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!
