The Gospel *includes* helping people in need

What is the Gospel of Jesus you preach?

Notice the Apostle Paul says, in the passage below, that helping people in need proves obedience to the Gospel (v.13b). That means the Gospel includes helping people in need.

“And when we take your gifts to those who need them, they will break out in thanksgiving to God. So two good things will happen — the needs of the Christians in Jerusalem will be met, and they will joyfully express their thanksgiving to God. You will be glorifying God through your generous gifts. For your generosity to them will prove that you are obedient to the Good News of Christ. And they will pray for you with deep affection because of the wonderful grace of God shown through you.” (2 Corinthians 9:11b-14 NLT)
