As a Christian, the message of salvation in Jesus Christ is at the heart of the Church’s identity. Without the Gospel, the reason for which the Church exists would fade away.
Whenever we fail to hold to the Gospel, we will inevitably find ourselves losing what it means to be a disciple of Jesus. One of the key elements of the Gospel is that it serves a steady and unchanging truth that grounds us in life. But especially in difficult times.
In this Holy Week, I would encourage you to look to the Cross, rehearse the message of the Gospel and rejoice in what God has done for you and me. We have been saved. We have been restored. We have been given eternal life. These precious gifts are not for our indulgence. They are reminders of God’s grace and Jesus’s sacrifice.
The Gospel is the most important message we can every carry with us and convey to others. We must do all we cant to get it out and to live it consistently in our lives.
