What is the Gospel message?

I am sending you to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’ (Acts 26:15-18)

To break it down, Jesus sends believers to share the power of the Gospel message that

  1. Opens eyes – brings revelation of spiritual truth
  2. Brings about change in direction, a turning from a life of darkness and sin to a life of light and righteousness
  3. Delivers us from the power of Satan (Sin and Death) into the power of God (Life and Resurrection and be born again)
  4. Proclaims forgiveness of Sin – the wages of Sin have been paid for through the sacrificial death of Jesus, available to all who believe and receive by faith
  5. Proclaims the Kingdom of Heaven as an eternal inheritance and right to those who believe
  6. Reconciles man to God and justifies all as righteous before God
  7. Sanctifies or sets us apart and makes us holy as God’s people

 “For I am not ashamed of the Good News, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who trusts—to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16)

Good news – not condemnation but salvation - God’s plan for salvation

Power over Sin and Death / Promise of Eternal Life in the Kingdom of God

In summary, the Gospel is the Good news that can Open eyes to spiritual truths and Set captives free from a life of darkness into light, by His Power of victory over sin and death on Earth, for the inheritance of Life everlasting in the Kingdom of God.
