Therefore, all Christians must read, study, and obey God’s Word and seek to attend a Bible-teaching church (Philippians 2:13, 2 Corinthians 5:14, 1 Peter 2:2, Hebrews 10:24-25).

You must repent today

All those who reject Jesus Christ and His Gospel and die in that condition will be judged and sentenced to eternal punishment in Hell (John 3:18, John 3:36, Luke 12:9, 2 Thessalonians 1:8). If you do not know Jesus as Lord and Savior, then we urge you to repent and surrender your life to Him today. My dear friend, Jesus promised that He would not reject anyone who comes to Him through faith (John 6:37). Therefore, it is written, “if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Romans 10:9-10). The Bible teaches us that today is the day to repent and turn to God, not tomorrow. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone (2 Corinthians 6:2, Proverbs 27:1). Now that you have read this Gospel, we pray that you have been made to understand how important it is to pray to God in Jesus’ name, that you would be saved. Don’t let today pass by without praying to God and surrendering your life to Jesus Christ. “Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15).

May God extend His loving hand of grace to you today and cause you to turn to Him, that all of Heaven may celebrate and welcome you into the family of God (Luke 15:7). In Jesus’ name, Amen.
