WHY IS THE GOSPEL SO IMPORTANT?

Why do we need the Gospel,
To be so clearly taught?
Or why is it so important
That we tell it like we ought?

Will we have THE ONLY MESSAGE
For a sin sick weary heart,
Whereby they can find forgiveness,
And receive a brand new start.

No itís not the modern message,
Of prosperity and wealth,
And itís certainly not the promise
That youíll enjoy good health.

It is that youíre a sinner and
That youíre on your way to hell,*
That the wages of your sin is death,**
Thatís what we need to tell.

It is that thereís no work of righteousness
That you and I can do,
But according to His Mercy,
Is the way that Heíll save you.***

It is that while we were yet still sinners,
Christ Jesus Died for all,****
And that He will save whosoever
Upon His Name will call.*****

Thereís a lost and dying world out there,
Headed into a ďChristless eternity,Ē
And we have THE ONLY MESSAGE,
That can truly set them free.

So take the Gospel into your world,
Donít worry if itís not a hit.
Just be faithful in sharing it,
Without changing it one bit.

For God will do the changing
Of that sin sick weary heart,
But you will hear
ďWell done faithful servant,Ē
If you have done your part.


*Romans 3:23 -
For all have sinned, and come short of the Glory Of God;

**Romans 6:23 -
For the wages of sin is death; but the Gift Of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

***Titus 3:5a -
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His Mercy he saved us

****Romans 5:8 -
But God demonstrated His Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

*****Romans 10:13 -
For whosoever shall call upon the Name Of The Lord shall be saved.









If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Samuel, this is a very good one. I like the way you used the Scriptures to qualify your statements. Thomas
