CROSS Ministries 2nd Quarter Brief (2019)

Updated: Mar 7

Regardless of when you trusted Christ, the cross divides your life into two periods: “unbeliever” and “believer.” What one word describes the Bible message you most needed to hear as an unbeliever? It’s the gospel, the power of God for salvation (Romans 1:16).



What one word describes the message we most need to hear as believers? I get many different answers to that question, but most can be summed up with the word discipleship—demands and duties such as the spiritual disciplines, holiness, and service.

POINT OTHERS TO CHRIST



I don’t question our emphasis on discipleship. Jesus did say, “Go therefore and make disciples” (Matthew 28:19). If anything, we need more challenge and instruction on this. But there’s something more basic than discipleship, something that provides the necessary atmosphere in which discipleship can be practiced—the gospel.

…Only the joy of hearing the gospel, being reminded that our sins are forgiven in Christ, will keep the demands of discipleship from becoming drudgery. Only the gratitude and love to God that comes from knowing He no longer counts our sins against us (Romans 4:8) will provide the proper motive for responding to the claims of discipleship.

Excerpt from “Holiness Day by Day” by Jerry Bridges.
