Who swings the gospel hammer in your life? (Luther/Keller)

Tony Reinke posts from Martin Luther and Tim Keller
[The gospel] is also the principal article of all Christian doctrine, wherein the knowledge of all godliness consisteth. Most necessary it is, therefore, that we should know this article well, teach it unto others, and beat it into their heads continually.

Some respond, that this is preaching to the choir - but the issue isn't having the information beated into our heads (though we do need some reminder) it's having it capture our hearts, kill our sin, show us the way of godliness, and more than anything else fuel our relationship with Jesus - for in the gospel he comes to us!
