What is the Gospel?

The Bible teaches that, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23), and that “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23).  This is the Law of God, which convicts everyone, no one excluded, of sin (Romans 3:10, 20).  But the Good News, the Gospel, is this, that “the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23, 1 John 2:1-2).  Jesus’ death on the cross means forgiveness of sins before God, peace with God, and eternal life, and not because of what one does or how one lives (Ephesians 2:8-9).  This is the Gospel.
