The Gospel

gospel-ortlundI recently had the opportunity to read The Gospel by Ray Ortlund. It was incredibly encouraging. He gets to the heart of what we need as believers. It is a heart-stirring book. Very short, so it is easy to get through. I highly recommend it.

Here is one of my favorite lines from the book:

“All week long we swim in an ocean of judgment and negative scrutiny… Then, on Sunday, we walk into a new kind of community where we discover an environment of grace in Christ alone. It is so refreshing. Sinners like us can breathe again! It’s as if God simply changes everyone’s topic of conversation from what’s wrong with us, which is plenty, to what’s right with Christ, which is endless. He replaces our negativity, finger-pointing, and self-hatred with the good news of his grace for the undeserving. Who couldn’t come alive in a community that’s constantly inhaling that heavenly atmosphere?”
