“The gospel, this ‘good news’, is more than just good vibes.
This message has specific content. It can and must be defined, and from the Bible alone.
Every generation must pick up their Bibles and rediscover the gospel afresh for themselves and rearticulate the ancient message in their own words for their own times.”~ Ray Ortlund
“Let’s not automatically assume that our churches are faithful to the gospel.
Let’s examine whether they really are. After all, ‘Every institution tends to produce its opposite.’
A church with the truth of the gospel in its theology can produce the opposite of the gospel in its practice.”~ Ray Ortlund
“Our Father is not accusatory by nature.
If He were, He wouldn’t have sent His only Son to die on a cross to redeem us, to buy us back.
He would have simply pointed a finger and said, ‘I told you so.’ ”~ Craig Jutila
