So many Christians don’t get excited because they do not see the gospel in all its polyphonic and glorious Technicolor but rather settle for a little mono 'black and white’ version. But just ponder on these questions for a few moments:
- Do you know the holy character of the Living God who created all things for his glory?
- Do you know who you were before you were saved: vessels of God’s wrath, God-haters?
- Do you know what Christ accomplished on the cross, bearing the wrath of God on our behalf, and how the Spirit applies this to the believer, that we are justified by grace through faith and seen as righteous in God’s sight?
- Do you know that Christ is coming again and that we will spend eternity with our Lord?
