What difference does the gospel make?
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the door to eternal life, but what difference does it make once we’re inside God’s kingdom? Jerry Bridges says the gospel is the very lifeblood of our walk with God day by day. It is the key to our salvation, for sure, but it is also the power for our daily progress in holiness. In The Gospel for Real Life, Jerry helps you:
·Experience freedom from the grip of sin and know the joy of pursuing holiness
·Revel in God’s acceptance of you and participate in His grace as a daily reality
·Expose the subtle acids of legalism in your life and enjoy the liberty of the cross
·Understand the crucial doctrines of the gospel and their priceless benefits to you
·Discover how to "preach the gospel to yourself daily" and so partake of its continuous transforming power
·Carry the true fullness of the gospel to a desperately needy world around you

Why do so many believers live in quiet desperation?
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the most explosive news of freedom the world has ever heard. Yet, why do so many of His followers experience so little of the gospel’s liberating power? Regrets over our past haunt us, fear and anxiety clutch at us, subtle legalism oppresses us, outright sin entangles us, and we spend much of the day without even thinking of God.
Jerry Bridges maintains that the poverty of actual Christian experience is the result of an impoverished understanding of the depths of the gospel itself. The key is not to try a little harder, but to know more fully the incredible work of Christ on the cross—and to live in a more vital awareness of that grace day by day.
Jerry does not flinch from the hard facts of human sin and God’s wrath—not exactly popular concepts today. But understanding them is absolutely crucial. For without a knowledge of the depth of our sin, we cannot experience "the unsearchable riches of Christ" that are available to us in the gospel. And when we know those riches, we are empowered to live every day "glorying in a sense of acceptance and the experience of grace."
This gospel is not just for the afterlife, but for today—it is the gospel for real life.About the Author:
