It's all about Jesus.
No one has been more hated and more loved than Jesus. This Jewish carpenter, who never traveled more than a hundred miles from His birthplace, never wrote a book, never raised an army, and was a public figure for less than four years before being crucified by Rome, remains the subject of endless conversations, debates, books, movies and controversies. What, then, makes Jesus so unique?
The gospel changes everything.
The gospel is the good news that God loves us so much that He came to rescue and restore us through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Why do we need rescued? Because of sin. Sin has broken our relationship with God and has distorted our true identity.
Sin is making everything about me. Sin is living life my way, for my fame and my glory instead of living God's way for God's glory. All of us have sinned and need the gospel - we desperately need Jesus to rescue us from the penalty and effects of our sin.
When we repent (change our mind about who is really God in our lives) and by faith believe that Jesus' life, death and resurrection has restored us to a right relationship with God the Father, then this good news begins to change every area of our life back to the way God designed it to be.
