Gospel Growth 4

We're continuing our study on how change happens in the Christian life. Most Christians understand that we are saved by grace through faith, but then continue to live as if growth happens by a ton of hard work and discipline. As a result, Christianity moves very quickly from a joyful response to God's saving work to a drudgery of discipline, and eventual to what feels like spiritual death. This week we look at the connection between gospel declarations - what God has done - and gospel obligations - how we ought to respond. If we miss the New Testament flow - from declaration to obligation - we'll miss the very heart of Christianity!
