Newborn Baby Left for Dead

A newborn baby abandoned by her parents and left for dead was utterly hopeless. But because of the compassion and mercy of a local Mexican man on his way to work, the baby was not only rescued from certain death, the man plans on adopting her into his family as one of his own.

What a picture of the Gospel!

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved…
[Eph. 2:4-5]

In love he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace…
[Eph. 1:5-6]

What Is the Gospel?

What is the gospel? Every Christian needs to be able to succinctly and sufficiently answer this question to anyone—it contains the very keys to eternal life.

The gospel is the good news that God saves sinners who repent and believe in Jesus.

I have this memorized. My two daughters, ages five and six right now, have this memorized. It comes out of our mouths instinctively with almost no effort. But memorizing a canned response is only the first part. You must be able to expound upon its meaning.
