The Gospel Is for Christians: 2nd Edition
The message that saves is the message that sanctifies. The good news about Jesus is relevant, not just for conversion. The gospel is for the Christian life. Disciples of Jesus must hold firmly to this saving message, knowing that the power of God grows and transforms them through it. There are no spiritual short-cuts to following Christ. A disciple needs to behold the glory and beauty of God’s love in Christ, and that means the gospel is indispensable for the Christian life.
