The "gospel" is the English word we use to translate the Greek word for "Good News." The gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ is the story of what Jesus did to "save" us. Yes, we need to be saved from the wrath of God. Because God is a holy God, His holy standard cannot be manipulated. God cannot associate with sin. That means all it takes is one sin on our part to be separated in relation to a holy, pure and perfect God. But God, who is rich in mercy and loves us beyond measure, provided a way for us to escape His wrath. That's why Jesus went to the cross. He took the punishment for us. In other words, God did not just brush our sins under the carpet, a sacrifice had to be made. It's either us or Jesus. Therefore, by placing your faith in Jesus and believing that He died as the sacrificial lamb for your sins you will be forgiven once for all, reconciling the broken relationship between you and God. That is why the story of Jesus Christ IS "good news." because through Jesus we are saved from the coming wrath, securing our place in heaven. Apart from Jesus there is no good news rather judgement and condemnation. Your choice friends... choose Jesus or choose judgement. Not my judgement but God's judgment.
