WHAT IS THE Gospel?
The word ‘Gospel’ literally means “Good News.” Specifically speaking, the Gospel is the good news about Jesus. The story of who He is and what He did. Let’s break it down in 3 simple steps…
1. GOD'S DESIGN
God created the world and we can see beauty, purpose and evidence of design all around us. It is impossible to ignore. He created us to know Him and to enjoy Him; to live and bring glory and honor to Him.
(Genesis 1:31, Psalm 19:1 & Ephesians 2:10)
2. OUR BROKENNESS (SIN)
If we look around at society, it is easy to see that humanity is not bringing glory to God. Rather, there is a brokenness in the world. Really, we are the problem. We have not valued a relationship with Him. The word “sin” means to miss the mark and trying to do life our own way. The Bible says the consequence of sin is death.
(Romans 1:25, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23 & Proverbs 14:12)
3. THE SOLUTION (JESUS)
There is some Good News. God, because of His mercy and great love for us, did not leave us in our brokenness. He sent His Son, Jesus, as a solution to our sin problem. Jesus came to us, lived a perfect sin-free life (exampling life by God’s design) and willingly chose to die in our place to pay the penalty for our sin.
Simply hearing this good news is not enough, we must act on it and turn from our brokenness, ask God for forgiveness and stop trusting in ourselves. This is when we can begin to understand God’s original design for our lives and the lives of others.
(John 3:16, Colossians 2:14, Mark 1:15 & Ephesians 2:8–9)
