Responding to the Gospel

Responding to the Gospel

Why we need Jesus and how he meets our greatest need

1) The Gospel of Jesus (Romans 1:16-17)

Gospel = The message about Jesus who came as God to bring salvation to all who believe in him

2) The Problem of Sin and God’s solution (Romans 3:10-11 and 23-25)

sin = the wrong we’ve done and the good we haven’t done

justified = made right with God

propitiation = Jesus’ blood paid the price of our sin and satisfied God’s punishment against our sin.

3) The Result of Jesus’ Cross and Resurrection: The Gospel gives peace, grace, joy, and hope (Romans 5:1-2 and 8)

4) We are changed by this Gospel (Romans 6:22-23)

sanctification = a life of devotion, a life that transforms as we more resemble Jesus in our thoughts, actions, and words

5) How to believe in Jesus (Romans 10:9-13)

Heavenly Father, I agree with your word that I have sinned and have gone against you. There’s nothing I can do to earn my way to you, or gain salvation. So today, I repent of my ways and trust in your grace, and believe that you gave Jesus to pay for my sin and give me new and eternal life. I confess him as my Risen Lord and Savior, and I believe that he died for me and rose again. From this day on, help me to grow in the Gospel, and be changed by your grace. Amen.
