Sometimes we think the gospel is the message of Scripture that leads to repentance and belief in Christ Jesus. And indeed, that is true. See what the apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4:
Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures
The gospel encompasses so much more than the message of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. The gospel includes His power, grace, righteousness, love, hope, humility, along with His gift of salvation. If we preach this gospel message to ourselves every day, and submit to it, God uses it to help us live a holy life, full of gratitude to Christ for His gift of salvation.
