The Ongoing Need For The Gospel

I so thoroughly and enthusiastically agree with the first paragraph of Tullian Tchividjian's post today at On Earth as it is in Heaven that I had to immediately copy it here with a hearty AMEN!
One of the most important discoveries of my life has been that the Gospel is not just for non-Christians; it’s for Christians too. I used to think the Gospel was simply what non-Christians must believe in to be saved, while afterward we advance to deeper theological waters. But what I’ve come to understand is that the Gospel is every bit as important for growing as a Christian as it is for becoming a Christian in the first place. The Gospel, in other words, is the fuel that makes Christians go.
Amen and Amen!
