“I Am Not Ashamed of the Gospel”

When it comes right down to it, there is really only one thing I as a pastor have to offer my congregation—and only one thing that the church has to offer the world—and that is the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Certainly we can do many useful things. We can help the poor, befriend the lonely, and comfort the sorrowing. We can encourage struggling marriages and families. And we can champion certain moral causes that could have a positive impact on our society. But there is nothing particularly Christian about these deeds of kindness. The one unique and truly indispensable thing we as Christians have to offer the world is the gospel of Jesus Christ. . .
