Gospel Essay

325 words - 2 pages

The Christian gospel is defined as good news from the translation of “Greek euangelion: g d, good + spel, news” in the American Heritage Dictionary.

A Christian should know what they believe and have evidence to back their beliefs. They should have patience in presenting the facts behind their beliefs. Their life should exemplify Christian values; this example of faith in life everlasting through Jesus Christ speaks volumes. Choosing the right time to present the good news of the gospel is key to having someone listen to the message of salvation.
