THE GOSPEL

Read: Galatians 1

Key Verse: “Which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.” - Galatians 1:7

There are many false gospels, but only one true gospel. Every false gospel is no gospel at all. Every other religion in the world rejects the gospel of Jesus Christ. Gospel means ‘good news’, why would anyone try to change or detract from the best news ever given to mankind? Have you ever been confused about the gospel? Galatians is a very important letter regarding the clarity of the gospel.

The essence of the gospel is that God has made all of us in His own image. Every single person has rebelled and sinned against God. God sent His Son Jesus Christ to pay the full penalty for our sins on the cross. Jesus is risen from the grave, and promises eternal life and a place in heaven to every person who puts their trust in Him. Following Jesus includes repenting (turning from sin and to the Lord) and being born again. Salvation can not be earned, it is by His grace (an undeserved gift). Are you born again? Who can humbly share the real gospel with this week?
