Gospel Basics

It’s no mistake or coincidence that you’ve found yourself here. I’m not going to get into a long theological discussion on the Sovereignty of God, but He meant for you to be here.

God loves you! He loves you so much that He sent his only Son, Jesus Christ, to live a sinless human life and suffer a cruel death on a cross as payment for our sins, which keep us separated from a Holy God. Yes, we’re “only human”, but that means we do wrong according to God’s standards. Nothing we could ever do would be acceptable as payment… Kind of like trying to pay your hydro bill with Monopoly money. Jesus paid it. We could never pay Him back, and He doesn’t want us to. He just wants us to love Him.

But first- you have to accept that payment He made. One payment, for all your sin, once. And He paid it to your account. You have to believe that Jesus Christ, fully God & fully man, perfectly sinless, made that payment, and that to do it, He shed His own blood. For you. And you need to confess and repent of your sins. That means you tell Him you are sorry for breaking God’s Laws, that is, sinning, and that you want to turn away from your sins. You ask Him to come into your life. To be your Saviour.

And then you tell others.
