In what methods is the gospel distinctive?
That query opens part 4 of The Gospel Coalition’s Theological Imaginative and prescient for Ministry. Should you’re going to name your self The Gospel Coalition, you’d higher clarify why the gospel is such an enormous deal.
And I believe that’s what this assertion does. In comparison with 10 years in the past, I hear extra discuss in regards to the gospel, and maybe that’s proof of this assertion sinking in. However whether or not it’s widespread or cliché in one other 10 years to talk of gospel-centered ministry, that’s nonetheless what TGC will do, as a result of that’s the entire level of our work. Let me quote from part 4, since there isn’t a higher privilege or motivation that this: “The gospel moves people to holiness and service out of grateful joy for grace, and out of love of the glory of God for who he is in himself.”
I’m joined on The Gospel Coalition Podcast by Phil Ryken, president of Wheaton Faculty and a TGC Council member, to speak extra in regards to the gospel and what a distinction it makes in our particular person lives and in our church buildings. We’ll discuss theology and software; plus I’ll discover out if we’re being too onerous on faith on this “spiritual but not religious” period.
