Are You Fluent In Gospel?
This book will really shake you up, but because the message of the book is all about the gospel of Jesus Christ, It will put you back together again. In fact, you will walk away with a greater awareness of who Christ is and what He has done for you. You will see more of how God truly desires his grace to not only change your destiny but change your daily life.
Many Christians can articulate the core message of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, but how do we communicate the gospel and its implications concerning our every day situations. How does the gospel change my perspective about work? What does the gospel say about my response to those who abused me? How does the gospel call me to respond to my current enemies?
Jeff Vanderstelt instructs the reader on how to become fluent in gospel. He calls to go beyond the simple statements that we recite to one another such as:
“Just Keep Going. God is good.”
“I’ll pray for you.”
He calls us to draw out one another’s heart thoughts. He instructs us to ask questions such as:
“Who is God?”
“What has God done (which reveals who God is)?”
“Who am I in light of God’s work?
“How should I live in light of who I am?
This book has greatly challenged me to not only ask better questions when shepherding others’ hearts but to ask better questions of my own heart. This book will challenge and stretch your understanding of the depths of the gospel and its implications for our everyday life. It will also give you a head start on becoming fluent in the gospel.
