The gospel is the good news of God’s grace addressing and overcoming the darkness of this world. It is also the great narrative described by the Bible, which includes creation, fall, and redemption. The reversal of the fall from God was expressed by the redemption Jesus accomplished through his life, death, resurrection and ascension. The gospel expresses God’s love for us in spite of our turning away from him and it also expresses how we can be united to God. The Bible tells us that we can “have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand.” For the gospel to apply to our lives each of us simply needs to add faith in the accomplished work of Jesus Christ on the cross.
