What is the Gospel and who is it for? Join us as we take a look at the true Gospel and it’s implications for us personally.

The Wrong Gospel Romans 10:1-5

 

The True Gospel: Romans 10:6-13

  1. We proclaim it.
  2. We believe it.

 

The Beautiful Gospel: Romans 10:14-17

  1. Have you ever bought something that was supposed to be a one-size-fits-all and it didn’t fit? What about a brand of clothing that doesn’t fit at all even though it is the same size as another brand of clothing that fit just right? Share your experience with the group.
    • One-size-fits-all rarely works out well when it comes to clothing or anything else in our world. Yet when it comes to faith in Jesus, He is all that any man, woman or child will ever need.
  2. Read Romans 10:1-8. In these verses, Paul is writing about his desire to see the Israelites come to salvation through Jesus. According to Paul, up to this point, what things have the Jews been doing to gain their salvation?
  3. Read Romans 10:9-10. These two verses are part of what we know of as the “Roman Road.” What two things does Paul say we must do in order to be saved? How do these verses give us assurance of our salvation in Jesus? Is there anything that you or someone else may have done in the past or believe now that would exclude them from salvation?
  4. Read Romans 10:11-13. In these verses, we read that “Anyone who believes in Him (Jesus) will never be put to shame.” How does this describe the way in which we can stand before God? According to v. 13, who can be saved?
  5. Read Romans 10:14-17. These verses are talking not only about the Israelites hearing the gospel, but about all men and women. What do these verses tell us is essential if men and women are to respond to the gospel?
  6. Who then is responsible to share the gospel? How does that make you feel? Which personal interactions in your life can you change to include proclamation and not just the performance of “nice” deeds?
  7. What are some things that you can do – what stake will you place in the ground – to express and confirm your salvation in Jesus Christ?
