The True Gospel of Jesus Christ
The Gospel of Jesus Christ

God is reaching out to you to join His family. It does not matter what you have done in your life; whether you have done the most terrible things or you think you are good person, you need the Savior. Jesus has already restored everything that was wrong in your relationship with God. All you have to do is to accept and believe what Christ did for you.


Here is what Jesus accomplished for all people, including you: Jesus defeated sin forever on His Cross and He conquered death by His resurrection. Because of the Cross of Christ, God forgave all of your sins - every one of them, for all time - even if you have not yet accepted Christ as Savior. God did this because He wants you to know His Son, Jesus. Knowing Jesus is not about religion at all; rather, it is about new life.


This new life was made possible because Jesus conquered death by His resurrection, never to die again. When you trust Christ as your Savior, God completely removes your old inner you with all of its faults and problems, and replaces it with a brand new inner you. You become an entirely new person on the inside. Your "new self" is perfectly righteous because the Righteous One now lives in you. Not only that, you possess Christ's eternal life as well! This is the Good News, the Gospel, that the Bible teaches.
(Below in "The Good News in More Detail," see #4 below to find out why people often do not experience this new righteous life.)

The Good News in More Detail
1. The Gospel of Jesus Christ begins with the truth that all your sins were forever forgiven by God on the Cross of Jesus Christ (Mark 3:28; 2 Corinthians 5:19Colossians 1:20). Everyone, believers and unbelievers alike, is forgiven of every single sin, past, present, and future (1 John 2:2). Only unbelief cannot be forgiven because rejecting Christ is rejecting the eternal life that is found only in Him (1 John 1:2; 5:11). This is the difference between believers and unbelievers; both are forgiven but unbelievers do not have Christ's eternal life living in them.

 

Note: Religion teaches conditional forgiveness; it says you must repent of your sins and believe before you are forgiven. But the Bible teaches that forgiveness happened one time on the Cross of Christ, not after, (Hebrews 10:12,18) and this is the reason that everyone is forgiven (Romans 6:10; Hebrews 2:9b). Forgiveness for everyone confuses many because of the false belief that forgiveness is the same thing as salvation. Salvation is receiving a new heart and sharing Christ's eternal life for those who trust Him as Savior (1 John 5:12).


Note: heart, spirit and nature all mean the same thing and are used interchangeably.
2. The second half of the Gospel, the part that is often missed, is this new life that is in Christ Jesus. When you trust Jesus as your Savior, God literally removes your old sinful inner nature and replaces it with a brand new heart (Romans 6:6 Ezekiel 36:26; Ezekiel 11:19). You become a completely new person on the inside; the old inner you is gone, dead and buried forever (2 Corinthians 5:17). You have been rescued from the domain of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:13).
 

3. Since your new spirit is clean and without sin, it is a suitable dwelling place for the Spirit of God. Jesus comes to live in you and joins His Spirit eternally as one to you (1 Corinthians 6:17). Because Jesus now lives in you, you are forever free from sin in your born again heart (Romans 6:7,18,22). Your inner spirit is the real you, the part of you that will live on into eternity; your body is a temporary "earth suit" which will go to the grave when you die (2 Corinthians 4:7,16). Note: Jesus living in you and the Holy Spirit living in you mean the same thing and are used interchangeably. ("Earth suit" was coined by the author Bill Gillham)

 

4. As a believer, you are now a righteous spiritual person (2 Peter 1:4Romans 8:10b) living in a not-yet-righteous and not-yet-redeemed mortal body. Your "earth suit" is still dead because of sin (Romans 8:10a); it does not have the capacity to be righteous. But, in your born again heart, you can never sin because Jesus in you can never sin (1 John 3:9). You can, however, still sin in your outer mortal body. This is the reason believers live by faith. Faith is not like most people think; it is not like a muscle to be developed. Rather, faith is really the faithfulness of Christ in you as He lives out His righteous life through you (Galatians 2:20). As you follow Christ's life, you will experience a righteous and productive life (Galatians 5:16).
