The Gospel and the Extent of Its Grace

1. Because the covenant of works was broken by sin and was unable to confer life, God was pleased to proclaim the promise of Christ, the seed of the woman, as the means of calling the elect and producing in them faith and repentance.1  In this promise the gospel in its substance was revealed and made effectual for the conversion and salvation of sinners.2

1Genesis 3:15. 2Revelation 13:8.

2. This promise of Christ and of salvation through him is revealed in the Word of God alone.3  The works of creation and providence, when assisted only by the light of nature, do not reveal Christ or grace through him, even in a general or obscure way.4  Much less are those without the revelation of him in the promise or gospel enabled to attain saving faith or repentance by seeing these works of God.5

3Romans 1:17. 4Romans 10:14,15,17. 5Proverbs 29:18; Isaiah 25:7; Isaiah 60:2, 3.

3. The gospel has been revealed to sinners in various times and in different places, along with the promises and precepts describing the obedience it requires. The particular nations and individuals who are granted this revelation are chosen solely according to the sovereign will and good pleasure of God.6  This choice does not depend on any promise to those who demonstrate good stewardship of their natural abilities based on common light received apart from the gospel. No one has ever done this nor can anyone do so.7   Therefore, in every age the preaching of the gospel to individuals and nations has been granted in widely varying degrees of expansion and contraction, according to the counsel of the will of God.

6Psalms 147:20; Acts 16:7. 7Romans 1:18–32.

4. The gospel is the only outward means of revealing Christ and saving grace, and it is abundantly sufficient for that purpose. Yet to be born again, brought to life or regenerated, those who are dead in trespasses also must have an effectual, irresistible work of the Holy Spirit in every part of their souls to produce in them a new spiritual life.8  Without this no other means will bring about their conversion to God.9

8Psalms 110:3; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Ephesians 1:19, 20. 9John 6:44; 2 Corinthians 4:4, 6.

Mark 16:15 (NASB) 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

Gospel “Meaning”

(Gk. euangelion) (1:1, 14; 16:15; Matt. 4:23; Rom. 1:1; 1 Pet. 4:17) Strong’s #2098

This Greek word was originally used to describe the “good news” of military victory brought from a messenger to his commander. It then came to mean simply a “good message.” In the NT it means the Good News of salvation: Jesus Christ came to earth to conquer the sin and evil which plague this world by living a sinless life and sacrificially offering Himself on the Cross. In obedience to Christ’s command (16:15), the apostles continued to share this Good News with the rest of the world because it is Christ’s life-giving message to a world that is dying in its sins. Mark 16:15
