The Gospel is a Story of Glory

Preacher: Jerry Cisar

Most sharks have to move to breath and therefore cannot stop moving forward. This is how they force water through their gills so they can get the oxygen they need. Humans are much the same way when it comes to glory. We were created to bear glory, God’s glory.

In our rebellion against God, we’ve substituted our own glory, a weak substitute that is actually killing us slowly (like carbon monoxide seeping into a home). But we know we must keep moving toward glory. We need to be redirected to true glory. That is what the Gospel is all about, for the human problem is that because of sin, we lack the glory of God (Rom. 3:23).

This week in our series, Gospel Clarity: What is the Gospel? Why do we need it? we will learn why the Gospel is all about glory. In fact, why Paul even calls it “the Gospel of the glory of Christ who is the image of God.” Indeed it’s not just about the glory of Christ (kept only for Him), but about how Christ’s glory increases as He shares it with us.

Join us in worshiping our risen and reigning King.
