The gospel is not all pie in the sky when you die… there’s also meat on the plate while you wait! – When Jesus announced the good news of the kingdom, he was talking about the IN-BREAKING and DYNAMIC rule of God to set all things right, he was not just talking about what would happen after people died. “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” – The gospel is not just a promissory note; it’s not all future benefits. Christians are also meant to enjoy wonderful and abundant life now. And we have been given the Holy Spirit to help us and empower us.
