Clarify the Gospel


“[W]hen we assume the Gospel instead of clarifying it, people who profess Christianity but don’t understand or obey the Gospel are cordially allowed to presume their own conversion without examining themselves for evidence of it – which may amount to nothing more than a blissful damnation. Our ministries are ultimately about ‘ensur[ing] salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you’ (1 Tim. 4:16).”

Mark Dever and Paul Aelxander, The Deliberate Church: Building Your Ministry on the Gospel (Wheaton: Crossway Books, 2005), 43.
