The gospel is a message of the life, death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Why did He went on that cross? He did it because of our sins, “Who gave Himself for our sins that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father” Galatians 1: 4. Our sins separate us from God Romans 3:23. We were all hell bound, David said in Palms 51: 5(NLT) “For I was born a sinner- yes, from the moment my mother conceived me”.
“Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” John 1: 29. Jesus did not die for Christians only, in fact there was nothing like Christian when He was on earth. He died for the whole world. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life John 3: 16.
When He yielded up His Spirit, the veil of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom Matthew 27: 50 -51, opening for us the way to the presence of God, He put an end to the Old Testament temple and sacrificial system. Now only through His blood will can have access to God the Father. No more the sacrifice of animals. On that cross when He said “It is finished” John19: 28-30, the Old Testament system was done away with and a New covenant was established by His death on the cross.
When He was buried, He went to hell to disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacles of them triumphing over them in it Colossians 2: 15. When He rose up, He rose up to give us a New life- Eternal Life, His own very Life Romans 6: 3- 11. When He rose from the dead, He said to Mary “—-go to my brethren and say to them ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God” John 20: 17.
The resurrection of Jesus make God to be our Father and our God. We have His very Life. “And this is the testimony that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son, he who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life” 1 John 5: 11- 12.
This is only true for those who have received Jesus as there Lord and personal saviour, for salvation is personal. Every man shall give account individually, it’s not joint effort.
If you have not receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, you can’t have eternal life. If you die today, you will die in your sin and you will go to hell because eternal death is what is in you. But today can be a different day in your life.
“That if you confess with your month the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved, for with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” Romans 8: 9- 10.
Just say this prayer, believe it in your heart and confess with your mouth you shall be saved.
LORD JESUS CHRIST, I CONFESS YOU AS MY LORD AND PERSONAL SAVIOUR. I BELIEVE YOU DIED AND ROSE AGAIN FOR MY SALVATION. LORD JESUS, COME INTO MY HEART, FORGIVE ME MY SINS AND CLEANSE ME WITH YOUR BLOOD. I RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE INTO MY SPIRIT. THANK YOU JESUS FOR SAVING ME. AM NOW A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN (AMEN).
