I am in Fort Worth TX on the campus of Southwestern Seminary this week for the Land Institute Summer Institute dealing with a biblical view of economic issues. We have listened to two presentations so far today. A couple of questions: are we truly engaged in our world if we fail to understand some of these most basic questions: Why do people act the way they do? What are the consequences of the choices we are making?
I am more aware than ever of the life-altering impact of the gospel. The truth of what God has provided in Jesus Christ is so much more than merely where you will spend eternity. Too often when I present the gospel I fail to think through the full impact of the gospel on an individual’s life. Lord, help me carefully present the gospel and thoroughly follow up with a robust approach to discipleship that helps new believers assimilate all that You have done for us through the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
