God Wants Our Hearts
Through the gospel God moves our hearts from selfish narcissism to ones of sacrifice and living to glorify God and love others. Only the gospel has the
power to break the chains of rugged individualism to move our hearts in order to submit to living in real community with their brothers and sisters in
Yet, it is only when the gospel is left in its purity, alone, undiluted with law or conditions, or necessitated actions; this is not to say we should not preach the law with the gospel, but that both should maintain their unique, distinct purposes and beauty. Only when the gospel comes in the form of 150% proof does it have the power to rob the moralist of his need and desire to control his and other’s behavior, and the legalists need to perform to be approved or accepted. The more we come to understand what Christ did on the cross, the more beautiful the gospel becomes, the more real the pain that Christ suffered becomes to us, it is impossible for it not to bring changes in us, beginning with affections being awakened and heart obedience.
