  1. The Gospel:

    Plain and

    Simple

    “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent

    beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your

    minds should be corrupted from the simplicity

    that is in Christ.” – 2 Corithians 11:3

    Ask someone today if they are saved and

    you will most likely hear responses like these:

    “I have accepted Jesus into my heart.” Or “I

    have made him Lord of my life.” “I’ve been

    baptized.” “I said a prayer.” Sounds all good

    and churchy don’t it; but it is difficult to de-termine whether or not a person actually

    knows the gospel that saves them. These use less phrases don’t describe a thing about what

    the gospel is and has left a devastating effect

    of people not knowing what it is that they are

    saved from nor how they are saved; which

    leaves a more serious effect of people ques tioning their salvation.

    Let’s not muddy the simplicity of salva tion that is in Christ with vague church

    sounding phrases that do not communicate

    anything. But rather present God’s word with

    clarity and assuredness. So here is the gospel:

    plain and simple.

    Sin was passed upon all men by one man

    Adam, and death is a consequence of this sin

    (Rom 5:12). Mankind has an eternal destiny of

    condemnation and wrath – Hell – because of

    this sin (Rom 6:23). No matter what good

    works one might do we are still found sinners

    in the sight of our Creator God. And all un righteousness and those who follow get in dignation and wrath. We cannot be found

    righteous for by God’s law we are found sin ners (Rom 3:19-20). If we have broken even

    one law we are found guilty.

    It is for this reason of not being able to

    create our own righteousness and being born

    in a sinful flesh that we need a savior (Titus

    3:5). Christ is that Savior, God manifested in

    the flesh, sinless, died in our place on a cross

    2000 years ago. Taking upon him the wrath

    and judgement that was intended for us sin ners. And it is through his bloodshed, burial,

    and resurrection on our behalf that we are

    able to have peace with God and forgiveness

    of our sins (1 Cor 15:1-4, Col 3:14). This good

    news is unto all but only those that believe in

    it are made righteous in Christ (Romans

    3:22).

    It is then after we have heard this good

    news of Christ’s righteousness available to us freely, that we are sealed with the Holy Spirit

    and we are now part of Christ’s body the

    church (Eph 1:13)

    There is nothing that we need to do, no

    good works that are required, and no bad

    works that can separate us from our new po sition in Christ (Romans 8:35-39).

    Faith and belief in this information from

    God’s word is the gospel.

    The gospel is not accepting Jesus into your

    heart. The gospel is not making him lord of

    your life, it is not saying a prayer and it is not

    being baptized with water.

    So next time someone asks you if you are

    saved. Give them the clear assured answer

    “Yes! And let me tell you why!”
