A Gospel Primer for Christians
by Milton Vincent
Do you struggle with sin and guilt and feelings of inadequacy in your Christian walk? Do you sometimes wonder how you will ever please a holy God? The gospel is the only way.
Every Christian knows the gospel. It is the good news of salvation for hell-deserving sinners through the person and work of Jesus Christ. But there is a misconception that the gospel's only purpose is to save the lost. When one believes, then we think the gospel has done its job. This limited view of the gospel as a one-time message cheats us of its full power in our lives.
When Milton Vincent struggled in his own walk with God, he wrote the fundamental truths of the gospel on index cards and began to rehearse and recite them daily. By preaching the gospel to himself, he discovered its transformative power and blessings in his everyday life.
Those index cards became this book of gospel truths along with 31 reasons we should all memorize and rehearse the gospel every day. The gospel is our daily need. It is freedom from sin's power, and it is the power of God by which we are transformed in His glory.
