Yes, Christians Need The Gospel

September 29, 2011

At a recent conference I preached on “Why do Christians need the Gospel?”  My sermon was based on 1 John 1:8- 2:2, a passage which gives us a framework for Gospel-centred living. My outline was:

1. Don’t be deceived, confess your sins (1:8-10)

  • the claim we must avoid (8,10)
  • the confessionwe must adopt (9)

2. Don’t be discouraged, consider Jesus (2:1-2)

  • What is Jesus doing now?
  • How can Jesus plead my case and win?

Practical suggestions:

  • Talk about the gospel
  • Meditate on the gospel
  • See the gospel
  • Share the gospel

Listen to the whole sermon.


  1. […] Yes, Christians Need The Gospel (unashamedworkman.wordpress.com) […]

  2. Christians are on the front lines and need to hear the gospel to realize that they have the power through Jesus Christ and to tell the lost about the love and most of all salvation that gives them freedom from the bonds of Satan. God Bless All.
