The Gospel of Jesus
The Gospel is Christ dwelling inside us by faith ALONE and the Preaching of The Gospel is making known to others of the possibility of Christ dwelling inside them! Jesus ALONE saves, you believe—that’s it!! 1Thessalonians 5:23-24,2Corinthians 3:18.
Colossians 1:27, Romans 1:16-17,8:3-4,11,10:9, John 14:15-18, 1John 4:8,16,
God’s Love Is Other Centered and Extravagant
God himself is love. 1John 4:8,16, Hosea 11:1-2. He designed everything to function in harmony with His law of love which is all things freely giving to others. The law of love is the law of giving —- the law of life. Love always involves doing what is good regardless of how one feels. Doing what is in the best interest of another, love is selfless. When we love we live. When we stop loving, we die. It is this other centered love that God wants us to comprehend, Ephesians 3:18-19, Ephesians 5:25, 2Thessalonians 3:5.
John 3:16, 1Corinthians 13:5, 1John 4:11-12, Isaiah 43:1, Isaiah 49:15-16, Psalm 36:5, Psalm 37:4, Psalm 103:1-14, Isaiah 53:4-7,Isaiah 61:1-3
Connection In Relationship Is Our Prime Reality
Our connection with relationship is prime reality and experience for all of us.
On the other hand, separation is the most horrific experience of reality that a human will ever encounter.
Jesus cried out My God My God why have you forsaken me?
Paul states the remedy for separation in Romans 8:38-39. Jesus says that “knowing me intimately is essential in order to have eternal life”,John 17:3.
God’s Love Heals Separation While Reconciling Us To Himself.
The one thing above all others that Jesus desires us to know is that The Father has loved us even as He loved Him.
Knowing Jesus intimately comes only through the daily presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Romans 8:9-11,14, 2Corinthians 3:18,4:16,Ephesians 5:18.
John 17:26, Romans 8:38-39, Jeremiah 31:3, 1John 4:8,, Hosea 11:1-2, Psalm 94:18, 2Corinthians 5:14, 1John 4:10, 2Corinthians 5:14-21, Galatians 5:22-23.
Reconciliation Is Our Final Message Of Hope To The World.
Revelation 14:6-12, 2Corinthians 5:14-20.
Jesus Our Great Heavenly Physician, Will Perfectly Heal, Restore And Save Us!!
This Is The Gospel!! Praise God!!!!
