Sufficiency in the Gospel
Read this excerpt from Milton Vincent’s fine meditation on redemption, A Gospel Primer for Christians, and be encouraged.
The gospel serves as the means by which God daily constructs me into what He wants me to be and also serves as the channel through which He gives me my inheritance every day of my Christian life. Hence, it could be said that the gospel contains all that I need “for life and godliness.” It is for this reason that God tells me to be steadfastly entrenched in the gospel at all times and never to allow myself to be moved from there. The mere fact that God tells me to stay inside the gospel at all times must mean that He intends to supply all of my needs as long as I am abiding in that place of luxury.
If the gospel seems far away from you today, remember your position of standing in Christ. He keeps you in grace to bountifully supply all your need. Rejoice today in his deep care for you.
