The Gospel Is the Remedy To Overcome a Spiritual Death

1st Peter 4:6. For those who are spiritually dead, the Bible is the answer to give them eternal life. The gospel of Jesus Christ is preached specifically for those who are spiritually dead. Jesus came on this Earth to save the lost. The lost being all of mankind who have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. Jesus came on this Earth to redeem fallen man, the spiritually dead, and offer eternal life to those who accept Jesus as their Lord and savior.

In 1st Peter, Peter affirms that the gospel of Jesus Christ is for all of mankind, not just for the saved, but also for the “dead”. 1st Peter 4:6 says, “For for this cause was the gospel preached also to them that are dead, that they might be judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit”. Only through the knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ can we “... live according to God in the spirit.” In this age, the gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s offer of salvation for us to accept or reject. For those who accept Christ, we avoid spiritual death and receive the gift of eternal life.
