Everyone enjoys hearing good news! The Gospel of Jesus Christ means just that, good news. It is best defined by who Jesus Christ is, and what He did.
“For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, 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 15:3-4).
So why does the Gospel of Jesus Christ need to be heard? And why is this good news for you? Here is the reason.
First of all, knowing that Christ died for our sins is very important. “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12). All are under the wrath and condemnation of God because of sin. “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8).
Second, Jesus is the only way. He said “ I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6) “God was manifest in the flesh” (1 Timothy. 3:16). Jesus, “who did no sin”(1 Peter 2:22), was the only one to ever live a perfect sinless life. He died a substitutionary death on the cross for all sinners. Jesus Christ went to the cross taking our place and paying the debt we owe to God for our sin. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Third, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is proof of the power of God. Only God who created life can resurrect it after death. “Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him” (Romans 6:9). “For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God” (Romans 6:10). The “gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
Finally, Jesus Christ’s death on the cross paid for the sin of all men. Through His death and resurrection, eternal life is provided to all who believe. It is a free gift of salvation to all mankind. What better news to be heard in all the world!
After hearing the good news of the Gospel and its essential elements you are now invited to respond to its offer of salvation. Now is a very important moment. Do you believe that when Jesus died, He paid the penalty for your sin and that He now longs to be your personal Savior? Will you receive Him as such? Here is how.
First, you must acknowledge your personal sin against God and repent. Repentance is a change of mind that leads to a change in actions. It is turning from sin towards God, seeking His forgiveness. God “commandeth all men every where to repent” (Acts 17:30).
Second, you need to believe the Gospel. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9).
Third, stop and ask the Lord Jesus to save you now. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
Fourth, trust the Lord Jesus Christ to save you. “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast” (Ephesians 2:8,9). Depend by faith on Him to forgive all your sins, to change your life, and give you eternal life as He promised. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
