Below are some really good blog entries on the gospel and what it means to live as a Christian. You can never get too much of the gospel! Enjoy.
1. Dever: Does Your Church Make The Gospel Visible from Justin Taylor’s blog–”You can lose the gospel by not proclaiming it clearly, but you can also work against the gospel by the life your congregation lives.”
2. What is the Gospel by R.C. Sproul from the Ligonier Ministries blog–”There is no greater message to be heard than that which we call the Gospel. But as important as that is, it is often given to massive distortions or over simplifications. People think they’re preaching the Gospel to you when they tell you, ‘you can have a purpose to your life’, or that ‘you can have meaning to your life’, or that ‘you can have a personal relationship with Jesus.’ All of those things are true, and they’re all important, but they don’t get to the heart of the Gospel.”
3. Seven Habits of Highly Effective Christians from Kevin DeYoung’s blog–”2. They have a theology that compels them to evangelize. They believe in the urgency of the gospel message. They believe that Christ is the only way of salvation. They believe that anyone without Christ is doomed for a literal hell.”
