Mark 1:14-15 says, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. ‘The time has come,’ he said. ‘The Kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”

Euangelion in Greek is translated “good news” or “gospel.” It combines two words: angelos, the word for one announcing news, and the prefix eu-, which means “joyful.” Gospel, therefore, means “news that brings joy.” It means history-making, life-shaping news! (Keller, Jesus The King).

Jesus is, first, King, and second, Savior. Recognition and submission to the former allows us to experience the work of the latter. The Gospel isn’t advice. It’s good news that you don’t need to earn your way to God; Jesus has already done that for you. The Gospel isn’t for religious people who believe they have found a way through good living and right beliefs. It isn’t for irreligious people who believe they can create for themselves a connectivity to God which they know in their hearts they’ve lost. Instead, the Gospel is for everyone!
