Gospel Non Believer’s only

April 5, 2010 0 comments

Sometimes as believers we act as if the gospel is only for those who have yet to accept it. When we do this we are oversimplifying the gospel. Don’t get me wrong the gospel is simple enough that a child can comprehend it:

Admit you are a sinner in need of a Savior.

Believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again to pay the penalty for your sins.

Call upon Jesus Christ as Lord and you will be saved.

However, the gospel does not stop there. That is the beginning. The gospel should have an impact on every area of our lives. From the time we experience salvation we should never stop experiencing the gospel. It takes shape in multiple contexts. The gospel should change the way we do everything we do. Read the New Testament. Our marriages are pictures of Christ love for the church. Our giving is a demonstration of giving generously and of our best (God giving Jesus). As we work we have one boss as we work as if we were working for the Lord and not for men. In relationships we are commanded to forgive as Jesus Christ forgave us. What if the gospel really applies to every area of our lives? Is it for non believers only?
