“Gospel” is, if you think about it, kind of a loaded word.
The gospel is such a heavy thing to sling around. Live out the gospel. Explain the gospel. Share the gospel.
Telling me to share the gospel reminds me of 4 Steps to Salvation booklets and street evangelism and the Romans Road and swaying choirs in long robes and that little picture you learned to draw in youth group with you on one side of a canyon and God on the other, and the cross bridging the gap.
And that’s accurate, but that’s not everything. Because the gospel is so much more to me than salvation booklets or cute drawings attempting to illustrate something so mysterious and marvelous that those drawings can’t even come close.
This week, my wonderful church was kind enough to ask me to write for their blog. We’re doing a series on Romans and so today, I’m talking about what the gospel means to me. Click right about here to read the rest, won’t you?
