We Need the Gospel Every Day
Written by Keith Throop
Those at Immanuel Baptist Church could tell you that I have been preaching consistently for many years that we need the Gospel every day. In fact, some of them may even be tired of hearing me say it.
The Gospel is not something that we outgrow our need for as we move on to the "deeper" issues of the faith. In fact, I would say that growth in the Christian faith means spending the rest of our lives understanding just what the Gospel really means for us. Besides, we certainly need to remember our need for God's grace through Jesus Christ every single day! And this means that we need the Gospel every day.
Anyway, I was very encouraged to find this video of John Piper at GodTube called "6 Minute Gospel," in which he says essentially the same thing... only better than I could say it! I just wish even more pastors would get ahold of this basic idea because, if our people really do need the Gospel every day, then we need to make sure we keep telling them that.
