Can you summarize the Gospel in 10 words or less?

My dear friend Carmen posted a blog entry with the same title as above. She had read a blog that asked this very question. The blog host challenged his readers saying, "The thinking behind the post is essentially this: If you can’t summarize what you believe in ten words, do you truly understand what you believe?"

You can check out the original blog and all of the comments here. I am posting this as well because it has made me think about how I would summarize the gospel if asked. I think that this would be my summary- if I had to do it in 10 words.

Slave to sin. Christ conquered death. Grace and Life given.
