While these upcoming tweets are scheduled for July release on my feed, I thought they should have a home here early. (Thanks, Scot). Happy head-messing!
The Gospel is the proclamation of all that Jesus is, not what we get because of who he is.
Saying the Gospel is all about personal salvation is like saying a car is all about its tires.
One reason many grow weary with our version of the Gospel is bc we talk more about an escape plan than we do about reformational living.
Corporate submission to the King trumps personal freedom.
Loving Jesus because of salvation is like loving your mom because she does your laundry.
Discovering that the Gospel is not about me and all about Jesus is one of the healthiest things an American can embrace.
Jesus is not your life coach. He’s King. Serving him invites the Holy Spirit, and he’ll lead you into all you need in his kingdom.
Our allegiance is pledged to King Jesus, not to a self-help menu.
If you want help, yes, embracing the Gospel will undo you.
Jesus didn’t die to give you personal freedom, he died because he’s the King who comes back from the dead. And he loved freeing you.
Proclaiming salvation is the Gospel is like saying that the scoreboard makes teams win games.
We must return to making the Gospel more about Jesus’ reign (which brought us salvation), not a self-help regiment.
The Gospel is not a gateway drug to lifestyle change. It is the message that Jesus is Lord and nothing else is, including our needs and wants.
Salvation is one benefit of the Gospel, but it is not the Gospel.
We do a disservice to Jesus and to people when we proclaim that the most significant part of the Gospel is salvation.
Emmanuel, God with us, astounds me.
“Jesus is Lord” should upset every balance in your life.
I don’t love Jesus because he saved me, I love Jesus because he’s God. That he does anything else for me at all is unspeakable wonder.
