The Gospel is Good News, not Good Advice

Passage: Titus 3:3-7

The most important message of the Bible: How can my relationship with God be made right?


What is the difference between “good advice” and “good news”?

  • Good Advice:   Something I need to do
  • Good News:     Something that already happened


Titus 3:3-7

  1. The Problem (Titus 3:3): We're broken & far from God
  2. The Solution (Titus 3:4-6): Jesus came to rescue & heal
  3. The Result (Titus 3:7): We get to become heirs of God

When I confuse the advice with the news, I miss the news, I still have the problem and I can't follow the advice.


Good Advice:          faith + works = salvation ❌

Good News:             faith + Nothing = salvation  ✔️



What is your emotional response to Jesus?

How do you speak with others about Jesus?


My NEXT STEP with God is to…

  • …seriously consider: “Do I think of the gospel as “good news” or “good advice?”
  • …confess to God an unhealthy way I’ve been approaching God.
  • …ask God for an opportunity to share the most important message of the Bible, the good news of the gospel, with someone soon.
  • …continue the conversation by participating in one of the home groups.
