The Gospel MUST be Central!

I am learning more and more that the gospel must be central in everything we do.  We must never move past it.  We must never think there’s “something more.”  There is nothing else.  It is because of the gospel that we enjoy nothing but mercy from God when we should be burning in everlasting torment.  Over my next several posts, I want to share quotes, videos, song lyrics, or simply my own reflections, which God has used to remind me to keep my eyes firmly fixed on Christ.  I watched the video below and just had to post it.  It’s about 6 1/2 minutes long.  It’s from a sermon by John Piper.

2 Corinthians 5:21 – For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

About Joe Eaton

I praise God that my standing before Him has nothing to do with who I am or what I've done; it is found solely in the perfect life that Christ lived in my place, and His which atoned for my sin. "For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that IN HIM we might become the righteousness of God"..."There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."
