The Gospel is the power of God to save all who believe - but what is the Gospel, and what must God’s children believe about it if they are to seek to see the lost saved through it?

We consider each of these points: 

  • First, you must be convinced that the Bible is God’s Word - because it is the only source of this Gospel. 
  • Second, you must be convinced that not only you, but that everyone needs this Gospel - that there is no hope for them apart from the Gospel. 
  • Third, you must be convinced that God works through the Gospel alone to raise those who are spiritually dead. 
  • And finally, you must have a love for the Lord and His Gospel that is strong enough to overcome any obstacle - otherwise you will either be afraid or ashamed to tell others about Jesus Christ, even if you have the above convictions.
