4 Parts of The Gospel of Jesus Christ – Part 3
In Part 1 and Part 2 we searched the Bible to find the first 2 of the 4 parts of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have learned that there are many people that are church going, moral and religious people that think they are saved but are not. They think they have a right relationship with God but they do not.
And we learned the first 2 parts of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. God loves all people deeply, and He wants all to have peace with Him and eternal life in heaven with Him. But many people do not because of a big problem. And all of us have this big problem. Sin. Sin causes us to have a broken relationship with God and to be separated from God and His love and mercy.
Part 3 of 4 Parts Of The Gospel Of Jesus Christ
Now we will continue our study of God’s Word to learn the 3rd part of the Gospel. The Good News. Because of God’s great love for us, He sent the solution to our problem of sin and separation from God. He sent The Way for us to have peace with God and eternal life in heaven.
Part 3 of 4 Parts Of The Gospel of Jesus Christ : God’s Solution To Our Problem of Sin
This is the best part of the Gospel message. Because God loves us so much and so passionately, He sent the solution to our problem. The Bible tells us that God does not want eternal separation from Him and eternal punishment for anyone. He wants all people to be saved and to have a restored relationship with Him and peace with Him and eternal life in heaven.
- “God does not want anyone to perish (to die spiritually and forever be separated from God, and to have eternal punishment for their sins), but everyone to come to repentance.” – 2 Peter 3:9
God’s Solution: His Son Jesus Christ
God’s solution is this: He sent His own Son Jesus Christ to earth in a form that we could recognize and understand… as a human person. God sent Jesus to suffer and to die on a cross. Why would God send His own son to suffer and die such a horrible and painful death ?
God is love and He is a merciful God, but He is also perfectly holy and just, and He cannot let our sins slide without a punishment. Someone has to pay the price and punishment for our sins, and if someone does not help us, we will have to pay the terrible price for our sins against God. So Jesus, out of His great love for us, sacrificed everything including His life, to help us and to pay the price for our sins.
- “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
The Gospel Of Jesus Christ
Jesus Is The Only Solution to The Problem Of Sin
Jesus is God’s one and only solution to our problem of sin and separation from God and eternal punishment.
- John 14:6 “Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one may come to the Father except through me.”
- “For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ.” – I Timothy 2:5
- “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God.” – I Peter 3:18
- “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” – Romans 5:8
In Part 4 of The 4 Parts Of The Gospel Of Jesus Christ next week we will look at something very important. What are the requirements for true salvation ? There are many people today that believe in their heart that they are saved, most of which are members of churches. Even mainline evangelical churches. They are under the impression that because they said a quick prayer about confessing their sins and asking Jesus to be their Lord and Savior that they are saved… that they have a restored relationship with God and eternal life in heaven. The Bible clearly shows what is required for salvation.
