“We’re enabled to live the Christian life… by means of the gospel”

“The gospel is not just the means by which we cross a line into the kingdom, its the means by which we draw down life for living the Christian life.  If we don’t go on in the gospel… we’re not saved.  Saving faith is persevering faith, and the faith that perseveres is faith in the gospel.  So beyond conversion, we’re trusting in the gospel.  Now, very practically, it means that we’re enabled to live the Christian life as God requires us to live it by means of the gospel.”

“I don’t ever get beyond the gospel.  I don’t leave it behind.  I live in it…”

HT: Brister
