This week we have looked at gospel for the young people. We have explained that the word gospel comes from the Anglo-Saxon word which means, “the story concerning God”. The Greek word
euagellion used in the New Testament means “good news or message (of the kingdom). The good news is that, Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, that he was buried and was raised from the dead.
We have also pointed out that the gospel of Christ is love. That God demonstrated his love for us that while we were still sinning, he died for us. We did not love him but he loved us and died a sacrificial and atoning death because of us. This love is made available to all and is unconditional.
Again, we have learnt that the gospel of Christ is the power of God for salvation to all who believe in Christ Jesus. The gospel of Christ is powerful to forgive all our sins and make us his children. It is only Jesus Christ who can wash away your sin. Jesus Christ is also the only Saviour of the world. We have seen that; you cannot come to the Father unless you give your life to Jesus. He is the way, the truth and the life.
Moreover, we also found out in this week that, Jesus Christ has the power to heal all sorts of diseases and infirmities. The healthy do not need a doctor but the sick, and he did not come to call the righteous but the sinner into repentance. If we accept him as Lord and Saviour, he will save us and heal us.
Above all, this same Jesus who died for us, and was buried and resurrected on the third day and ascended to heaven will come as he has promised. Jesus Christ will come again. Make a decision today and give your life to Jesus.
