This is the Gospel of the Kingdom

This is the Gospel of the Kingdom !
Matthew 24:14 – ‘And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come’.
The “gospel of the kingdom” that Jesus referred to and what much of “Christianity” preaches today are not the same thing. The word “gospel” means good news or glad tidings. While it is certainly true that God hates sin and all sin will be judged, that is not the good news of the kingdom. Yet most of religious preaching centers on what we do or should do and not on what Jesus has already done for us. The gospel that Jesus referred to is that Jesus has purchased a way to the Father through His own death and resurrection and it is ours if we will just believe (Rom. 10:1-13).
Many people who have heard the “bad news” of religion are “working their fingers to the bone” to earn God’s favor. They have not only made Jesus their Savior, but they have had the burden of salvation put on their own backs. That is not the gospel of the kingdom.
