All We Have: Gospel

I’m quoting this in my message today.  It is from What is a Healthy Church Member? by Thabiti Anyabwile.

“The greatest need in the church today is the gospel.  The gospel is not only news for a perishing world, it is the message that forms, sustains, and animates the church.  Apart from the gospel, the church has nothing to say—that is, nothing to say that cannot be said by some other human agency.  The gospel distinguishes the church in the world, and steels her people against the fiery darts of the evil one and the false allurements of sin.  The gospel is absolutely vital to a vibrant, joyous, persevering, hopeful, and healthy Christian and Christian church.”[1]
