What is the Gospel?

All have sinned and must die, but the good news is all can be saved through Jesus

‘The payment for sin is death, but the gift that God freely gives is everlasting life found in Christ Jesus our Lord’ (Romans 6:23)

The good news is that God comes after you

‘Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life’ (Psalm 23:6)

The good news is that God forgives my sins

"I am the God who forgives your sins’ (Isaiah 43:25)

If you repent and receive the grace of Jesus Christ and make Him number one in your life He says, "I'm not going to hold your sins against you. “There is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus." (Roman 8:1)

The good news is that now I am acceptable to God

"Christ has accepted you." (Romans 15:7)

You've accepted Christ. But have you ever realized that God has accepted you? God has accepted you just as you are, and when you turned to Him with your weaknesses and failures.

The good news is you have eternal life now as a gift from God
These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. (1 John 5:13)

The good news is that God loved us and poured His grace out on us in spite of who we are

‘But God showed His love to us. While we were still sinners, Christ died for us’ (Romans 5:8).

He did and does it while we are his enemies. He does it, not because we are special, but because of the kind intention of His will. There is nothing in us that is lovable after the fall and God still pours out grace on us. However, when grace happens to us, change happens.

The good news is God treated Jesus, who is sinless, as if he committed every sin..

"For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:21)

When you gave your heart to Jesus, He gave His Spirit. When you repented and accepted Jesus, the great transaction takes place: God treats Jesus, who is sinless, as if He committed every sin that you committed. But God does not leave you neutral. He also imputes (places) upon you the righteousness of Christ. Your past sins are forgiven. God treats you as if you did every righteous act that Christ accomplished. God doesn't stop there. He also makes Christ's righteousness part of you through His living presence in us. We now stand right with God because of our faith in Jesus.  

The good news is that I am born into God’s family

He gave the right and the power to become children of God to those who received Him. He gave this to those who put their trust in His name. (John 1:12)
The good news is that grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off

Titus 2:11-12 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people. It teaches us to say "No" to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.

Grace saves you. Changes you. Shapes you. Strengthens you. Softens you. Rewires you. ‘For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.” (Roman 6:14).

The good news is that grace moves us to be generous and share His love

Acts 20:24 But I am not worried about this. I do not think of my life as worth much, but I do want to finish the work the Lord Jesus gave me to do. My work is to preach the Good News of God’s loving-favor.

The good news is that God loved, God gave, we believe, we live

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son. Whoever puts his trust in God’s Son will not be lost but will have life that lasts forever (John 3:16)

The gospel is the way God saves you

I am not ashamed of the Good News. It is the power of God. It is the way He saves men from the punishment of their sins if they put their trust in Him. It is for the Jew first and for all other people also (Romans 1:16)
It is the way God saves you from your sins and yourself. He does this through Jesus. The gospel is about Jesus and salvation through Him alone.
