The gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ. The good news is the love of God sent down to each of us through the life of Christ. We are created in love. He
planned for us to want to be loved and to know we are lovable. But we are broken in sin. We rejected our creator, thinking we want something more. The results
was that instead of life, we found death.
Thankfully God sent a Savior to be a bridge. Despite our rejection of God, all along He had a plan. Love would have a name, a face and scars. His name was Jesus Christ.
We may hear the message but we actually receive it when we through faith give our lives back to God.
