Truth About The Foundation Of The Gospel
Posted on October 2, 2019 8:00 AM by Faith Sites
The purpose of a church is to spread the gospel to churchgoers and online visitors. Most preachers understand this, but many ministry websites struggle to explain the meaning of the gospel. It would be unreasonable to ridicule them for this since preachers all over face the same struggle. At the core, the gospel is about the work of God and to have faith in his message.
Renewing All Things
Even though the world is broken in some aspects, there are moments of joy and seasons of individual or collective success that result in happiness. But people also encounter pain, suffering, and worst of all, death. This is because they live in a sinful, corrupt world and God desires better for them.
Through the redeeming work of Christ, he has promised to forgive if we confess our sins and he has a perfect plan for us. The work of restorations begins with Jesus, the author and source of all renewal.
People need a savior as they will perish one day and all of them have sinned in one way or another. As sinful souls, they don’t have the means nor the strength to save themselves. This is why Jesus came; not to give people a second chance to earn God’s favor but to stand on the cross for them. According to Romans 5:9, “Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!”
As a result, people can receive the gift of eternal life. However, religion presents a series of rules that people must follow to see salvation. Ministry websites need to emphasize the fact that the gospel places Christ at the center of salvation and renewal. Trust in the gospel as it can be a guide and a great resource for how you should keep your faith during difficult times.
