The gospel is more than a birth-to-death story. The life and death of Christ are part of an incredible golden chain that reaches from eternity past to eternity future. The best news is that we can enjoy the full benefits of the gospel by faith—no works, trust. Christ has done all the work for us. Our job is to apply and benefit from all aspects of the gospel. The critical question is whether we are fully understanding and applying the full measure of the gospel to our lives.
