The Gospel Is Not…

Timely, relevant, profound and brilliantly simple words from one of my favorite weblogs. If you have not bookmarked The Blazing Center please do so now.

We get pretty easily fired up about things, don’t we? In the midst of our fury, it’s so easy to fumble the beauty and simplicity of the gospel. The gospel isn’t:

  • Jesus + Homeschooling
  • Jesus + Social Justice
  • Jesus + Regular Devotional Times
  • Jesus + Republicans / Democrats
  • Jesus + My Style of Worship
  • Jesus + ESV Study Bible
  • Jesus + Calvinism
  • Jesus + Going Green
  • Jesus + Faith and Repentance

What is the gospel?

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures… (1 Cor 15:3-4)

Isn’t it beautiful?
