What is the Gospel?

Simple question? Well, not really. I came across this post by my brother Neilsen Unger and found it to be really helpful. Here is a sample:

The gospel is that for our sins, Jesus the Christ died, was buried, rose from the dead, ascended to the right hand of God and is now King over His creation. The outgrowth of the gospel is the restoration of His people and creation into God’s Kingdom brought about by the messiah, Jesus the Christ. The nature of the gospel is imperial, meaning, it is the declaration that Jesus the Christ is King over all things. This King Jesus is greater than Caesar Augustus and His kingdom greater than the Roman Empire. The Kingdom of God is greater than the United Kingdom, United States or the United Nations. Those that accept His crucifixion, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension to God’s right hand on behalf of themselves because of their sin must repent, that is turn away, from their sin or wrong doing, and give allegiance to this King Jesus; those that do this, are restored into His kingdom, those that refuse to do this exiled from His kingdom and Himself.
