What is the Gospel?

Greg Gilbert on the 9Marks blog has written three posts on the definition of the gospel.

In the first part he raises two questions:

Those two questions are these:

  1. What is the gospel? In other words, what is the message a person must believe to be saved? And
  2. What is the gospel? In other words, what is the whole good news of Christianity?

I would encourage the reading of all three posts:

What is the Gospel? Part 1

What is the Gospel? Part 2

What is the Gospel? Part 3

This would be good reading for anyone involved in helping ministries:  Helping the poor, feeding the homeless, graffiti abatement team, Men’s New Commandment Ministry to Widows…anyone on our External Focus Team.  Good works are an expression of the gospel, and it should be made explicit.

(Rudy, this may be good to hand out and talk about at our next breakfast with the Men’s Ministry?)
