The Gospel

 

 

The Gospel, or Good News, is that the one and only God, who is holy, made us in His image to know Him. But, we sinned and cut ourselves off from Him. In His great love, God became a man in Jesus, lived a perfect life, and died on the cross, thus fulfilling the law Himself and taking on Himself the punishment for the sins of all those who would ever turn and trust in Him. He rose again from the dead, showing that God accepted Christ’s sacrifice and that God’s wrath against us had been exhausted. He now calls us to repent of our sins and to trust in Christ alone for our forgiveness. If we repent of our sins and trust in Christ, we are born again into a new life with God. (Mark Dever, The Gospel and Personal Evangelism, pg. 43)
