The Gospel

Preach the gospel to yourself every day.
Every.  Single.  Day.  
And when your fallen heart grows numb, find a different way.  
Say it.  Write it.  Sing it.  Photograph it.

Friends, we're bad news.

We need to plunge the needle of the Gospel down into our veins, and we need a blood transfusion that will save us from ourselves.  We need some good news.

Jesus gave his blood for transfusion and transformation.  He came to pay the penalty for our sins, and He came to set us free from the jaws of death.  Jesus died so we might live by the light of His life and His love.

Jesus is the Good News, and He is our only hope for eternal life with Him.


I'll preach the Word today, Friends, and you turn the pages.
Then two robbers were crucified with Him, one of the right and one on the left.
Matthew 27:38
Lord, keep us from the things that rob You of Your glory and fame.  Keep us from sin.
And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying,
"Eli, Eli, lemma sabachthani?"
that is,
"My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

Psalm 22:1
Matthew 27:46b
Lord, we forsake You continually.  Help us to live in Your presence.
But the angel said to the women,
"Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.
 He is not here, for He has risen, as He said.
 Come, see the place where He lay."
Matthew 28:5-6

Lord, You Are Alive!  
Let our lives reflect that we belong to You.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Matthew 28:19-20

Lord, Thank You that You are always with us.  
Please help us to be bold in proclaiming the Gospel to the lost.

For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
Romans 6:14

Help Your people to live by the law of Grace that saved us.

We will not forget You, Jesus.
Thank You for dying so that we might LIVE.
