Christian Gospel: The Good News

Posted by Orrin Woodward on December 16, 2012

Since it’s Sunday morning, and I have a few minutes before heading out to church, I want to share a Gospel message from a Sunday morning service at our Leadership Convention. The Gospel message is the message of hope for mankind. The Christmas season is a reminder to everyone that grace has overcome sin and is saving ruined sinners through Christ’s sacrifice. After studying the Five Laws of Decline all week, I am thankful for God’s grace to save sinners like me. All of us need God’s grace because apart from His grace, we are lost. The LIFE business cannot save anyone; only Jesus Christ can do that. However, the LIFE business can surround you with a community of people who have experienced this grace personally and can model love and encouragement to you as Christ commands us to do. Is LIFE or Team perfect? Of course not. Are we improving? I certainly hope so, but each person must be the judge of that.

Sanctification is a life-long process, and I look at the LIFE business as a great way for me to work on my sanctification and help others with theirs. We are commanded to love God with all our hearts and souls and love others as ourselves. Imagine the revolution in society if 10% of the people truly lived these principles! Furthermore, when mistakes were made, they would sit down in Christian love and work things out to glorify our Creator. Tough assignments, I know, but nothing about sanctification is easy. Justification was a free gift; sanctification is a work in progress. Life is too short to be bitter; let’s get better by renewing our minds and hearts in Christ. If you don’t understand what I am saying, ask one of the leaders on your team. At any rate, I will let the video share the rest. Have a blessed Sunday and Merry Christmas!

Sherry and I have both had Faith restored because the gospel was presented to us having decided to become a part of Team many years ago.It has not only changed our lives, but has changed the lives of hundreds of people within the Musketeer Community. Look for us to get strive to get better and and live a life for Christ.

    great posting Orrin. i like the fact that the LIFE business provides information that is biblically based. the world needs absolute truth!

  6. Thank you Orrin for creating a system and environment for all of us to grow closer to Christ and serve each other.

  7. chris volkmann said

    Thanks for being a leader that puts Jesus Christ first in everything. Where would this world be if we all put Jesus Christ first. Have a merry CHRISTmas.

  8. Cindy Dillon said

    Thanks for being the example for us.

  9. Kristine Militello said

    Very well said! Never have I seen so many strive to follow biblical principles in one setting! It makes for such an excellent atmosphere. Belongings are safe, lost possessions are returned, people say they are sorry, conflicts are resolved, wives are respectful and husbands loving!!! It’s a great environment created in life BECAUSE, as you said 10% are living it and sweeping the others up in a wonderful current and influencing them to follow!!! YES!! I want my city, my state, my country, my world to be the same as our LIFE community!!!!
    And Merry Christmas to you too! Thanks for saying that! May others do the same and forego Happy Holidays 🙂

    thanks for sharing that and merry christmas

    Thank you Orrin, the PC, and the whole TEAM/LIFE community, without whom I would not be on a journey to “know why I believe what I believe.”
    From the Catechism, paragraph 1999:
    The grace of Christ is the gratuitous gift that God makes to us of his own life, infused be the Holy Spirit into our soul to heal it of sin and to sanctify it. It is in us the source of the work of sanctification:

    Therefore if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through
    Christ reconciled us to himself.

  12. Amy Clark said

    Thank you Orrin for being such a servant leader.

  13. Christine Brown said

    Thank you Orrin. In light of recent atrocious acts taken against innocent children and educators in both Connecticut and Chengping,Henan, I needed a reminder.

  14. Orrin it was June of 2001 when at a Team Major I heard Tim Marks talk about his relationship with Christ. I never grew up in a church home, but that one talk was all I needed to start seeking truth and what an amazing journey after that. I’m forever thankful for the Team/LIFE leaders for what they do and the open hearts they have about their relationship with Jesus. But furthermore I’m thankful for His love and His sacrifice. May all we do truly glorify our Lord.

  15. Great talk Orrin, I myself love how this TEAM/LIFE community has strengthened my belief and understanding in Christ. Thanks so much for all you do to lead us to truth.

  16. Richard Kroll Jr. said

    Jesus is probably the most polarizing figure in history. The mere mention of His name evokes strong emotions in many. As we move toward the day many celebrate as His Birthday, I’m glad people will get to watch this video to hear the GOOD NEWS of what Christians believe and why.

    Thank you Orrin for always reminding people of what’s IMPORTANT… first!

  17. Marty Becker said


    I just finished the AGO BOM, ‘Already Comprimised’, and I am shocked that even our top Christian educational institutions in this country are deliberately smearing the infalliable truth of the message. Thank you to you and the rest of the PC for putting together an educational program that gives people the truth by bringing them into a wide gate that will lead them to the narrow gate.

    Thank you Orrin for serving and being a great example to us all!

  19. Robert Daley said

    Thank you Orrin for sharing your conviction about our Lord

  20. Thank you for this amazing message! More importantly thank you for keeping the main thing the main thing


  21. Ken McVicker said

    So blessed to be part of an organization that values the eternal over the temporal.

  22. Maura Galliani said

    Amen, Orrin — you give a great sermon! Showing the Truth, providing biblically-based information, and being a Christ-based community are the most important reasons I joined. I sincerely believe that God led me to Team LIFE, and my success will only be through Him! God bless you and your family …. Merry Christmas! 🙂

  23. Orrin, I truly love that in being part of the LIFE business one is truly entering into the life-long process of sanctification. Romans 12:2 says we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. The transformation process doesn’t happen except by the right information. It must be information that is true, noble, just, pure, lovely, and of good report (Philippians 4:8). I am so thankful that LIFE is all of the above. Thank you for your obedience to follow that which God has put in your heart to fulfill. Many lives are changed because of that.

  24. Wayne MacNamara said

    Thanks Orrin , we appreciate you so much for this message you shared.
    luv ya

  25. J & P Harteis said

    Thanks, Orrin, for standing up & speaking openly for the real reason we are all doing what we’re doing!! Let’s keep snatching souls out of the enemy’s camp, with the help of the Lord grace!

  26. Bob Wilcox said

    At the last major, I was in tears seeing so many become Born Again Believers now serving Jesus and serving one another. LIFE is Great.

  27. Joseph Keller said

    Amen Orrin, thanks for giving us the opportunity to be able to get the right information which has allowed me to chip away the glaze and open my heart and mind to be able see clearer and begin a journey toward truly finding the purpose for which god had intended me. Thank you and God Bless.

  28. Juleen Ray said

  29. Adam Rossman said

    Thank you for sharing the Good News in so many different ways!!

  30. Greg Oesch said

    I too am so grateful for the grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Your stand for Truth stiffens our Resolve to be more aggressive for sharing the Message. Thx Orrin. Greg

  31. Micah Kramer said

    His grace is so redeeming. Thank you for reminding us with this powerful CHRISTMAS message. What a gift we’ve been given. Amazing, indeed.

  32. Tim Miller said

    Well said, thanks for giving me and so many a way to get truth spoken into our lives though “Life”.

  33. Chad Sutkay said

    God’s grace is amazing! Great post Orrin, I love how LIFE doesn’t tell people what they should believe but rather delivers biblical truths for those seeking to understand and a culture and environment to do so.

    God bless,

  34. Thank you Orrin, I needed that this morning. I need to be focused on the things of heaven and what was given to me not of the earthly things. I need to try to walk the walk so everyone has no doubt who I am in Christ. So I can plant seeds!

  35. Bob Rasmussen said

    Thank you Orrin for your ever constant vigil to provide the truth through God’s gospel as the foundation of stone from which the TEAM and the LIFE business has been built!! It is empowering to know that the true purpose of our life can be fulfilled by following the path you have provided based on God’s providence for us all!! God Bless you all!! Bob

    I love this kind of material!

  38. Jason Halteman said

    Wow, great post Orrin. This was perfect timing since we were just discussing this exact thing with a brand new couple just the other night. Thanks for your insight.

  39. Kevin Hamm said

    Brave post Orrin, thank you for your example of courage. It is one of the many reasons I am inclined to seek your mentor-ship. As the Apostle Paul wrote to the Philippians, “observe those who walk according to the pattern you have in us.” Thank you for showing that pattern.

  40. Jim Martin said

    It was the people on this team that built enough relationship with us that they were aw to lead us to the truth about Jesus Christ our savior. Thanks for the leadership and having the courage to raise up leaders in this country to do the same. It’s what this country needs.

  42. M & L Parr said

    Orrin…. Thank you for reminding us that not only are we all sinners, but sinners saved by God’s loving grace. May we resolve to model Christ’s Love to a hurting world , every day of our life!!!

    May God Bless You and Laurie

  43. Ben Zeier said

    Thank you Orrin for re-sharing such a great message! May you & your family be blessed during this wonderful Christmas season! Merry Christmas. Proverbs 3:5-6

  44. Kim Decker said

    If we could only get people to listen, and pick up the BOOK and read… It was all spelled out for us. Thank you

  45. David nelson said

    Hi Orrin,
    In the Life business no one goes power player just listening to cd’s and reading books. Like Kirk b says, you have to take a chance, talk to someone and get the process started. Christianity is similar, Christ came to show us God’s love and make us fishers of men to build his church the body of people who worship God. Like Team many leave out the work of building the team and just talk of Love. Being saved and loved is only part of the requirement.

  46. robert wilcox said

    This is truly one of the BEST dvds ever! I never dreamed of learning more about my Faith in a business…. sorry this is not a business this is a culture a lifestyle a legacy that we can leave with our children’s children. God has blessed you Orrin and with your Leadership and his guidance millions of people will be blessed! Thank you!

  47. David Mitchell said

    This ties into the Advent season perfectly! The church I am a part of has had a series of messages “The Christmas Gifts That Won’t Break.” The blog parrells the messages perfectly. I have been sharing your blogs with the pastor & asst pastor now for quite some time. I feel very blessed to have the oppotunity to be apart of a learning organization that can share training materials & products with others of truth. God Bless Orrin as we get ready to enter into a new year, and bless many more. Have a wondeful Christmas!

  48. Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, George Guzzardo, Claude Hamilton, Bill Lewis, Dan Hawkins, and Tim Marks have such great blogs! I love the information being taught in the LIFE business. Can’t wait to hear about the new PC’s and RT’s in the coming months! Thank you!
