We live in a broken world. We, too, were once broken and lost but God intervened and saved us. This passage reveals a Gospel living sandwich: Do good in this world (verses 1-2), rely on the Gospel (verses 3-7), do good in this world (verse 8). We have the opportunity to have a significant impact within our various circles of relationships. Yet, our ability to do so is connected to and empowered by the Gospel.
