Gospel 101 - key points of the Good News in few words - Prayer Tents

What is the Gospel?

God created us, from Adam and Eve, to have a close relationship with us.

However, a problem with disobedience to God called sin separated us from God. People tried to bridge this gap, but it was not possible because of the perfect standard of God. God had a plan to resolve this issue because this was something only He could resolve. (The only prerogative of God, not something we can do)

This plan was to restore our relationship by giving us the hearts that enables us to love God and follow His commands (Deuteronomy 30:6, 10; Ezekiel 36:26-27). God's people would have hearts and actions aligned with His. They would not operate out of duty (religion) but because they want to.

The result of this plan would be a continual relationship with God – He would be with us and be our guide. He does this by sending His Spirit to dwell in our hearts.

Who can receive the Holy Spirit so they may dwell with the Lord at all times? Those who are perfectly holy, a pure sanctuary. (One who is recognized without sin)

Sin was the original problem we began with, remember? For this reason, God came down to earth Himself (called the Son whose Name is Jesus) to make a permanent sacrifice for all. Anyone who believes in Jesus and what He has done will be considered as if they have no sin, which means they are pure and acceptable before God. (c.f. John 3:16; Hebrews 10:1-23; 1Peter 2:4-5; 1Corinthians 3:16-17, 6:19; Romans 12:1). That is how we can be recognized to be without sin.

Anyone with the Holy Spirit living in them is said to be born again with the Spirit of God. We will live eternally with God with joy and reign over many things, as it was intended in the original Garden.

Then, the Good News of the Bible is this:

Believe in God, and you will have a relationship with Him. He will enable you to love Him and follow His commands joyfully. He will guide you every step, and you will not need to worry about anything in life. Your spirit will be born again with His, and you will live eternally with Him.
