Reducing the message of the gospel to simply salvation, shortchanges the magnitude and depth of Christ’s death and resurrection. The gospel calls and compels us to live radical lives. There is nothing more precious than the image of God being displayed through His imperfect, but trans-forming people. As we learn more about Him, and as the gospel grabs hold of us, we look more and more like Him and our lives should OVERFLOW with graces (attributes) that extends to all people.
We must live grace filled lives. Transformative love, transformative service, transformative forgiveness and mercy, along with transformative power by the Holy Spirit that will enable us to live with grace for the sake of unity. As we live a life of grace, it will greatly impact unity not only with the women of Temple, but for all people we encounter, family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. This is the power of the gospel.
