As you read the Old Testament, you get the sense that someone is coming. That you are not just reading about lives of people, but that the stage is being set for an amazing event.
That amazing event was the coming of God’s Son to the earth. His story (all the things that pointed to Him from the Old Testament, all the things He did on earth, His death and resurrection, His return to heaven, and the promise of His return to earth again) is the Gospel.
The Gospel is an unbelievably valuable commodity. It’s not to be hidden, not to be camouflaged, and not to be doled out in tiny doses to the worst people. It is more valuable than education. More valuable than money. More valuable than homes or clothes or cars or jobs. It is the most valuable thing on earth. If I had a pot of gold sitting in my living room, I would be cheating you if I gave it to you, instead of giving you the Gospel.
If you know the Gospel story, do you believe it?
And if you believe it, do you know why you believe it?
And if you know why you believe it, what are you doing with it?
