Straddling the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Our World

May 29, 2016

Summary

Scripture teaches us the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is to this Gospel that our lives are to ascribe, not the gospel of the world, the gospel of our country, nor the gospel of our life. It is the gospel that impacts how we relate to our world while we have one foot in God’s kingdom and one foot in the world. Our impetus is to please God

When we as individuals and church organizations live into the Gospel of Jesus christ, we are sought out because it leads to peace, leads to justice, and provides a more wholistic way of relating.

Jesus is the center of our faith. Community is the center of our lives. Reconciliation is the center of our work.
