Gospel Centrality

 

 

 

Jesus and his Gospel are at the center of a healthy church. It is the cornerstone of spiritual stability. Yet it is something that requires constant attention. This 4-part series emphasizes prioritizing the Gospel, shaping a church culture around the Gospel, living in Gospel harmony, and anticipating the conclusion of the Gospel.

Anticipate Gospel Conclusion

Thessalonians 4:13-18

The good news of Jesus for today is also the good news of Jesus for the eternal tomorrow. This world is not all there is, and God is not finished yet. Jesus is coming back and will conclude all things in the new creation. That means there is hope in death because Christ defeated death and will bring you home with him forever.

Live Gospel Harmony

Ephesians 2:11-22

Gospel harmony is accomplished by Jesus Christ, the Peacemaker, who brings reconciliation with God which produces new relationships with former enemies.

Shape Gospel Culture

Galatians 2:11-16

What you believe about the Gospel impacts how you live and the culture you shape. Peter was driven by fear which led to hypocrisy and contributed to an anti-gospel culture. But Christ calls you to a Gospel culture founded on freedom that leads to integrity and fellowship. No one needs to hide or attempt to measure up. Rather, safe and secure in Christ, you can bring your new creation self to the table and invite others to do the same.

Protect Gospel Priority

1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Jesus and his Gospel are at the center of a healthy church. It is the cornerstone of spiritual stability. Yet it is something that requires constant attention. To that end, Paul reminded the church at Corinth of the Gospel he had already preached, and they had already believed. You never graduate from the Gospel and must keep it at the forefront of life and ministry.
