Four Things the Gospel is Not

In Mark Dever’s The Gospel & Personal Evangelism he gives us a list of four things that the gospel is not.

  1. The gospel is not simply that we are okay.
  2. The gospel is not simply that God is love.
  3. The gospel is not simply that Jesus wants to be our friend.
  4. The gospel is not that we should live the right way.

In another book of his, The Deliberate Church, he gives us a helpful four step guideline to sharing the gospel.

  1. God– who is God, and what is he like?
  2. Man– what is man, and what has he done?
  3. Christ– who is Jesus, and what did he do?
  4. Response– a call for repentance and belief
