What is the "Gospel"?Wednesday, April 06, 2005
A recent blog by "Jolly Blogger" at http://jollyblogger.typepad.com/jollyblogger/2005/02/what_is_the_gos.html is worth reading in its entirety, including the followup comments. There is much that is good and much that resounds with me. But there seems to be a missing element. He hits on it in a rather punctuated manner, to be sure, but beyond that there is little explanation. Can you tell what the element is?
Read the blog and look for the following truths (or mention of words): justification and substitution. Living the gospel is the daily, moment by moment application of who Christ is and what He has done for us AND what He IS for us. Do you think he brings those truths out enough?
