Living in the Gospel

120847__autumn-sun-trail-trees-leaves-green-yellow-grass-branches-forest-nature_p copyThe “power” for life that so many clamor for, and in some cases perform charismatic gymnastics to try to “receive the download,” is as simple as being reoriented to the gospel on a moment by moment basis. Every second of life, and every challenge life brings, is an opportunity to be reoriented to the truth that is in Jesus Christ in the gospel. Thanks be to God who has given us (note: past tense) the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. I don’t have to sing, shout, dance or engage in other diluted pagan practices to condition God to “release the victory” to me. I just have to believe and receive. It really works, and it is really that simple, and will always be that simple.

–Stephen R. Crosby
