Preach the Gospel to Yourself

MicrophonePastor and writer Tullian Tchividjian reminds us we must preach the gospel to ourselves as an ongoing part of our Christian life.

Tchividijian summarizes the gospel this way:

“If God has saved you–if he’s given you the faith to believe, and you’re now a Christian, if you’ve transferred trust from your own accomplishments and abilities to Christ’s accomplishment on behalf of sinners–then here’s the good news. In the phraseology of Colossians 1, it’s simply this: you’ve already been qualified, you’ve already been delivered, you’ve already been transferred, you’ve already been redeemed, and you’ve already been forgiven.” (Jesus+Nothing=Everthing, p. 94)

Now there’s a message worth preaching!
