How often do you meditate on the gospel? How often do you unpack the deep truths of the gospel? How often do you stand back in wonder at the work of redemption by God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit? It would be good for your soul to take some time this week and unpack the gospel. Consider what R.C. Sproul says about the gospel.
“A Substitute has appeared in space and time, appointed by God Himself, to bear the weight and the burden of our transgressions, to make expiation for our guilt, and to propitiate the wrath of God on our behalf. This is the gospel” (R. C. Sproul, The Truth of the Cross, p.81).
Consider unpacking the following words: substitute, transgressions, expiation, guilt, propitiate. To help here are some suggestions:
- What does it mean that Jesus was your substitute?
- What does it mean that you transgressed God’s law?
- What does it mean that Jesus made expiation for your guilt?
- What does it mean that you are guilty?
- What does it mean that Jesus propitiated God’s wrath for you?
