ROMANS 5:18 NLT
18 Yes, Adam's one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but
Christ's one act of righteousness brings a right relationship
with God and new life for everyone.
Gospel means good news. It was not originally a religious word,
but meant good news which makes people happy and excited.
If what you have heard about Jesus Christ does not make you
happy and excited, then you have not yet truly heard and
understood the Gospel as it is meant to be understood.
The basic outline is that Jesus of Nazareth, who was God in a
human body, took your place in judgment, paying the penalty
for all your sins, and gave you the blessing He deserved
because of His perfect sinless life.
God, the Creator, and Sustainer of the universe, loves you
enough to die for you. That's good news!
Jesus took what you deserved, and gave you what He deserved!
That's good news!
And this is not limited to just you. Jesus died for all
mankind. Deliverance from sin, its effects and penalty is
available to anyone and everyone who will believe and receive
Jesus Christ as Lord.
ROMANS 1:16 NLT
16 For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is
the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes — the
Jew first and also the Gentile.
God is on your side — not against you. That's good news!
If you do not get so excited you can hardly contain your
excitement, you have not fully understood the Gospel.
2 CORINTHIANS 4:4 NLT
4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of
those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious
light of the Good News. They don't understand this message
about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.
If you can keep yourself from telling others about Jesus, you
have not yet understood the Gospel.
SAY THIS: The Gospel of Jesus Christ is GREAT news!
