What is "the gospel?" The gospel is "good news." But there's some bad news...
The bad news is, we are all sinners in the sight of the God who made us. We are born with our backs toward God and our guilt deserves punishment - eternal punishment. And if that wasn't bad enough, there's no escape. There is nothing we can do to make up for our sin. No amount of good deeds or good behavior can earn God's forgiveness. That goes for all of us. All have sinned, all are guilty, every one of us falls short of the glory of God deserves his divine justice. That's bad news.
So if we can't fix ourselves and make ourselves right with God, who can? God alone. Only God can save us. He sent his son Jesus to take on the guilt of sinners and to die in their place so that they may be forgiven and to be united with him. He died, was buried, and rose again on the third day to conquer death and sin for those who have faith in him. That's the gospel. And that's good news.
