The Heart of the Gospel
What does it mean to be a Christian? What is the message of the Gospel? What is the heart of the Christian message? Sometimes people stumble and have no idea whatsoever, but I believe the book of Romans can clear the fog. When you strip everything back, culture, politics, entertainment, no book better describes what it means to be a follower of Christ. The Book of Romans is a discovery of the heart of the Christian message, the Good News, the Gospel. It is Christianity 101, 4 chapters that lay bare the very foundation of our faith.
This message allows us to understand the very base purpose and content that makes up the of the book of Romans. The first section, described as, The Heart of the Gospel, chapters 1 – 4 provides for us the very fundamental truths of the Gospel. Dr. Neufeld suggests, “This is the kernel. This is the nub. This is the central point of what it is that makes a person a Christian.” This message introduces a study of chapters 1 – 4, critical to the walk of faith of every follower of Christ.
