The good news is still good news

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
Romans 1:16

Have you messed up today?
If you’re breathing, you have. I know—because I have, too.

But the good news is that there is still good news.

The gospel doesn’t become null once we cross the line from dead to alive. It’s still good news that God continues to rescue us, every day, from our messes, from our sin. wheel

Tullian Tchividjian says it well in Jesus + Nothing = Everything:

Once God rescues sinners, his plan isn’t to steer them beyond the gospel but to move them more deeply into it.

That’s because the gospel isn’t the first step in a stairway of truths but more like the hub in a wheel of truth.

After all, the only antidote to sin is the gospel—always has been, always will be.
