I want the whole gospel:Every single ounce of truth; give it to me straight just like it is in the Bible.
I want the whole gospel:Don’t dilute the living water—it might not quench my thirsty soul.
I want the whole gospel:Turn on the light of Jesus Christ and don’t shield my view—I need every beam of His radiant glory to dispel the darkness in me.
I want the whole gospel:Don’t block the door, or I might not get through.
I want the whole gospel:I need an accurate map to the narrow road, because only a few are finding it.
I want the whole gospel:Because I am wholly lost, God’s verdict is wholly just, and my damnation is wholly certain.
My heart is wholly depraved and my sin is wholly mine.
My efforts are wholly futile and my escapes are wholly hopeless.
I need a whole Savior, whose whole suffering, wholly satisfies a holy God.
Please, please don’t cut the corners. It’s appointed unto man once to die and I have to be sure I get it right.
I have to have the whole gospel—give it to me straight. Nothing else will do!
Yes…God help us, let’s give the whole gospel.
