The Gospel

The gospel is the good news! But in order to fully understand the fullness of the Gospel (good news), you must understand the fullness of the bad news. Jesus is both the ‘Messenger’ and the ‘Message’ of the Gospel. The great Scottish preacher, Horatius Bonar, said: “The Gospel… is good news about Jesus Christ, the Son of God; about what He is and what He did. He is the Word ” made flesh” (John 1:14). It is He whom the Father sent” in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin” (Rom 8:3). He was lifted up (John 12:32) and crucified- He died-He was buried-He rose on the third day-He went up into heaven and sat down on the Father’s right hand (Eph 1:20)-He ever liveth to make intercession for us (Rom 8:34). In these simple facts, which a child can understand, is contained the glorious Gospel of the blessed God. The remarkable thing about this good news is that it is, wholly respecting Jesus; not a word about ourselves (Eph 2:8-10). It is of His goodness, not ours, that the Gospel speaks! It is of His love to us, that it brings us the news; and it is the riches of His grace that it spreads out before us. A description of Jesus, and the things concerning Him- His person, His life, His death, His resurrection-this is the Gospel; and whosoever believeth this Gospel is a saves soul ( John 3: 15-16).”
