I remember hearing bits and pieces about Jesus. But the day I heard the whole Gospel, it was as if a blinder was torn from my eyes and a shroud was removed from my heart. I saw the truth of the condition of my soul. I saw the great terrible need of my life, and the sure damnation and destination of my soul. I comprehended in a flash the great love of God the Father and the immense sacrifice of Jesus in my behalf. I heard the True Gospel that leads to a real born-again relationship with God.
The True Gospel
When the true Gospel is preached clear,
The Word of God is drawn near.
God so loved the world He sent His Son,
To pay sin’s price so salvation comes.
If Jesus had not died upon the tree,
There was no other way to be reprieved.
If death’s penalty was not erased,
There would not be an extension of grace.
If the tomb was not emptied and bare,
There would be no Good News to share.
If life’s-promise had not been believed,
Fallen man has not God’s gift of new life received.
When the true-gospel is preached and the heart responds.
The rock-solid truth of Salvation is sure and strong.
Light invades the darkness and suddenly,
The dead-man-walking is able to see.
The true gospel is love laid down to die,
To be your eternal supply.
Jesus is the bridge across the chasm of sin,
He gives you the true gospel as He moves in.
He is the Word that becomes crystal clear;
All is well with the soul that the True Gospel hears.
n whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
