Living The Gospel Or Just Preaching It?February 11, 2008
Last Thursday night, pastor Tim Bridges pointed out to our preaching group that its one thing to preach the gospel; another to live the gospel which we preach. Thus, he encouraged us to ask ourselves questions such as these (especially when we preach on these specific subjects):
Do you hope in God?
Do you rejoice during trials?
Is your life marked by perseverance, character, hope?
Do you have contempt for sin and compassion for those ensnared by it?
Do you believe the Gospel is the power of God to Salvation for everyone who believes?
