The Rest of the Gospel
By Dan Stone and Greg Smith
Having God's forgiveness is wonderful. Spending eternity with God is great. But for now, where is the abundant life Jesus promised? Why is the Christian life such a struggle? Because getting forgiven is only half of the gospel!
The Rest of the Gospel is not us striving on our own to be "good" Christians, but Christ in us, living His life through us as we rest in Him.
