"He will punish those who do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus."
(II Thessalonians 1:8)
What is the Gospel?
- Death, Burial and Resurrection of Jesus Christ
(I Corinthians 15)
"Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word about Christ."
"Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. Whoever disowns me before the others, I will disown before my Father in heaven."
"I tell you, No! But unless you repent, you too will all perish."
"Peter replied, repent and be baptized, everyone of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
"The people asked what should we do?" This was in response to Peter's sermon, He answered them in Acts 2:38, quoted above.
"Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about 3,000 were added to their number that day."
"And this water symbolizes baptism, that now saves you also-not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus."
(I Peter 3:21)
"If we claim to have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sins."
(I John 1:6-7)
