Do you know what the gospel is? Another way to say the gospel is good news. Have you heard this good news of God’s love and salvation offered to humanity through faith in Jesus? Have you had the opportunity to read the gospel through the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in the New Testament of the Bible? Do you realize the benefits of believing it and receiving Jesus? There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus! There is no shame in the gospel for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes!
The gospel is for both Jews and Gentiles
Are you Jewish or Gentile? When it comes to the power of God for salvation from His wrath and punishment at the judgment seat of God, the gospel is for everyone. So, don’t be ashamed of the gospel but rather cling to it and receive it as a message of hope, truth, and love from God! Believe in Christ Jesus as your savior for that is the way to receive this power of God for salvation! Jesus went to the Jews first for the promise of God to Abraham and spoke to it starting with them and then going out to the rest of the world.
‘And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you [abundantly], And make your name great (exalted, distinguished); And you shall be a blessing [a source of great good to others]; And I will bless (do good for, benefit) those who bless you, And I will curse [that is, subject to My wrath and judgment] the one who curses (despises, dishonors, has contempt for) you. And in you all the families (nations) of the earth will be blessed.” ‘Genesis 12:2-3
