The message of the Gospel must be a resounding hymn on the lips of all who profess to be Christian, since this is the message that we have been entrusted to present to the world, and this is because there is no other exposition more intriguing and passionate that the gospel.
I firmly believe that no message can convince a soul of sin more than the gospel. We can talk about how painful hell will be, we can talk about healing and miracles, we can talk about prosperity, we can talk about a million things, but all that vanishes in the face of the gospel message.
The Bible says that the gospel is news, but not any news, but good news, good news of salvation. And the church today has to bring this message back to the pulpits, since it is the essence of the church, if this is not preached in the churches, then we are wasting time.
Let’s go back, what is the gospel? It is a basic definition, but the basic is not unimportant. The gospel is that Christ being God became man and dwelt among men, bearing all our reproach on his shoulders, carrying our guilt for our justification and thus save us from the wrath of God.
Jesus himself gave ordinances that this message had to be preached:
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Jesus said we have to preach this message, are we doing it? Have we found a better message by which to replace it? I go back and say, there is no better message, there is no more convincing message, this is the true message, these are the good news and we must take them to humanity so that they can be saved.
Let’s animate ourselves, and if we are not preaching this message, let’s start doing it, taking it around the world, including our social networks, but let’s do it, let’s tell everybody how good our God is and that in this world there is nothing that gives us more satisfaction than belong to God.
