This weekend we looked at the “Greater News" of the Gospel (contrasted with all of the other news and information that infiltrates our minds on a daily basis). The Gospel is not just the message we believe in order to gain salvation, it is the basis of our eternal fellowship with God. As such, it is not simply good news to be believed in order to become a Christian, it is the good news to be received and believed every day of our lives.
In the sermon, we began to explore the question of how to live each day in light of the good news of the gospel. The main idea was that we need to preach the gospel to ourselves daily, rather than simply listening to the default thoughts served up to us by the world or by our own minds. Years ago, Jerry Bridges wrote a helpful article called “Gospel Driven Sanctification” that dives deeper into this idea. I trust you will find it encouraging and helpful as you seek to grow as a “preacher” of the gospel who will be called to the task of declaring (and believing) gospel glories every day!
