The gospel is the good news that Christ lived a perfect life, died on the cross, and rose from the dead to satisfy God's wrathful judgment on the world. Because of Jesus' payment in full for OUR debt, it is now possible for anyone to receive salvation through a living faith in Christ.

what he did is he paid the price for my sin! the last words that he said on the cross were" it is finished!" which means god can legally dismiss my case and I can walk out of the courtroom bc Jesus paid my fine in full! salvation is a free gift to all those who repent and trust in him! I believe in him because he fulfilled all the prophecies made about him exactly, when they were written way before he was even born. he spoke with the greatest authority in the history of man kind. even those that hated him could not believe the way this man spoke! he healed the sick, he cleansed the lepers , he raised the dead he forgave sinners . he claimed to be the way, the truth, and the life and that NO man come to the father but by him...all the attributes of God were in him! he was the son of God making himself equal with God! he knew his sole purpose on the earth was to die on the Calvary cross for the sin of the world! the word said it pleased the father to crush the son! he bore the weight of the worlds sin on his shoulders! the ONlY all sufficient savior! he was whipped almost to death, beat up, spat on nailed to a cross for hours! but he still knew his mission! to die for the sins of the world so that we ourselves wouldn't have to! he died but then rose from the dead and defeated death! the grab could not hold him! he's the king of kings and lord of lords! he paid the ultimate sacrifice for our sins that great day but the sad thing is most people want to pay their own bail, paying it with their very souls... salvation is a FREE gift to all those who repent and trust in him!
He has made Heaven possible for me.... I know He is real because I feel His love in my heart ... REVELATION 21 SAYS..... 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. 22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. 23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. HE IS MY SAVIOR.
Let me now remind you, dear brothers and sisters, of the Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then, and you still stand firm in it. It is this Good News that saves you if you continue to believe the message I told you?unless, of course, you believed something that was never true in the first place. I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. He was seen by Peter and then by the Twelve. After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles. Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him. For I am the least of all the apostles. In fact, I?m not even worthy to be called an apostle after the way I persecuted God?s church. But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me?and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by his grace. (1 Corinthians 15:1-10 NLT)
I believe in Jesus as my Lord and Savior because He became real in my life 30 years ago when He delivered me from the power of sin though the power of the Holy Spirit. And now He has healed me of stage 4 cancer. Praise Jesus!
By H i s Holy Spirit, Jesus Christ of Nazareth Has Drawn Me To Know H i m In A Very Personal Way. He Loves And Empowers Me In Spite of My Short Comings. He Gives Me Peace, Power a n d Provision. He Loves Me And I Love Him Too. Glory. Lol.
Christ is my savior and redeemer, an unfailing friend and guide. He understands exactly how I feel because he suffered all for me. I know he is real and that he lives. He died for each of us and was resurrected 3 days later. I have felt so much peace in my life because he is there for me, always I my heart and on my mind.
Did you read the bible? The word "Christ" is the Greek translation for annointed or mesiah. The "annointed" was supposed to be a member of the Davidic line and could thus qualify as King of Judea. To be the annointed one or mesiah or king of the jews is tantamount to treason and the Romans would have naturally executed him. Also note that Cyrus was also called the messiah after he allowed the Jews to return to Judea. But we don't pray to Cyrus. Why would you pray to a wanna-be king?
