15 Amazing Quotes about the Gospel

I have been compiling a list of great quotes about the gospel the last several weeks. Here are top 15 gospel quotes that I have found that I pray will cause you to worship King Jesus more this day.


1. “The heart of the gospel is redemption, and the essence of redemption is the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ.” ― C.H. Spurgeon
2. “The gospel is not a doctrine of the tongue, but of life. It cannot be grasped by reason and memory only, but it is fully understood when it possesses the whole soul and penetrates to the inner recesses of the heart.” ― John Calvin

3. “There is nothing attractive about the gospel to the natural man; the only man who finds the gospel attractive is the man who is convicted of sin.” ― Oswald Chambers

4. “Never be content with your current grasp of the gospel. The gospel is the life-permeating, world-altering, universe-changing truth. It has more facets than a diamond. It’s depths man will never exhaust.” ― C.J. Mahaney
5. “If the gospel is old news to you, it will be dull news to everyone else.” ― Kevin DeYoung
6. “It is not great faith but true faith that saves. And the salvation lies not in the faith but in the Christ in whom faith trusts.” ― C.H. Spurgeon


7. “The gospel of Jesus Christ is an offense to both religion and irreligion. It can’t be co-opted by either moralism or relativism.” ― Timothy J. Keller

8. “The best news of the Christian gospel is that the supremely glorious Creator of the universe has acted in Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection to remove every obstacle between us and himself so that we may find everlasting joy in seeing and savoring his infinite beauty.” ―John Piper
9. “God has made relationships His chosen delivery system for the gospel of hope.” ― Ed Stetzer
10. “The Gospel shows people their wounds and bestows on them love. It shows them their bondage and supplies the hammer to knock away their chains. It shows them their nakedness and provides them the garments of purity. It shows them their poverty and pours into their lives the wealth of heaven. It shows them their sins and points them to the Savior.” ― Billy Graham
11. “If you believe what you like in the gospel, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself.” ― Augustine


12. “The man who does not glory in the gospel can surely know little of the plague of sin that is within him. ― J.C. Ryle

13. “We want to be saved from our misery, but not from our sin. We want to sin without misery, just as the prodigal son wanted inheritance without the father. The foremost spiritual law of the physical universe is that this hope can never be realized. Sin always accompanies misery. There is no victimless crime, and all creation is subject to decay because of humanity’s rebellion from God.” ― R.C. Sproul
14. “Outside of the cross of Jesus Christ, there is no hope in this world. That cross and resurrection at the core of the Gospel is the only hope for humanity. Wherever you go, ask God for wisdom on how to get that Gospel in, even in the toughest situations of life.” ― Ravi Zacharias
15. “The gospel is not ‘God loves us,’ but ‘God loves us at the cost of his Son.’” ― Derek Thomas
