Beloved of Christ Jesus, speaking of the Gospel also speaks of the greatness of God’s love for the world so that He gives His Son Jesus Christ, “…that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16). So the essence of the gospel is the message of the cross of Christ. This is the message that should not be ruled out by the servant of the Lord who serve. The message of the cross of Christ must always take precedence. Undeniably the message of the gospel is simple, but it contains a powerful power that the Lord Jesus came into this world and died on the cross to atone for the sins of mankind. Whoever believes in Him will be saved, because “… In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” (Ephesians 1:7). Unfortunately, the news of the cross of Christ is receiving a bad response from people and is considered a foolish thing. Not only did they disbelieve the Gospel but they also despise it. Nonetheless, the word of the cross of Christ for us believers is a gift that is incomparable.
Brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, there is no other news in this world that can give a definite assurance of eternal salvation nor there is any news by which we are reconciled to God and appointed as His children besides the news of the cross of Christ. May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you all. Amen!
