We have been back a day from our ski trip and as I think about our time in North Carolina I keep going back to one theme that was shared with us – the gospel of Jesus Christ is a reason for joy.
The Gospel is the power of God unto salvation. The Gospel is what God has prescribed as the doorway to new life in Jesus. The Gospel reminds us of the path that we are to walk. The Gospel is a message that points to a new relationship with, not only God, but with ourselves and those we encounter.
The Gospel has power, but it also provides purpose. The Gospel is a message of hope, but it sends us on a mission of Peace. The Gospel speaks to the joy of salvation from the jaws of death and hell. Yes, the Gospel is Good News, but it is so much more. I thank God for reminding me of the Joy of the Gospel.
