The gospel bears fruit when it is clearly communicated

The Gospel of God bears fruit wherever people hear it and “truly understand God’s grace.” This is as true in our day as it was in the days of the Apostle Paul:

In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world—just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace. (Colossians 1:6b)

The Gospel will always bear the fruit of Faith and Love (Colossians 1:5) whenever it is clearly understood and accepted. Therefore, our job as Christians is to simply communicate the gospel clearly. Sometimes we make our job too difficult by being too critical of the minor details of our evangelical efforts, and take our focus off our central message. We must keep our focus on the central message and trust in the Holy Spirit, not our own genius, to save people through the preaching of the gospel message.

Here is the central message of the gospel:

YOU AND I are sinners who willfully and maliciously hurt eachother and hate God.

GOD LOVE US FIRST even while we still hated Him.

That is why He sent His Son Jesus to sacrifice Himself on the cross for our sins.

Jesus’ perfect sacrifice covers our sins when we Believe in Him and Repent of our sins.

NO ONE CAN SAVE THEMSELVES by their own supposed goodness. We can only be saved when we submit to the Grace of God.

Those who deny themselves and submit to God in Faith will have Eternal Life with God.

Those who live life for themselves at the expense of others will spend eternity in Hell.
