The first thing for the Christian is to recover the gospel – to relearn and fall in love again with that historic, beautiful, redemptive, faithful, demanding, reconciling, all-powerful, restorative, atoning, grace-abounding, soul-quenching, spiritually fulfilling good news of God’s love………….Following Jesus in the twenty-first century demands that his disciples relearn the full meaning of the Gospel story, recovering the culminating theme of restoration that runs throughout the whole of Scripture. This begins by seeing the Gospel as the central solution to humanity’s age-old questions and self-conflict. But this story isn’t static; it dynamically continues to unfold today, displaying God’s original goodness and ultimate intention for all his creation. The good news for humankind is that we are all made in God’s image, given a path through Jesus to be reconciled from our sin, and purposed to partner with him to renew and restore the creation to its fullest potential.
