Your Relationship to the Gospel
As we consider this passage, we should consider our own relationship to the gospel. Are you like some: in general agreement with Christianity but you haven’t yet joined the game? Or, as a Christian, perhaps you believe the truths of the gospel, but you wouldn’t say they necessarily define you or control you. Or have other issues become more important to you than the gospel? This opening passage addresses all of those needs. Therefore, let us work through it and consider our relationship to the gospel.
