The Gospel changes everything about us.
God created us in His image. We were made to experience a personal relationship with Him. Yet, our sin separated us from Him. God promised to solve our sin problem and He did so in the person and work of the Messiah, Jesus Christ. The Gospel is God's answer to our sin problem. Jesus died in our place, was buried, and rose again to conquer the death penalty of our sin and to offer for us His righteousness for life as a free gift. Believing the gospel of Jesus Christ changes us from death to life. Jesus says, "He that believes in me has everlasting life."
The Holy Spirit empowers us
--to know the Gospel.
"When you read this, you can perceive my insight into the mystery of Christ, This mystery is that the Gentiles are fellow heirs, members of the same body, and partakers of the promise in Christ Jesus through the Gospel." Ephesians 3:4-6
--to be transformed by the Gospel.
"I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:1-2
--and to share the Gospel.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witness in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8
