gave the Gospel to the world.
This is Jesus Christ. He is the Word (Mk 1:1).
While we live our church lives, we assert that we are believers.
What is it we believe? (Mt 5:20)
If you say you believe unconditionally without even knowing,
you cannot become a believer (Mt 23:23).
Our faith is faith in the promise.
What has God promised us? (Jn 14:1-3)
God gave His word and command by His promise,
and gave Jesus Christ
by appearance (Jn 1:17-18).
Jesus is free of David’s descendants (Mt 3:17).
From the time He was loved as God’s Son
until He was hung on the cross, He lived a public life.
In short, this is called the Gospel (Jn 6:53-55).
Since Jesus even shed blood in person to make us believe the Gospel,
His blood and His merit is the Gospel (1 Cor 1:18).
As He promised eternal life to those who believe the Gospel,
what must we do to enter eternal life? (Jn 11:25-26)
The Holy Spirit guaranteed and sealed this Gospel (2 Cor 1:21-22).
○ Jesus personally conveyed the Gospel,
that is, preached about Himself.
○ Since those who believe Jesus are instantly baptized,
the Holy Spirit seals them instantly with His guarantee.
○ If you have nothing to believe, you are only religious.
Religious people labor to practice ethics and good deeds,
but the Gospel gives atonement along with eternal life.
※ Believers do not belong to the world
but belong to God, so they follow His word
and become people of the Holy Spirit, that is, spiritual people.
