The Gospel Message

“The gospel message–you have been cleansed from sin–is the pinnacle of God’s loving work in the world, and just as it is this work that saves us, it is also this work that transforms and sustains us.  The gospel is the message that must remain paramount throughout all our life.  It must not be relegated to yesterday’s news or tucked away with our faded photos of our first steps in Christ.  Jesus’ death cleanses us from sin, but it also guarantees our ultimate transformation into his image.  This transformation occurs, Paul writes, while we gaze upon him, think about him, and muse on him as he has revealed himself to us in the gospel. ‘And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another'(2 Cor. 3:18).  Behold his glory in the gospel and be transformed.”

    Elyse is so wonderful. What a great reminder that the Gospel is not only for those who are not yet saved from sin’s guilt and power.
