To make everyone fulfil the main instruction and purpose in Christ
Mar 16:15 - 18 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
What is the Gospel? What has it got to do with me? I have been told that in this country everyone minds his own business so who do I obey? How do you communicate it to people who do not know about it? Do Christians know, understand and can communicate the Gospel? What is the difference between the gospel and other religions?
Who gave the instruction in the scripture above and to whom was it given?
Why do I have to preach the Gospel? Mar 8:35
But I am shy? Ps 28:1, Acts 13:46, 1 Th 2:2
What does gospel mean and what does it me to you?
God created this world and gave man specific instructions on how to walk and keep it. Gen 1:27-28,
Man decided not to walk in the ways of the Lord but in his own ways not acknowledging god, Gen 6:5-7, Prov 14:12
Sin enters in and we are condemned. Gen 4:7, Gen 18:20, 1Jhn 3:8-9, 1Jhn 2:1, 1Jhn 1:7
The wages of Sin is death and Hell Rom 6:23
Jesus Christ came to deliver us from this condemnation and destination Jhn 3:16-19, 5:24, Rom 5:15, 8:1-2
He died on the cross of Calvary and shed his blood as an atonement (replacement) for our sins i.e. he bought us back, paid the price to redeem us from eternal death, Heb 9:22, Mat 26:28
He rose up the 3rd day to prove that he is lord of all. Mat 26:6, 32, 28:7, Mar 16;6
He presented us and all that believe in him with a GIFT of eternal life in him i.e. now we can be citizens of heaven and become the sons of God. Eph 2:8, Rom 6:23
the meaning of the gospel and its content.
We will discuss “what are the benefits of giving your life to Christ?
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
