Could the gospel be lost in evangelical churches? In this book, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative churches. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints you with the revolutionary truth of God's gracious acceptance of us in Christ. The gospel is the power of God, and the only true source of joy, freedom, radical generosity, and audacious faith. The gospel produces in us what religion never could: a heart that desires God.
The book’s core is a “gospel prayer” by which you can saturate yourself in the gospel daily. Dwelling on the gospel will release in you new depths of passion for God and take you to new heights of obedience to Him. Gospel gives you an applicable, exciting vision of how God will use you to bring His healing to the world.
The Power of the Gospel
I'm so glad I bought this book. God spoke to the heart of Pastor JD and from it comes enlightenment to the everlasting love of Jesus Christ. I have been saved since I was 15 years and have never been exposed to the truth of the Gospel as this. I have a MA Degree in Pastoral Counseling and my professors never addressed the Gospel in such a way that has impacted my life as this book.
J.D. Greear reminds us of the power of the Gospel to radically change us, not because of what we do for God but because of what God has already done through His Son, Jesus Christ. Pastor J.D. reminds us to rest in what Christ accomplished on the cross and allow the great love of God to be the lone motivating factor that drives everything we do...even rest.
Breathless by the Gospel!
This book had me reeling with knowledge of Gospel-freedom, Gospel-desire, and Gospel-adoration. Rather than crumbling under the weight of what I need to do for Christ, I rise in joy in the excitement and veneration for what He has done for me through the Cross! The Gospel is the point- this is where it begins, and this is where it will be completed. The book reminds us of our often futile works, when done without the core base of the Gospel as the reason for them. Instead, you are left with the attitude of "with what Christ has done for me, how could I not??" Thank you, Pastor JD, for this reminder!
