The Gospel in a Nutshell
I always enjoy finding short, concise explanations of the Gospel.
The Bible says the wages of sin is death. Jesus Christ went to the cross, died our deserved death for us, and thereby took the penalty for our sin on Himself. If we will accept His death and believe that He died for us, He will free us from the penalty of sin and purify us from the stain of sin.
John F. MacArthur, Hebrews: An Expository Commentary, p. 18.
