The Gospel - Key To Change

Tim Keller

The Greek term “gospel” (ev-angelion) distinguished the Christian message from that of other religions. An ‘ev-an- gel’ was news of a great historical event, such as a victory in war or the ascension of a new king, that changed the listeners’ condition and required a response from the listener. What is this news? God has entered the world in Jesus Christ to achieve a salvation that we could not achieve for ourselves.

In this article Tim Keller explains how the gospel is the dynamic for all heart-change, life-change, and social change, examining three principles:

1. The gospel is the good news of gracious acceptance

2. The gospel is the good news of changed lives

3. The gospel is the good news of the new world coming
