The word “Gospel” in the Greek means”good news.” “In classical literature the word designated the reward given for good tidings. It also indicated the message itself, originally the announcement of victory, but later applied to other messages bringing joy. That it is found more than 75 times in the NT indicates a distinctly Christian connotation. The gospel is the good news that God in Jesus Christ has fulfilled his promises to Israel, and that a way of salvation has been opened to all.” (New Bible Dictionary)
What good news have you heard lately and how motivated were you to share it with others? Do you feel the same about the good news of salvation found in Christ? Why or why not?
Rom 1:16 “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.” NIV84
