Brothers and Sisters,
If you think about it, the gospel of Jesus Christ is really disturbing. It is really disturbing in a very good way. Consider these words from Sinclair Ferguson,
“There is an element in the Gospel narratives that stresses that the coming of Jesus is a disturbing event of the deepest proportions. It had to be thus, for He did not come merely to add something extra to life, but to deal with our spiritual insolvency and the debt of our sin. He was not conceived in the womb of Mary for those who have done their best, but for those who know that their best is ‘like filthy rags’ (Isa. 64:6) — far from good enough — and that in their flesh there dwells no good thing (Rom. 7:18). He was not sent to be the source of good experiences, but to suffer the pangs of hell in order to be our Savior.” Sinclair B. Ferguson, In Christ Alone: Living the Gospel-Centered Life (Orlando, Fl.: Reformation Trust, 2007), 17.
Praise God for this disturbing and delightful news!
Warmly in Christ,
