The gospel was never designed to bring eternal life to anyone. It means nothing to a dead sinner, but is good news and glad tidings to the born again child of God. Therefore, it should be preached, to feed the souls of God’s children, to comfort, edify and instruct them. There is no greater message to a child of God, that feels to be poor, needy and unworthy of God’s mercy and grace, than to hear that Jesus paid the sin debt, saved him from his sins and now is preserved in Christ. (Isaiah 40:1-9, 52:7, Ephesians 4:11-12, II Timothy 1:9-10, John 21:15-17, Acts 20:28, I Peter 5;1-3).
