Everything that we are and everything that we do is through and because of the Person and Work of Jesus Christ.
The Gospel is a word – it is good news – it is a message. The Gospel is Jesus Christ, the Word become flesh that dwelt among us and made God known. The Gospel is the mind blowing news that the Almighty and Eternal God wrote Himself into His own story to rescue us and restore His Creation. Only through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are the redemption of man and the restoration of creation made possible. Through faith in Jesus Christ, by the power of the Gospel, we have been given salvation and brought into the Story of God, adopted as His children, and are invited to participate in His restorative work — all for His Glory.
The Gospel is not the just the entry point to the Christian life. The Gospel IS the Christian life. The Gospel has past, present, and future implications for every believer in every aspect of life. We must live our life in a manner worthy of the Gospel of Christ while it provides the foundation, the formation, and the motivation for our loving obedience to Him.
