Jesus Wants The Rose!: The Gospel v. Religion


It's been about a month since Matt Chandler's surgery...I'm praying that the Lord will continue to be with him in his recovery.
Here he is, at a Desiring God Conference from last year, sharing what the difference is between the Gospel of Christ and mere inoculated, religious language. We see and hear from the example given here that sometimes we allow our silly myths and vain philosophies to get in the way of what Christ actually says that we are to be in the world - In it and not of it (John 17:15). All too often, there is the temptation to withdraw ourselves from sinners, which leads us in to sin as well (Galatians 2:11-14). My prayer is this - may we all be convicted, challenged to have a more Christocentric gospel that will lead others with the help of God's grace to Jesus also (Matthew 9:13; Mark 2:17; Romans5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21).


Soli Deo Gloria,
Shon

What did he need surgery for in the first place? Surely god could have prevented that and the need for the surgery would never have arisen.
