Living in Light of the Gospel

“We walk by faith, not by sight.”
~ 2 Corinthians 5:7 (ESV)

I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Chaotic Life of Lauren or not, but Lauren has been running a series this month on a theme of holiness. I had the privilege of wrapping up the series with a post on living in light of the gospel. If you have been following me for long, you know I love me some Jesus. The gospel is like my favorite thing. I love it more than coffee and books. More than my husband. It’s the one thing I could never live without. This post goes into more detail about how the gospel pours into my life each and every day.

Gospel Living

To give you a little bit of an idea about what’s ahead, gospel living is about more than sharing the gospel with others. It’s about preaching it to yourself each and every day. Every moment of every day. That’s kind of why I started my website Candidly Christian (which is on a short hiatus – more details coming soon). We all need the gospel. We all need Jesus.

This is one of those topics I could write about forever (books coming soon) but for now, I’ll just point you to my post on Lauren’s blog.

If you aren’t familiar with Lauren’s blog, she writes to help other Christian moms manage their busy lives with the hope of making more time for the important things like faith and family. She hosts guests regularly. This is actually the second time I’ve been on her blog (you can find my first post here). Oh, and she also has a Facebook group. So if you are interested in checking that out. Click here.

    We should be living out (and working out) our salvation every day, so that other people would see the God in us and be drawn unto Him!

    Thanks for the practical steps of making the Gospel part of our everyday lives. I love the list and counterarguments for when I have negative thoughts!

    Nothing can separate us from God’s love. His grace covers it all! Beautiful testimony!

    What a beautiful truth! We ought always to live in light of the gospel as it shapes everything we do! There is enough there to meditate on for eternity!

    The word ‘holy’ means set apart. This is quite a challenge for me. How do we remain set apart and yet minister to the people on their lives.

    Great read! Everyday gospel living is something I’m working on. It’s nice to see other perspectives on it too!

      Thanks, Kristina. It’s been a passion of mine for years now. It’s something I don’t think I’ll ever do perfectly, which makes me even more thankful for it’s message.

    Jesus is definitely the best life source around. His timing is perfect in even in the mundane things.
