Most of our evangelistic messages focus on “How” someone can be saved. But the Gospel also tells us “Why” we’ve been saved. Understanding both is critical in making disciples of Jesus who make more disciples.
In this episode of the Everyday Disciple Podcast, I explain the “two lenses” of the Gospel: Power and Purpose. A failure to embrace and consistently proclaim both is what has led to such a discipleship deficit in the Church. Let’s change that.
In This Episode You’ll Learn:
- Why the Gospel is not just about believing a set of historical facts that gets us into heaven.
- How the lack of understanding both lenses of the Gospel has led to our decline in discipleship.
- A full, practical way to explain both the Power and the Purpose of the Gospel.
- The Plan Jesus gave the Church to accomplish the Purpose of the Gospel. (Powerful!)
From this episode:
“The work of the gospel is what sanctification is all about. Sanctification is not… not believing in the power of the gospel and then working hard to be better Christians. That was the problem with the Galatians. If we really believe in the power of the Gospel then we begin to submit every area of our life. A disciple of Jesus is a person that is walking in such a way that every area of their life is now being submitted to the gospel.”
