The gospel isn’t moral conformity, which is religion, nor is it self-discovery, which is secularism.
It isn’t something which we do; rather, it’s something that has been done for us. It isn’t a divine rehabilitation program for us or the world. It is, rather, a finished work that was done on our behalf. It is the grace of God poured out on us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. And it is our singular focus and engine of transformation.
Here, then, are several worthy summaries of the gospel — and some thoughts on what happens when we believe it.
