The Gospel by us

The Gospel, we all know it right? We know its that we have all sinned, fallen short of Gods Commands, but because God loved us so much He sent His Son Jesus Christ who was fully God, Fully Man and died an innocent death on the cross. Finally on the third day He defeated death and rose from the grave victorious over death and sin. That if we believe and confess that Jesus Chris is Lord then we are covered by His work on the Cross before a Holy God and that we have eternal life.

Seems pretty simple right? Something I’ve learned though is that we have made the Gospel into a lot of other things. Some examples are I have been told that if I didn’t vote for Donald Trump that I’m not saved or a true christian, you see the memes that if you click like you love Jesus ignore to love Satan, or if you are not living your best life now then you may not truly be following God or because you don’t believe the exact same way I do you can’t be save.

Now let me tell you something, The gospel is not you party affiliation, Its not if you click like or share, its not about how abundantly blessed your life is. The Gospel is that we are all screwed up and we needed a savior. There is nothing we can do about it. It is all God. He calls us to Himself, He died on the Cross, He rose again. We did nothing. Just raising your hand at a revival or saying some prayer does not get you saved. Serving some guy in a fancy hat and white robe in Italy does not get you saved. Jesus Saves!!! You can not work your way into heaven, because the Bible says in Isaiah 64:6

“We have all become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a polluted garment. We all fade like a leaf, and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away.”

We have no ability to work our way into heaven. We are sinners. One sin makes us guilty before God!!! The Gospel is being twisted in this generation more and more. We have to retake the Gospel we have to take it to our families, our cities and all over. Simply because Jesus Saves not all this other stuff that western culture likes to feed the world. We need to tell the world the truth. That Jesus Saves. That He died for us. He rose for us. That we can spend eternity with Him in heaven if we believe.

Thanks for reading as always feel free to leave comments.
