The gospel is good news – a royal announcement that Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of God. He lived a perfect life in our place, died on the cross for our sins, was raised to launch God’s new creation, and is now exalted as King of the world. This is news that calls for a response: repentance (that means turning from sin, and trading our own personal agendas for the kingdom agenda of Jesus) and faith (that means to turning to God, believing the good news, trusting Jesus alone for our salvation, and seeking to walk in faith in His promises). If the gospel is true, everything changes. We can’t say we believe that message and then just go on living as if everything is the same.
