Read the Label

“Paul writes in Romans 1:16, ‘For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes…’ Yet if we could label our churches with the nutrition facts found on products at the grocery store, I reckon many would need to say in the fine print, ‘Not a significant source of gospel.’ Are we ashamed?”

“If the gospel is the power to save, shouldn’t it be the meat of the message, not reserved for the add-on invitation or for a special service every few weeks?”

– Jared Wilson, from Gospel Wakefulness, p. 188
