How much do you believe that God loves His own Son, Jesus Christ? It is a love so great that it cannot even be imagined. Did you know that no matter who you are or what you have ever done, God loves you exactly the same as He loves His own Son (John 17:23). The Gospel of Jesus Christ is good news, not bad news. It is based, not on anything you have done or will do, but on the already finished work of Jesus Christ. Your sins are already forgiven; you never have to worry about them again. And, God will give a new heart filled with His own life to anyone who believes.
This is the Gospel as the Apostles taught it:
1. Forgiven: The sins of all people throughout history were forgiven and forgotten on the Cross of Jesus Christ. Only the eternal sin of unbelief was not forgiven. Forgiveness is no longer the issue; unbelief and a sinful nature are the two remaining issues in salvation.
2. Saved Through Faith: All are forgiven but not all are saved. Only when that last sin of unbelief is turned to faith in Jesus Christ will God remove your old sinful nature and replace it with a new heart.
3. Born Again: With a new heart, you become a "clean vessel"; the Holy Spirit now has a place within you to live. God's indwelling presence makes you literally righteous because the Righteous One has joined as one with you in your born again spirit. And, you possess eternal life because Eternal Life now dwells in you.
4. Living By Faith: You still "live" in the same mortal "tent" as you did before your were saved. Your physical body has not yet been redeemed; it awaits a future redemption (Romans 8:23b). Unlike your redeemed and righteous inner spirit, your mortal body remains dead because of sin (Romans 8:10). This is the specific reason you live by faith since you cannot live righteously by your own human strength and works. As you follow in faith the indwelling life of Jesus Christ, He will live out His righteous life in you and do His good works through you.
Note: the "Holy Spirit living in you" and "Jesus living in you" mean the very same thing. See Galatians 2:20 and Romans 8:9-10.
Caution: There are literally dozens of different "gospels" out there, each being presented as the "one true way." God has provided an exacting method for you to understand the Bible so that you will know with certainty what the Apostles really taught. Click Here
