What is the Gospel message?

The word “Gospel” literally means “good news.”  In essence, the Gospel is the good news that:

  • The God of the Bible is the one true Creator God and Judge of the Universe.
  • Every person, as a created being, is subject to God’s rule and God’s laws, and is guilty of sin in very way: by nature, by intent, and by volition.
  • Holy God’s just punishment for our sin is eternal separation from Him and everlasting, conscious torment in Hell.
  • But, God has provided a way to satisfy His holy requirement through the vicarious life and death of Jesus Christ on our behalf.
  • Jesus’ resurrection was validation of God’s acceptance of Christ’s payment for our justification and reconciled to God.
  • We receive this free offer when God enables us to understand that we are sinful and unable to do anything on our own to merit salvation.
  • Then in repentance and faith we receive Christ as our Lord and Savior.
  • God seals this transaction with the indwelling Holy Spirit given to every believer and guarantees those who are saved eternal life in fellowship with Him forever.

The good news is that God has provided a way, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, for us to be saved from our sin and have fellowship with Him, adopted into His family.

One thought on “What is the Gospel message?

  1. The gospel means “good news” and is Christianity’s summary message of God’s redemption of the elect through the life, death and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ. Paul defined it in I Cor. 15.3-5: “that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared [to many].”

    The gospel is the message through which we are saved, yet the gospel does not simply relate to one’s salvation. The gospel is a foundational worldview from which young and mature believers live on a daily basis. Jack Miller, a Philadelphia pastor, summarized it in this way: “You’re a lot worse off than you think you are, but in Jesus you’re far more loved than you could have ever imagined.” After salvation, we increasingly discover the truth of Miller’s summary of the gospel. The process of increasingly learning the depths of our sin, living a lifestyle of repentance, rejoicing in God’s love for us, and laying the groundwork for the Holy Spirit to change our lives fuels our personal spiritual growth.
