Elevator Gospel?

People wants it to be short and quick. Remember the elevator speech? With all the speedy tech which is supposed to make more time for men, yet it seems we are running out of time all the time. As for Salvation through Jesus, we are running out of time indeed! Just like the thief who hung on the cross with Jesus who believes Jesus as Saviour, Jesus responded “Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise” or to the man who has no time for God or salvation? “Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee”

So here goes the elevator Gospel (I really hate to make it so compressed).
Jesus loved, died to redeem us from sin, resurrected on 3rd day, ascended to heaven forever more interceding for us.
Accept, repent, confess and invite Jesus as Lord of our life. Live for Jesus, not for men.

Gospel of Jesus Christ:
1. Man are of sinful nature
2. Depraved and cannot come to God.
3. Jesus came, suffered, died for our sins so we can be reunited with God.
4. Rose again 3rd day and ascended into heavens, witnessed by men a week later.

What should we do?
1. Believe in Jesus.
2. Ask for forgiveness
3. Repent from sins
4. Recieve Jesus as Lord of our life
5. Live for Jesus, not for men.
