Can You Explain the Gospel in 3 Words?

Tweet Share

Today I have a piece being featured by The Gospel Coalition in which I offer my answer to a challenge I recently saw posted on social media about explaining the gospel using only three words.

Here’s an excerpt:

Could you explain the gospel to an unbeliever using only three words?

That was the challenge someone posted a couple of weeks ago on social media. “One can’t explain the whole gospel in only three words,” I mumbled to myself. “That’s why we have a canon of 66 books.” The more I thought about it, though, the more my mind changed, and I became open to taking up the challenge.

I think I could explain the gospel in three words, so long as I would have follow-up time to explain all three words. And those words would be “Lord Jesus Christ.”

We live in a fearful and cowardly time. The crisis we face is not a crisis of clarity but a crisis of courage.
