Bad News in 2015 by Don Salmon
January 2, 2015

What is The Gospel?

The dictionary refers to The Gospel as...

1. The teaching or revelation of Christ.
synonyms: Christian teaching, Christian doctrine, Christ's teaching; the Word of God, The Good News.

2. A thing that is absolutely true.

The Good News?  The funny thing is The Gospel always has to start with The Bad News. We've all sinned and fallen short of The Glory of God. We're going to Hell eternally. That's bad news.

Man has to discover a need for Atonement, for Repentance, for cleansing from sin. God loved the world so much that He sent His Son, to save us from Sin.  That's the Good News.

And that's why it's so difficult to spread The Gospel these days. For the last 50 years, society has been teaching us that we're all OK. We're all unique. Be tolerant and accept everyone and everything.

Lord Byron wrote The beginning of atonement is the sense of it's necessity. Western Civilization doesn't sense it needs atonement any longer because tolerance is such a prevalent worldview.

The only way we're going to change that is with prayer. With revival. Only the Holy Spirit can bring conviction of sin. As we move in to 2015, we need to focus on those around us who need Truth. Who need The Gospel. Won't you join me in praying for revival and that God would send His Holy Spirit with conviction and Saving Power in 2015?
