You don’t make a decision for Jesus
You don’t ask Jesus into your life
You don’t feel touched
You don’t confess that Jesus is Lord
You don’t walk an isle
You don’t walk forward and shake the preacher’s hand
You don’t repeat a prayer
You agree with God about your sins and receive Christ into your heart by faith.
What is the Gospel?
I Corinthians 15:1-8
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time.
Here are two verses that refer to the Gospel...
“In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ….” II Thessalonians 1:8
“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” I Peter 4:17
What does it mean to obey the gospel?
It simply means to believe it.
