The gospel is bigger and smaller than we often think. Sometimes we can’t imagine the scope of the gospel, as news so good that it changes everything—society, culture, creation. We diminish its power.
Others of us can’t imagine the subtlety of the gospel, that it brings us exactly what we need in Christ: acceptance, approval, forgiveness, newness, healing, worth, purpose, joy, hope, peace, and freedom all in Jesus.
The gospel is bigger and smaller than we think, as big as the cosmos and as small as you and me. It is the good and true news that Jesus has defeated sin, death, and evil through his own death and resurrection and is making all things new, even us! Be encouraged.
