Gospel Vision – See like God sees
The gospel, or good news, is the announcement of who Jesus Christ is and what He has done on our behalf – both make Him the most important man who ever lived. A gospel vision progressively sees our reality the way that God sees it:
– Jesus Christ is God, not us or anything we make the centerpiece of life
– He has died on the cross as our substitute, identifying and solving our greatest problem: sinful separation from God
– He has been raised to life, providing our new identity and the power to accomplish all that He desires of us
– He reigns now and forever, expanding our hope and directing our plans
This good news explains the world around us, ourselves and God Himself. To have a gospel vision, sees any situation, any emotion, any relationship, any task, any problem or any hope from this perspective. By God’s grace in Christ we will see like He sees.
