A Summary

Filed under: Uncategorized — by ginrich @ 7:42 pm

It is important for us to know the Gospel of Christ in summary.  Here are some of the summary verses.  All are from the New International Version.

John 1:1-5 ​1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.3 All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created.4 Life was in Him, and that life was the light of men.5 That light shines in the darkness, yet the darkness did not overcome it.

John 3:16-18 16 “For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 Anyone who believes in Him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the One and Only Son of God.

Mark 16:6 6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.

1 John 5:11 11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

We need to commit something like this example so we can quickly summarize the Gospel to those who don’t know it.  Hopefully we can then lead them in the prayer of acceptance, commitment, forgiveness and salvation so they will also enjoy an intimate, personal relationship with God the Father though His Son Jesus.
