The gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy. psychiatrist...To be convicted of sin means not just to feel that one is an all-round flop, but to realize that one has offended God, and flouted His authority, and defied Him, and gone against Him, and put oneself in the wrong with Him. Thank you ΙΧΘΥΣ Α†Ω People think they're preaching the gospel to you when they tell you, 'you can have a purpose to your life', or that 'you can have meaning to your life', or that 'you can have a personal relationship with Jesus.' 1. The gospel is a summons to faith and repentance. Jesus did make it possible for men and women to be forgiven of their sins, and this is the center of the good news. Catechism: God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. INSIDE THE ISSUE: “Overcomers,” John Lee; “Rapture! You ever wonder “What must I do to be saved?” it is the most important question anyone can ask. “Whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely” (Rev 22:17). Evangelistic preachers and personal workers have sometimes been known to make this mistake. In common honesty, we must not conceal the fact that free forgiveness in one sense will cost everything; or else our evangelizing becomes a sort of confidence trick. Why Did the World Want Jesus Dead Even Though He Was Innocent? For the persons to whom the benefits of Christ’s death belong are just those who trust His Person and believe, not upon His saving death simply, but upon Him, the living Savior. Everyone has a bad conscience about some things in his past, matters in which he has fallen short of the standard that he set for himself or that was expected of him by others. Nor would it be saving faith if a man in that condition called on the Lord Jesus Christ just to soothe him, and cheer him up, and make him feel confident again. The danger is that in our evangelism we should content ourselves with evoking thoughts of these things and making people feel uncomfortable about them, and then depicting Christ as the One who saves us from these elements of ourselves, without even raising the question of our relationship with God. “And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message…” Colossians 4:3 Pray for boldness and clarity as you share the gospel.

All who hear the gospel are summoned by God to repent and believe. Do you want peace of mind? Anxiety is the chronic pandemic of our age, countered with medication and therapy. In a word, the evangelistic message is the gospel of Christ and Him crucified, the message of man’s sin and God’s grace, of human guilt and divine forgiveness, of new birth and new life through the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Gospel message is to believe in Christ, and to love others. This was not, as some have supposed, a piece of philosophical apologetic of a kind that Paul afterwards renounced, but the first and basic lesson in theistic faith. A fifth message which I have got from God to you is, that you set your hearts and your house in order, for you must die and not live. Jesus is coming back. In some cases the truth was locked away so that the information that people needed was not readily available to them. Though sin is committed by man, and many sins are against society, sin cannot be defined in terms of either man or society. 2.

It tells us who He is, what His character is, what His standards are, and what He requires of us, His creatures. Answer: The word gospel means “good news,” which is the message of forgiveness for sin through the atoning work of Jesus Christ. There is no greater message to be heard than that which we call the gospel. All I want to say here is that even if you think the above assertion is true, your presentation of Christ in evangelism ought not to differ from that of the man who thinks it false. It tells us that the reason why we sin continually is that we are sinners by nature, and that nothing we do or try to do for ourselves can put us right or bring us back into God’s favor. It is a powerful message, because it is God’s good news. Unless we see our shortcomings in the light of the Law and holiness of God, we do not see them as sin at all.

God is waiting for the heart of man to turn humbly toward him. 1) God created us for his glory. But now, my point is that, even if a man thinks that this statement would be true if he made it, it is not a thing that he ever needs to say or ever has reason to say when preaching the gospel. It is here with the assertion of man’s complete and constant dependence on his Creator that the Christian story starts. Here’s What to Expect. Jesus challenges people to “repent, and believe the gospel.” In between, Jesus proclaims “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is near.” That core announcement — “It’s time, and God is breaking into the world” — … Nor can you tell on what terms to approach Him now until you know about the resurrection, ascension, and heavenly session—that Jesus has been raised, and enthroned, and made King, and lives to save to the uttermost all who acknowledge His Lordship. But such a message could hardly be called the gospel. And the beginning from which Paul started in such cases was the doctrine of God’s Creatorship and man’s creaturehood. Response and result - its as simple as that. We are dedicated to helping you understand the things which constitute the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Such is the evangelistic message that we are sent to make known. You Can’t Outgrow the Gospel. Others say the gospel is that God sent His Son to die for our sins. It will be visible to all, audible to all, and its accompanying judgment will be final for all. What has to be said about the cross when preaching the gospel is simply that Christ’s death is the ground on which Christ’s forgiveness is given. 1. Repentance begins in the heart and flows from there into action. In our own presentation of Christ’s gospel, therefore, we need to lay a similar stress on the cost of following Christ, and make sinners face it soberly before we urge them to respond to the message of free forgiveness. I am not at present asking you whether you think it is true to say that Christ died in order to save every single human being, past, present, and future, or not. In this we are not alone. TGM is edited by Wade Stanley and published by Doug Twaddell, Evangelists of the Church of Christ. But this is just the question that has to be raised when we speak about sin. “Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the end of the earth, everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory” (Isaiah 43:6–7).

THE BASIC GOSPEL - SALVATION MESSAGE (Dear friend, please read through this message below very slowly and carefully. It is a message made up of four essential ingredients. It tells us that we owe our very existence to Him; that for good or ill, we are always in His hands and under His eye; and that He made us to worship and serve Him, to show forth His praise and to live for His glory. Throughout the ages, God has called many messengers to speak to those who are near and to those who are far off. "Let Brotherly Love Continue," by Louis Garbi; "Election Year," by Rick Sparks; "Influence," by Tom Allen. Manasseh’s repentance is a bit jarring. For preaching the gospel, as we have just seen, means [calling] sinners to come to Jesus Christ, the living Savior, Who, by virtue of His atoning death, is able to forgive and save all those who put their trust in Him. “God...made the world...seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made...all nations...that they should seek the Lord” (Act 17:24-27). “God...commandeth all men every where to repent,” Paul told the Athenians (Act 17:30). The Gospel describes Jesus’ message as the gospel. In their concern to focus attention on the atoning death of Christ as the sole sufficient ground on which sinners may be accepted with God, they have expounded the summons to saving faith in these terms: “Believe that Christ died for your sins.” The effect of this exposition is to represent the saving work of Christ in the past, dissociated from His Person in the present, as the whole object of our trust. We must not, in presenting the gospel, isolate the cross and its benefits from the Christ Whose cross it was. What does Scripture say the gospel is? Many people think that the Gospel message is limited to the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. John the Baptizer - The good news of Jesus Christ—the Message!—begins here, following to the letter the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. Everybody’s life includes things that cause dissatisfaction and shame. It is not enough to resolve to turn from sin, give up evil habits, and try to put Christ’s teaching into practice by being religious and doing all possible good to others. What I mean is this: it is obvious that if a preacher thought that the statement, “Christ died for every one of you,” made to any congregation, would be unverifiable and probably not true, he would take care not to make it in his gospel preaching. The gospel is a message about God. This is My Comfort in My Affliction - Psalm 119:50. It needs to be said that faith is not a mere optimistic feeling, any more than repentance is a mere regretful or remorseful feeling. It tells us that we owe our very existence to Him; that for good or ill, we are always in His hands and under His eye; and that He made us to worship and serve Him, to show forth His praise and to live for His glory. Are You Ready For Wolf Attacks? The gospel is a bold message, and we are not ashamed of proclaiming it. 4. It would, in reality, be a mere conundrum, serving only to mystify...the truth is that you cannot make sense of the historic figure of Jesus until you know about the Incarnation—that this Jesus was in fact God the Son, made man to save sinners according to His Father’s eternal purpose. If Not, Why Pray? God loves you and has a plan for you. THE GOSPEL TRACT. Who wants to be known for who they were in their worst moments? Faith and repentance are both acts, and acts of the whole man...faith is essentially the casting and resting of oneself and one’s confidence on the promises of mercy which Christ has given to sinners, and on the Christ Who gave those promises. Our desire is: "That every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord!" When asked by His hearers what they should do in order to “work the works of God,” our Lord replied, “This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent” (Joh 6:29). So, when the Athenians asked him to explain what his talk of Jesus and the resurrection was all about, he spoke to them first of God the Creator and what He made man for.

Paul considered himself to have been called to be an apostle to preach the Gospel of God. Take some time to explore some of the core aspects of the gospel – it is the “power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16). Nor should we be preaching the gospel (though we might imagine we were) if all that we did was to present Christ in terms of a man’s felt wants: “Are you happy? “If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me...whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it” (Mat 16:24-25). Equally, repentance is more than just sorrow for the past; repentance is a change of mind and heart, a new life of denying self and serving the Savior as King in self’s place…Two further points need to be made also: (i) The demand is for faith as well as repentance. When this remark is made, however, what is usually being suggested is that doctrinal instruction is dispensable in evangelistic preaching, and that all the evangelist need do is paint a vivid word-picture of the man of Galilee who went about doing good, and then assure his hearers that this Jesus is still alive to help them in their troubles. For the very idea of sin in the Bible is of an offence against God that disrupts a man’s relationship with God. And in 1 John 3:23 we read: “This is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ...”. A Piercing Message. Time is limited: Benefit from Bible understanding. It does not, therefore, follow that a man is convicted of sin when he is distressed about his weaknesses and the wrong things he has done. The real gospel message is that salvation is by grace through faith (Rom. To most people the Holy Bible is … This being so, one thing becomes clear straight away: namely, that the question about the extent of the atonement, which is being much agitated in some quarters, has no bearing on the content of the evangelistic message at this particular point. "Just believe on the name of Jesus, and you'll be saved" is a common message of professing Christian ministers and Sunday morning "gospel programs." Aspiration, and resolution, and morality, and religiosity,[15] are no substitutes for faith...If there is to be faith, however, there must be a foundation of knowledge: a man must know of Christ, and of His cross, and of His promises before saving faith becomes a possibility for him. The gospel has been defined by many people in many ways. This is the most important message that you will ever need to hear. A fourth message I have from God to you is, that you be prepared to meet Him. God could see the changed heart. It is indeed true that the real Christ, the Christ of the Bible, Who [reveals] Himself to us as a Savior from sin and an Advocate with God, does in fact give peace, and joy, and moral strength, and the privilege of His own friendship to those who trust Him. Only when we have learned this can we see what sin is, and only when we see what sin is can we understand the good news of salvation from sin. That’s the gospel. Are the Poor and Minorities Really Better off under Progressive Policy? These truths are the foundation of theistic religion; and until they are grasped, the rest of the gospel message will seem neither cogent nor relevant. The gospel is not, “Believe that Christ died for everybody’s sins, and therefore for yours,” any more than it is, “Believe that Christ died only for certain people’s sins, and so perhaps not for yours”...We have no business to ask them to put faith in any view of the extent of the atonement. Today, however, when the average person hears the word “gospel,” he thinks of a more modern definition. What we have to grasp, then, is that the bad conscience of the natural man is not at all the same thing as conviction of sin. It is a normal thing for those whom God chooses to feel as though they are not worthy of this calling. I go on to urge you to comply with the gospel message, by a few MOTIVES AND ARGUMENTS. The gospel is a message about Christ—Christ, the Son of God incarnate; Christ, the Lamb of God, dying for sin; Christ, the risen Lord; Christ, the perfect Savior. Paul referred to this as “the word of the truth of the gospel” (Colossians 1:4-5). “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also (i.e., put them all decisively second in his esteem), he cannot be my disciple...whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple” (Luk 14:26, 33).

Authentic Biblical Justice, The Works of B. It is a universal message, for Jews and Gentiles both. Welcome to the True Gospel Message Web site. in … The question of the designed extent of the atonement does not come into the story at all...The fact is that the New Testament never calls on any man to repent on the ground that Christ died specifically and particularly for him. However, God’s plan of salvation began shortly after Adam and Eve rebelled against Him, if … G od created us to be with Him. That’s why the message of the ‘Jesus Seminar’ movement is so destructive. In Christianity, the gospel, or the Good News, is the news of the imminent coming of the Kingdom of God (Mark 1:14-15).. 6:23) – not faith and something you do like baptism or faith and speaking in tongues or faith and going to a Oneness church, etc. However, medication and therapy are not the ONLY resources that we have. But when preaching to Gentiles, who knew nothing of the Old Testament, Paul had to go further back and start from the beginning. But as important as that is, it is often given to massive distortions or over simplifications. '” We need to remember that while the gospel is a message of life, it is first a piercing message. Few among the kings of Israel or Judah are described as having such an evil character as Manasseh. 5. By promising two returns, the doctrine of “the Rapture” promises people a second chance—another seven years, according to LaHaye, another three and a half years, according to others—but a second chance all the same. Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines “gospel” as “a good or joyful message,” and relates it to the life of Christ and salvation. This very question was asked by a jailer in Philippi almost two thousand years ago (Acts 16:30). And this also is a necessary step. There is a pitfall here. The gospel is God’s good news revealed in the Bible. It is a saving message, the only thing that can truly reform the human heart. So, You Want To Downplay Doctrine? And where there is no clear knowledge, and hence no realistic recognition of the real claims that Christ makes, there can be no repentance, and therefore no salvation. Thus, it leads us to self-despair. It is true that it is the living Christ Who saves and that a theory of the atonement, however orthodox, is no substitute. What is the GOSPEL Journey message? The essential content of this saving message is clearly laid out for us in the Bible. Do you want a friend? Two points need to be made about the declaring of this part of the message: (i) We must not present the Person of Christ apart from His saving work. Nothing can be achieved by talking about sin and salvation where this preliminary lesson has not in some measure been learned. Nowhere in the New Testament is the call to believe expressed in such terms. The object of saving faith is thus not, strictly speaking, the atonement, but the Lord Jesus Christ, Who made atonement. And what a perfect opportunity! Isaiah knew that he was an unfit messenger. “Come unto me...and I will give you rest,” said our Lord (Mat 11:28). Gospel originally meant the Christian message, but in the 2nd century it came to be used also for the books in which the message was set out; in this sense a gospel can be defined as a loose-knit, episodic narrative of the words and deeds of Jesus of Nazareth, culminating in his trial and death and concluding with various reports of his post-resurrection appearances. Excerpt From Evangelism & the Sovereignty of God  by J. I. Packer. (ii) The demand is for repentance as well as faith...If there is to be repentance, however, there must, again, be a foundation of knowledge...More than once, Christ deliberately called attention to the radical break with the past that repentance involves. It tells us who He is, what His character is, what His standards are, and what He requires of us, His creatures. We can learn again from Paul at this point. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (Joh 3:16). It is the message of the good news of salvation, the word of truth offered to mankind by grace through faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross. The repentance that Christ requires of His people consists in a settled refusal to set any limit to the claims that He may make on their lives...He had no interest in gathering vast crowds of professed adherents who would melt away as soon as they found out what following Him actually demanded of them. You do not find such statements in the sermons of, for instance, George Whitefield or Charles Spurgeon. There is no other Gospel other Today in many ways our issues are exactly the opposite, as we are confronted by too much information. TGM is edited by Wade Stanley and published by Doug Twaddell, Evangelists of the Church of Christ. It tells us who He is, what His character is, what His standards are, and what He requires of us, His creatures. He accepted Manasseh even before worship was restored. The ‘Sexual Rights’ Movement Is Gaining Power Globally. It is sometimes said that it is the presentation of Christ’s Person, rather than of doctrines about Him, that draws sinners to His feet. We must be on our guard, therefore, against equating a natural bad conscience and sense of wretchedness with spiritual conviction of sin and so omitting in our evangelism to impress upon sinners the basic truth about their condition—namely, that their sin has alienated them from God and exposed them to His condemnation, and hostility, and wrath, so that their first need is for a restored relationship with Him... 3. Are you fed up with yourself? What the New Testament calls for is faith in (en) or into (eis) or upon (epi) Christ Himself—the placing of our trust in the living Savior Who died for sins. However, God received him back favorably. It shows us ourselves as God sees us and teaches us to think of ourselves as God thinks of us.
