1 Corinthians 15:1-4

“Everything in Scripture is either __ for the gospel, __ of the gospel, or __ in the gospel.” – Dave Harvey | Pastor, Four Oaks Community Church

“To grow in your passion for what Jesus has done, increase your __ of what He has done. Never be content with your current grasp of the gospel. The gospel is a life-permeating, world-altering, and universe-changing truth. It has more facets than a diamond. Its depths man will never exhaust.”
– C. J. Mahaney, The Cross-Centered Life: Keeping the Gospel the Main Thing


Big Truth: You never __ the gospel; you grow __ the gospel.


The essence of the gospel:

  • Humanity was created for a relationship with God.
  • Our __ separated us from that relationship.
  • There is nothing that we can do to reconcile this relationship on our own.
  • Jesus lived a perfect life and __ on the cross to pay the penalty of our sin.
  • Jesus rose from the dead that we might have life.
  • Jesus offers __ life (reconciled relationship) to those who will repent of their sin by placing faith in Him.


The gospel of grace teaches that we are far __ than we thought, but Jesus is far __ than we imagined.


Grace is God’s unmerited favor in which He does __ us and through us and __ us what we could not do for ourselves.
