English Sermon (06/06/21) – Gospel (1Corinthians 15:1-4, Mark 1:15-17)
The Gospel is the backbone and the core of our Christian faith. Starting from Genesis, God foreshadowed the one-time sacrifice that Jesus would eventually make to cover our sin and shame. The Gospel contains four essential truth:
1. The kingdom is already at hand on earth
2. Christ is the Son of God who came on to this earth
3. Christ died for our sin on the cross and was buried
4. Christ was resurrected on the third day.
But the Gospel is not complete without calling people to respond to the Gospel. To receive the gospel, one must repent of sins, believe in the truth of the Gospel, and commit to following Jesus Christ as Lord.
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we have been given a new identity in Christ and we are also called to be the ambassadors to share the Gospel and multiply disciples.
