Concerning the Gospel
After the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished His judicial redemption and initiated His organic salvation through His death on the cross and His resurrection, He charged His disciples (including we who have believed into Him) to preach the gospel. (Matthew 28:19, Mark 16:15) This is a solemn charge to every believer.
The early Christians took this charge seriously, as Acts 5:42 says that "...they did not cease teaching and announcing the gospel of Jesus as the Christ." The Apostle Paul did also: "To me, less than the least of all saints, was this grace given to announce to the nations the unsearchable riches of Christ as the gospel" (Ephesians 3:8).
The gospel that we preach is that by the vicarious death of Jesus Christ on the cross He has cleansed all those who come to Him through faith from every sin, and has fulfilled all the requirements of God's righteousness. Through His resurrection Jesus Christ became the life-giving Spirit to impart the eternal, divine life of God into everyone who believes into Him, thus making us God's sons, both in life and nature.

Nothing on earth is a more joyful occasion than a wedding. Everyone celebrates and no one is unhappy--it is the beginning of a new life, it is the continuation of human existence. And so it was at the wedding in Cana of Galilee to which Jesus of Nazareth was invited. They were enjoying the wine; the future looked bright; everyone was excited and full of joy. It seemed as though it would never end, when all of a sudden--the wine ran out! (John 2:1-3) This gospel tract points out the spiritual significance of all that happened at that wedding feast.
Pascal was one of the keenest intellects of the 17th century and also was a fervent believer in Jesus Christ. Pascal's writings on this subject are not theoretical and abstract, but experiential and concrete. They spring from his own intimate knowledge of God and the joy and peace that He is. This gospel tract preaches the Good News from a most thoughtful perspective.
Science and faith are usually viewed as incompatible. For centuries science has been on the ascendancy, seemingly faith has been on the retreat. As the boundaries of man's knowledge have extended, there has been less reliance upon God to explain the unknown. Yet surprisingly, recent scientific discoveries actually point to the existence of a Creator.
