What is the Gospel? What difference does it make in daily life?
The Gospel means "good news." The good news is God provided a way for all of us to be forgiven of our sins. We'll be discussing 1 Corinthians 15:1-6. Because of Christ's death and resurrection, we are secure in being children of the King. God is with us. He hears our prayers. Our responsibility is to give Him the Glory in our daily life, and we will be taken to Heaven if we confess our sins and believe in His Son, Jesus.
