The Gospel of Jesus Christ as given in the New Testament
1. People are sinful, and separated from God.
“For all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;”
2. God Loves You
“For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
3. Jesus Christ is God’s provision for sin.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
4. We must receive Jesus Christ as our Saviour.
“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those that believe in His name.”
“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”
5. God Commands all to repent.
“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked; but now commands all men everywhere to repent.”
Friend, please take a minute and read through those verses again. The Bible shows us how we can have a personal relationship with GOD—in Jesus Christ. Knowing Him can give you peace on the inside and a sense of purpose in life. It will help you have the power to prevail, no matter what situation in life you may face. It is important to consider these things today! Salvation from the penalty of sin enables us to go to heaven and then come back to reign with Jesus, while to be lost is to be under sin’s condemnation and destined for an everlasting hell. Now is the time of salvation!
