First of all, what is the gospel? It means the Good News. Most of us are rather fed up with hearing bad news today, but there is One mighty true Gospel of God’s Grace that stands supreme over all.
It is that true Gospel in the Bible, which only can make man wise unto salvation. It is the proclaiming that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. It is Him and Him crucified, buried and risen again, and now seated on God the Father’s right hand in heaven.
I can boldly say “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the POWER of God unto salvation, to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first, and also to the Greek (Gentiles). Romans 1 v. 16
The true gospel is all of God’s grace and mercy in saving sinners, out of the world, in every nation, kindred, tribe and tongue. It reaches into the very heart of man, and changes him from being dead in trespasses and sins, into the light of Christ. Things which man once despised, has now become the things which he loves. He has a new nature which whereby he only desires to love and serve the Lord, who has brought him to repentance and faith, and it is being found when once lost, and in the world of darkness. A radical change has taken place and he knows it was nothing of himself. The grace of God has reached him and he knows that God is real.
He will want to reach out and tell others of his new faith, and others will despise him because of it. But nevertheless, he knows that something wonderful has happened to him, and he gives all the glory to God. His faith will be sorely tested, but that will only increase his joy in Christ.
The true gospel of God’s grace in Christ, is the glory of Christ. Few have it, but it is so precious. He knows that his life is now hid in Christ with God, and that he now serves and loves God with his whole heart.
There are many false gospels around, which say if you do something yourself, and make a decision for Christ, you are saved, but this is not true, for no-one can choose for Christ, unless he is regenerated first by the power of the Holy Spirit. There are many “professors” but not many “possessors” who know that they were brought to Christ by hearing the Word of God in power.
The Lord Jesus Christ said “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.” John 14 v. 6
Get a King James Version Bible and read the gospels found at the beginning of the New Testament (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) and if God has chosen you to salvation, you will hear the Word of the true gospel and live. God has brought you from death to life, and you will spend eternity with Christ.
