Jesus Through all of Life

The Gospel, as the saying goes, is more than a steak on your plate before it's too late. It's more than a clean conscience, a ticket to paradise or an escape for sinners. From cradle to grave, the gospel is an all-of-life faith that puts Jesus Christ at the centre of everything.

There are several ways we might describe the Christ-centred life of God's people. It might be to have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16) or perhaps to bring every thought captive to the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).

I like the hope expressed by Paul in Titus 2:10,

"That in everything we might adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour. "

To adorn is to make beautiful. And that's what the gospel does. It makes things beautiful. The gospel regenerates, makes new and recreates. It makes of us and all creation, something beautiful, something goods. It teaches us what beautiful is and how we are to beautify life.

The gospel does this because it is itself beautiful - and we are learning to wear it.
