A variety of viewpoints are presented from our religious, political, and economic spectrums, but only the absolute truth of the gospel of Christ has the message that ultimately answers the most pressing questions and serious concerns of the human soul. The book is concerned with encouraging and helping church leaders bring spiritual renewal to their people through the biblical gospel.

What is the Gospel? Part 3

The gospel leads us to repentance and those who put their faith in Christ and acknowledge him as Savior and Lord have eternal life and a new status before God. Our relationship with God is restored and reestablished through Christ's perfect work. The good news is that believers reap the undeserved and life-changing promises of a loving and merciful God: forgiven, redeemed, a new creation, child of God, adopted, justified, holy, and righteous (John 1:12 ; II Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:16 ; Colossians 1:22 ; I John 1:23 ). We also have been given a new heart (Psalm 51:10 ; Ezekiel 11:19 , 36:26; Romans 6:6-7 ) and new hope (Colossians 1:23 ), an inheritance in Christ "that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you" (I Peter 1:3-4). Only the gospel brings us faith, hope, and love (I Corinthians 13:13). One day we will finally be delivered from the temptation and power of sin and God will make all things new (Revelation 21:1-5 ), but in the meantime we are comforted, taught, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to know, love, and follow Jesus all the days of our lives (John 14:26 , 16:13; Acts 2:8 ).
