Christians Need the Gospel

“Christians need the gospel as well as unbelievers. Whether we have been saved for two weeks or or twenty years, we all need to regularly hear the message of the cross and the grace and love of God in and through the Lord Jesus Christ. We need it because everything else in the Christian life flows out of it and depends on it for freshness and vitality. That’s why there’s nothing more thrilling to a believer than to hear the gospel preached in the power of the Holy Spirit. It melts the heart and stirs the soul–and may even cause him or her to want, if it were possible, to be converted all over again. If we lose sight of the cross all that the New Testament teaches as to its meaning and significance, we will be floundering spiritually.”

– Peter Jeffery, Believers Need the Gospel, p.8
