What is the Gospel? | Discipleship #1

To fully grasp the good news, we need to know the bad news first.

God created us in his image, but we rebelled against him.

God now has a problem with us. Since he is righteous and just, he must judge all evil.

The penalty for our sins is death: spiritual, physical, and eternal.

We can do nothing to make ourselves acceptable to God. Good works won’t work.

But here comes the good news. God so loved the world that he provided a way to rescue us.

A substitute: someone able to live a sinless life to die for our sins.

Who is this substitute? Jesus Christ, true God and truly human.

Jesus died on the cross to pay our debt and rose from the dead to give us eternal life.

Jesus is alive

Jesus is the king and savior of the world.

Jesus is coming back to judge the living and the dead.

To enter his kingdom and be saved, he calls us to turn from our sins and put our trust in him.

And there is more, by his Spirit, Jesus is renewing us to be like Him and empowering us to win others for Him until he returns.
