“God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees and in the flowers and clouds and stars.” ~Martin Luther
The quote above tells of how we can see the work of God all around us. Mark 16:15 says, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” We are clearly called to share the “Gospel” with unbelievers, but what is the Gospel? It can be summed up in two words: Jesus Christ. Whenever we evangelize, these two words should be the words we speak the most. Without them, there is no good news. The Gospel starts with the creation of the world and the Fall. Sin entered the world, but salvation was promised one day through a descendent of Adam. This Savior was Jesus Christ who was incarnated in the flesh, was crucified, and rose again on the third day to pay the penalty for man’s sin. The Gospel, Jesus Christ, is the cornerstone of our lives and He should permeate our speech, lifestyle, dress, actions, thoughts, and ideals. Remember the Gospel. Live the Gospel!
Your brother in Christ,
“Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary, use words.” ~St. Francis of Assisi
