Is the Gospel of Jesus Christ Only For Christians?
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek", Romans 1:16
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is really the good news of Jesus' death, burial and resurrection. We shall focus on his death in this writing. #1) Death of Jesus Christ Why Did Jesus Die? The extent of God's love for man kind is unimaginable. He fathered one Son then sent that only Son to die for for all peoples of the world. What love! Regardless of your religion, beliefs, race, gender and country Jesus died for you. That is settled. Jesus died for every person in the world. Those who believe in him and those who do not, Jews and non Jews. Now to benefit from Jesus' death you must believe that God sent him to die for the world and he is the Son of God. It is that simple. Jesus Christ is Sinless Jesus died because he is the only sinless human being to ever lived on earth. Besides Jesus all persons sinned and fall short of the righteousness of God. Owing to the fact that Jesus' father is not from earth sin was never passed on to Jesus by his parents.
One half of Jesus' Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) was earthly and one half was Heavenly. His father's DNA, is Heavenly, but his mother's DNA was earthy. It is for this reason Jesus only earthly parent was a virgin. No man had deposited sin via his DNA into her. Jesus was never the seed of any man but he was the seed of a woman. Usually, one needs the seeds of both parents to form a child. The Holy Ghost is Jesus' father and sinless.
Jesus was without sin so his blood could redeem man from sin. He is therefore, the ransom for the sin of man kind. He paid the ransom price by dying for us and by his sinless blood remove our sin. Other Reasons For Jesus' Death What could be your attitude if you were in God's place? You send your only Son to die for all and many refuse to believe the Word of your Son. Those who believe in Jesus have everlasting life but those who do not are condemned. They are condemn regardless of who they are. They are condemn because the did not believe in the Word of the Son of God.
