But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.
Gospel in a Blog, Sample 2
Here are four different ways to present the gospel in one single sentence:
1. Jesus saves sinners.
2. We had it all; we lost it all; he did it all; we get it all.
3. You are more sinful than you give yourself credit for and more loved—in Christ—than you can comprehend.
4. You are so bad that Jesus had to die for you, yet so loved that Jesus died for you.
