The word “Gospel” means good news.
First, there is some bad news…the Bible clearly communicates that everyone has sinned and are therefore separated from God (Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:2).
The Good news is that the Bible also clearly communicates that Jesus…
- Was born of a virgin (Matthew 1:18-25)
- Lived a sinless life (Hebrews 4:14-16)
- Was crucified and died for us, and on behalf of, our sin (Romans 4:25)
- Was resurrected to save forever those who come to God through Him by faith (Hebrews 7:25).
What it means to be a Christian…
It means that you HAVE repented of your sin and prayed to God to forgive you of your sin and to save you on the basis of your faith in the Gospel.
It means that you ARE living by faith in Jesus, standing in His grace, and letting Him live through you as you worship and obey God. It means that you ARE commissioned with the task of communicating Christ to all you come into contact with.
It means that you WILL live with Him in eternity!
