I'm a New Believer
Now that you've entered into a relationship with Jesus, you're saved from the penalty and life of sin you once lived, and you will hear the word "gospel" a lot. It's one of many new words you'll discover as a Christian, much like learning a new sport or diving deep into a hobby, there is a vocabulary that’s specific to whatever you're learning. The word 'gospel' literally translates as "good news". We've found it helpful to unpack what "Gospel" means through these 5 words that sum up the good news of Jesus Christ!
What do you know about God?
To you it was shown, that you might know that the Lord is God; there is no other besides him.
If God created me to be in a relationship with Him, why does He seem so distant and far away?
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Did you know God is love?
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
2 Corinthians 5:21
“Good,” you might think, “God’s plan took care of things for me.”
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.
The benefit of believing in Jesus is much more than having your sins forgiven. It is also about receiving true life.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.
Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:12
This is the Gospel.
It’s THE foundation of our faith.
