What is the Gospel?

Posted on

In today's Gospel reading from Mark 1, we read about Jesus going out into the desert for forty days before beginning His public ministry. He opens His public ministry with these words:

"This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel."

The reflection today isn't so much a reflection, but an assignment. I want you to answer this question: What is the gospel? If you received ashes on Ash Wednesday, the minister may have echoed the words of Jesus - "Turn away from your sins and be faithful to the gospel." It begs the question: What is the gospel? Think about that today.

Father, may we be ever more aware of the gospel, and how we're being faithful to it - or not - in our lives. Amen.
