We loved you so much that we shared with you not only God's Good News but our lives, too. We pleaded with you, encouraged you, and urged you to live your lives in a way that God would consider worthy. For He called you to share in His Kingdom and glory.
1 Thessalonians 2:8, 12
We were created as people with a purpose, and that purpose is exemplified in the gospel. The gospel is the power of God. When it is declared from the Scriptures, amazing things happen. Lives are changed, idolatries flee the human heart, families are restored, neighborhoods are renewed, and whole cities can be changed. So we will preach the gospel. We will counsel with the gospel. We will celebrate the gospel in song. We will remember the gospel with bread and cup. We will learn to live in the light of the gospel in every sphere of life. From our personal lives, to our homes, to our neighborhoods, to the vocations we take in the city.
