Recently I wrote about my buddy Todd Lubiens’ P.G.T.Y. challenge. Today I came across this diagram and an accompanying article by Drew Goodmanson, a diagram and article that do an excellent job of illustrating and explaining the importance of P.G.T.Y. (preaching the gospel to yourself).
If Buzzard Blog is known for anything, I hope this blog can be known for constantly talking about the gospel, about the often overlooked reality that 1) the good news gospel of Jesus is far more incredible than we imagine and 2) the gospel is essential not just to becoming a Christian, but also to growing as a Christian. Here’s the first paragraph of Goodmanson’s article:
At Kaleo Church we teach that the Gospel isn’t just a means of salvation, but it is the very way we grow as Christians. When Paul writes his letters to the Galatians or Corinthians, he addresses each problem in the Christian community with the gospel. (eg., Peter, who eats stops eating with the Gentiles isn’t told to ‘stop’ which would be legalism, but is told that his actions aren’t walking in line with the gospel. His motivation for change is a reminder of who Christ is and what he has done for us and how that sets us free by grace.)
