Christian Formation Classes
The Christian’s life isn’t simply transformed by the Gospel when we first come to faith in Jesus,
but every aspect of our life is continually transformed as we live within the context of the Gospel.
Living in Line with the Truth of the Gospel
August 25 – November 24
It is very common in Christian circles to assume that “the gospel” is something just for non-Christians. We presume that the Gospel is a set of basic “A-B-C” doctrines that Christians do not need to hear or study once they are converted. Rather, they should move beyond the Gospel to more “advanced” doctrines.
But, the great declaration of the gospel of grace in Galatians was written to believers who did not see the implications of the Gospel for life-issues confronting them. Paul solves the disunity and racial exclusivity not with a simple exhortation to “be better Christians”, but by calling them to live out the implications of the Gospel – to live in line with the truth of the Gospel. So, Christians need the Gospel as much as anyone! Problems come because we tend to lose and forget the Gospel.
We make progress only as we continually grasp and apply the Gospel in deeper ways, allowing the gospel to transform our hearts, our thinking and our approach to absolutely everything!
