The Gospel is the good news message that God sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins. He was raised to life, victorious over the power of death. In choosing to live for Him, we can be free from the power of sin and experience abundant life today and eternal life in Heaven. 1 Corinthians 15: 1-2
The Gospel Is….
I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received 1 Corinthians 15:1
The Gospel is not something we invented and it is not something we discovered
The Gospel is the gift of God for us
Which you received and on which you have taken your stand 1 Corinthians 15:1
The Gospel is your foundation and your solid rock
By this gospel you are saved 1 Corinthians 15:2
Not a past tense “you were saved” but a present tense…”you are being saved”
1 Corinthians 15: 3-8 Our series “The Pure Gospel”
The Life of Jesus
The Death of Jesus
The Resurrection of Jesus
1 Corinthians 15:12-19
Why is resurrection critical?
What does it mean to us today?
Truth is stronger than lies
The Truth of God is stronger than any lie of the enemy
Good is stronger than evil
The resurrection proved that evil had lost and that God is greater
Love is stronger than hate
When Jesus rose again, He proved that the perfect love of Jesus
Life is stronger than death
1. This life is not all there is
2. In this life, freedom is possible
If there is no resurrection, there is no…
Freedom from Sin
Two Questions that the Gospel asks of us:
Will you believe in that which you don’t fully understand?
Does your daily life reflect victory over sin?
