A simple statement of The Gospel
The Good news of what God has doe for us through the death of Jesus
God made mankind to have an intimate and personal relationship with Him and for all the good things He could do for mankind. There was no other possible reason for God making mankind as God did not need anything mankind could give Him because He was complete in Himself.
At some time everyone has deliberately rejected Godís requirements of them by disobeying them in some way and by this destroyed the relationship they had with God (Rom 3:23)
This rebellion is treason against the king of the universe (God) and is punished by death (Rom 6:23):
Physical death on earth
Spiritual death after we die by not being able to go to be with God in heaven so have to go to the ony other place possible Ė hell.
God shows how much He Loves us because He came as Jesus to die for us to be able to relate to Him again even though we were in a state of rebellious treason against Him (Rom 5:8).
Everyone must face God when they die to be judged on how well the obeyed the King (Heb 9:27).
The main reason Jesus died on the cross was to remove all that stopped us relating to God in an intimate and personal way (Eph 2:14-18).
You must believe in whom Jesus is, what He has done for and what He told you of how God requires of you to live (John 5:24) Rom 10:9-10).
He restores us to this relationship with God by remove every barrier between us and God (Eph 2:14).
It is a gift of God, an expression of His Love (Eph 2:8-9).
God changes our spirit removing all the defilement in it that stopped us relating to God and being with Him in heaven and gives us a new start in life (2 Chron 5:17 Titus 3:5)
This results in an intimate personal relationship with God which is the basis of eternal life (Joihn17:3).
It was an act of Godís Love for us and all He asks is for us to love Him back and keep His requirements of us (John 14:15).
He gives us the presence of His Spirit in our spirit to show we belong to Him and His Spirit walks beside us to help us in our Christian life (Rom 8:16, John 16:13, Rom 8:26-27).
But you must be willing to die for this belief in Jesus and if you truly believe in who He is and what He has done you will do so (Mat 24:13. Rwv 12:11)
According to who you believe Jesus is will be your obedience and salvation.
