The Transforming Message of the Gospel

The theme at our LeadTeam meetings this year is holistic ministry. We are receiving some training on it. But the thing that I most appreciate about these meetings is the focus on the centrality of the Gospel. Each day we are beginning with a focus on the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the essential message about the forgiveness of sin in Jesus. The Gospel of the Kingdom that Jesus was proclaiming throughout Galilee. This is the main thing and I'm happy we're keeping it as the main thing.

yay Gospel! Thanks for the reminder.
"God did not give us His gospel just so we could embrace it and be converted. Actually, He offers it to us every day as a gift that keeps on giving to us everything we need for life and godliness. The wise believer learns this truth early and becomes proficient in extracting available benefits from the gospel each day. We extract these benefits by being absorbed in the gospel, speaking it to ourselves when necessary, and by daring to reckon it true in all we do. "
