#dailygospel

My project is mostly over. Mostly.

So, slowly, ever so slowly, I’ve started to come out of my work coma.

That may mean you see me a little more in this space. We’ll see.

In the meantime, I had something small I wanted to share with you all. It’s called #dailygospel. A few months ago I became convicted that I’m not good at applying the Gospel to every area in my life.

Think of it like this: We like to think of the Gospel as the diving board into God’s Kingdom. You get into Heaven and become a Christian by the Gospel. The problem is that the Gospel is not just a diving board, it’s also the pool we jump into.  We don’t graduate from the Gospel. We just continue to live in the light of it.

So while I can tell someone how to receive Christ, I’m less than stellar at applying the Gospel to every area of my life and the life of others. That needs to change.

So I launched #dailygospel. It’s a daily post on my main social media outlets (Facebook and Twitter) where I post a daily thought about how the gospel applies to everyday life.  I’m not sure how long I’ll keep doing it. Maybe a couple more weeks or months. Maybe I’ll just never stop. Regardless, I’d love it if you’d join me. Maybe together, we can get better at applying the gospel not just to salvation, but to everything we do.

    This is a wonderful idea!! Unfortunately, I don’t have a Facebook or Twitter account – and am using the last of my waning strength to resist being forced into being forced to use them.

    [heavy sigh…]

    None-the-less, I really REALLY love this idea – and believe with all my heart there is a great need for people to hear and examine the outworking of it!

    God bless your journey!

    Good to have you back – certainly been praying for you from time to time. I think there is often a disconnect between the two because we have moved to a Greek dualistic approach to spirituality rather than the Hebrew holistic approach. So we approach it from a mental point of view rather than learning in the living.
