~ A “Me-Focused” Gospel That Is Real and Effective! ~
There are four “S” words which simplify the basic Gospel of Jesus Christ.
My Soul~Your Soul is a valuable possession.Jesus taught in His parable of the rich fool, “And I will say to my soul, ‘Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years; take your ease; eat, drink, and be merry.’”But God said to him, ‘Fool!This night your soul will be required of you; then whose will those things be which you have provided?’” (Luke 12:19-20).“But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul” (Hebrews 10:39).
My Sins~Awareness of your Sins are a heavy burden.“For there is no difference [in any of us]; for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:22a-23).“And you, being dead in your trespasses” (Colossians 2:13a).
My Savior~Accepting the Messiah, Jesus Christ, as your Savior provides a Great Deliverance.“And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior” (Luke 1:47).“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for in Yah , the Lord, is everlasting strength” (Isaiah 26:3-4).
My Salvation~Your Salvation brings a joyful confession.“Behold, God is my salvation,I will trust and not be afraid; ‘for Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song;He also has become my salvation.’Therefore with joy I will draw water from the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:2-3).
summary:When you are awakened to own the value of the first—Your Soul, you feel the burden of the second—Your Sins, you as a sinner are led to the third—Your Savior, and you soon intimately know and rejoice in the fourth—Your Salvation.
