The gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ, the savior of the world. We have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory and his will, in what we have done and what we have not done. Christ, the lord of creation and the cosmos, came to suffer and die for our sakes. Even more, the gospel has implications for all of life and for all of creation. The good news, the reality of Christ’s sacrifice, resurrection, and rule, reaches as far as sin does.
