The Gospel Primer #7: Gospel Identity

Who are you? Most of us talk about our stuff, our jobs, our past, or the like to define ourselves. So, what do we mean when we say our identity is found in Christ? Like baptism, we are defined by the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Our gospel identity is a family of missionary servants!

The Gospel Primer #6: Two Lenses

Does the gospel ever seem one-dimensional from your perspective? We have a bad tendency to lean into only one aspect of the gospel. If we focus on the power of the gospel (salvation), we often create a personal story that has no effect outside ourselves. On the other hand, looking only at the purpose of the gospel (restoration) leads to a social gospel that cannot redeem the hearts of humanity. We need to be looking through both lenses of the gospel in order live out God's mission for us!

The Gospel Primer #5: Four Eternal Truths

We don't like to talk about sin, but how are we supposed to handle it? Jesus said that sin comes from the heart; every time, it's the result of unbelief. Even as Christians, there are lies that we believe about God. We only get frustrated when we try to take care of our wrong actions while ignoring the unbelief behind those actions. Four eternal truths of God encompass the areas that we as humans lack faith whenever we turn from His will.

The Gospel Primer #4: Gospel Listening

Have you ever wondered how to get past "How are you?" Listening is hard, but when we pay attention, we can see God's pattern of story popping up all over the place. It's amazing what you find when you get beneath the surface! So, how do we get deep enough in conversation to see and say what matters? Keep loving, keep asking, and keep praying--God will help you in gospel listening!

Amen
