Things To Remember – ‘Trust The Gospel’         

The gospel teaches us that salvation is always the work of the Savior, not the saved. Anything added to the good news of the Gospel of Jesus turns it into bad news. Remember to trust the gospel—it is God’s work, work done by the Divine, and it can be trusted.  

This week’s #WholeLifeTakeAways:  

  • How have you practiced “fixing your eyes on Jesus” this week
  • If someone asked you to define the “gospel” what would you say?
  • Since the word “gospel” means good news what is the absolute good news?
  • By placing responsibility for the gospel on us how does that change what should be good news into bad news?
  • What are some ways the church might be guilty of turning good news into bad news?
  • How is believing more of a result of Jesus’s work of reconciliation than the cause of that reconciling?
  • What do you think about this statement? “if my doing is how I get the gospel then, even though it is a small performance of mine, my salvation ends up being at least partially my doing not Christ’s. This thinking robs Jesus of his glory.”
  • When would the work of saving be the work of the saved instead of the work of the savior?
  • How good is it that God no longer counting our sins against us?

Andy’s TakeAway from Titus 3




Once . . .

We, too, were foolish and disobedient.

We were misled by others and

We became slaves

     to many wicked desires and evil pleasures.

Our lives were full of evil and envy.

We hated others and they hated us.




But then . . .

God our Savior showed us his kindness and love.

He saved us,

    not because of the good things we did,

    but because of his mercy.

He washed away our sins and

He gave us a new life through the Holy Spirit.

He generously poured out the Spirit upon us

     because of what Jesus Christ our Savior did.

He declared us not guilty because of his

    great kindness.




And Now

We know that we will inherit eternal life

      -Paul in Titus 3:3-7 NLT 1996
