“… the gospel is the work of God to restore humans to union with God and communion with others, in the context of a community, for the good of others and the world.
… God designed the gospel for us.
God designs the gospel for more than my goodness and my sin and my redemption and my liberation and my experience and my chance to go to heaven when i die. the gospel is about us before it is about me. my own i is in the Us, and a gospel of i without an Us is a gospel about me. i’m glad the gospel is for me but it is about more than me.” ~ Scot McKnight (via Marko)
