Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord and you will be saved.

The Gospel

From Corinthians 15 we learn that Christ died and rose from the dead. Paul being very humble tells us that he was not worthy to be called a follower of Christ because he used to persecute the church. But, for Him and for us we learn it is by the grace of God that we have become saved. The Gospel is the good news that Christ the Risen Lord and Savior has given us new life in Him. It tells us that “..flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God” but what does that mean? It means that in and of ourself we can do nothing to earn Heaven. Our flesh or sinful nature has separated us from God. We cannot inherit the Kingdom of God unless Christ be our Lord and Savior. If, we could have made it to Heaven without Christ then the whole point of Christ dying is minimized, but God died on the cross; Christ God in Flesh because their was no other way for our sins to be forgiven. Finally, the best part is the Bible teaches us to repent and believe. No, repentance doesn’t mean to be perfect but it does mean to admit to God we are flawed and we need a relationship with Him and we accept what He did 2,000 years ago on the cross. May, we all trust and follow Him daily. Amen
