A bigger Gospel

I’m one of those people who had a profound sense of being a messed-up sinner, so when people told me that if I accepted Christ, I’d be forgiven, I was all in. I’m personally so grateful that Jesus died for my sins, that God forgives me, and that, therefore, I will live eternally with God. 

But the good news, the gospel, the biblical story is way more than that. 

Not everyone is a mess like I was. Some folks have lived pretty decent lives. Why do they need Christ?

Not everyone is a mess, but the world sure is. Look around at the poverty, racism, and wars.

The gospel is God’s project of putting the world right and inviting us to be a part of that. No matter who you are, you can get behind that.
