Resources to help us understand that, when pressed into our hearts by the Spirit, our greatest resource for living the Christian life is the gospel itself.
Their delight is in the glory of God in the face of Christ, and on this gospel they meditate day and night. They are like trees planted by the streams of living water that yield the fruit of the Spirit in their season (Psalm 1.2; 2 Cor 3.18; 4.4; John 7:37-38; Gal 5:22).
Now I would remind you, bothers, of the gospel I preached to you… that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures… (1 Cor 15:1-4).
