Gospel-centered theology isn’t always good theology.
When the gospel is a formula plugged into the equation of salvation it reads like condemnation to the ones who haven’t done their math.
When the gospel is a story about the heart of God it reads like an invitation to those who haven’t known the love of their Father.
The gospel is not an equation in which a big equal sign is wedged between us and heaven. It is the story of heaven breaking into our world and God’s kingdom coming to this place. It is a picture of the heart of God.
He died for you.
His kingdom is near.
He’s welcoming you.
He’s beckoning you.
