This is What The Gospel Does

The Gospel should crush our insecurities, breathe life into our passions, and turn our hearts to those in need.

The Gospel should transform us into peacemakers who recklessly love people-all kinds of people. 

The Gospel should turn us into good citizens who make our cities and neighborhoods better places to live.

The Gospel should remind us that this life is vanishing.

The Gospel should make us lay down our own rights for others. 

The Gospel should drench us with humility.

The Gospel should drive us deeper in Christ every day. 

The Gospel should help us put our anger in the right place. 

If these things are not happening, there might be a problem with our Gospel.
