the holy gospel - incarnation, proclamation, demonstration
The Gospel is the announcement that Jesus is Lord.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
John 6:35 - Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."
The Gospel is
deep, rich, and beautiful. It has cosmic implications and is intensely
personal. As Tim Keller says, “you are more sinful and flawed than you ever
dared believe, but more accepted and loved than you ever dared hope” because of
the finished work of Christ on the Cross and His mighty resurrection through
which all things are being made new and we are brought back into relationship
with our Triune God. Through the Sacraments of the Church and the work of the
Holy Spirit, the worshipping community is shaped into the image of Christ and
sent on mission into the the midst of a skeptical culture in need of the Gospel
faithfully embodied, clearly proclaimed, and joyfully demonstrated.
