The Gospel

In church, we hear the word “Gospel” quite often. It might be in a sermon or as we’re preparing to go to missions, we say things like “We need to spread the Gospel!” But what exactly is the Gospel?

 

The Gospel is the core of what we believe in, and so it is essential we know what it is; not just for others, but also, for ourselves as well. A good way for us to understand what the Gospel is to ask yourself, “why is the Gospel “Good News?”

3 reasons: 1) Forgivingness and reconciliation, 2) Christ’s perfect righteousness, and 3) Eternal life and the resurrection.

 

The Bible tells us that through Christ, all past, present, and future sins are forgiven. 1 John 1:9 states, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” But not only that, because you are forgiven, you are now reconciled to God. As it states in 2 Cor. 5:18 “All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself…” When we have faith in Jesus, we will always be one with Him and always loved. Is that Good News? Absolutely!

 

The Bible tells us that Jesus lived as a human for 33 years. Why? Because we, human beings, were supposed live that perfect life, but we failed. Therefore, another human had to live that life for us and that was Jesus. He lived perfectly for us, and the cross, He took all our sins and in return, He gave us His perfect life/righteousness. Therefore, we are saved not by our righteousness, but by His perfect righteousness that is given to us through faith. Romans 1:17 states, “For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: ‘The righteous will live by faith.’Is it Good News that we are saved through Christ’s perfect righteousness rather than our own? Yes!

 

Finally, eternal life and the resurrection. We all want to live forever and what the Gospel promises us is that we will! The Word tells us that when Christ comes back, we will have a resurrected, perfect body and live with God for all eternity in heaven; a place where “there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain…” (Rev. 21:4). Is that Good News? Of course!

 

Church, the Gospel is the greatest message there is, and I pray that everyday, we’re reminded of the Gospel so that we live our lives for His glory, but also, for us to clearly share it with others.
