How would you answer the question “what is the Gospel?” This is the question we have been digging into this last week in our 2nd Phase class. We have been studying evangelism and the call on every believer to be an ambassador of his King, Christ Jesus.
Do we live life overwhelmed and compelled by the beauty of our God? By the good news of how He came to take our brokenness and treason onto Himself, and give us his righteousness and obedience in return? Jesus has called us to follow Him by his grace, living out a new life, united to Him as a member of His body the Church. May we never grow content with our current grasp of the Gospel, or relegate the message of Jesus Christ to merely the turning point in the moment of salvation. Rather, let us steep ourselves every day in this good news, this Gospel!
“He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:13-14 ESV
