Though we may not have many resources at our disposal;
Though we may not have the facilities to do all we wish;
Though we may not have a location accessible to the great majority of our population;
Though we may not have the ability to have “big names” to come and preach and sing on a regular basis (if at all);
. . . we have the gospel—the life-changing, sin-killing, Christ-exalting, Good News that resounds of what Christ has already done, and does not rely on what we can do. Where the Word is preached, where the people of God are gathered, where the ordinances are observed and cherished, and where the people are witnesses as they leave their time of corporate worship, there Christ is in the midst.
Focus not on what you do not have, but be faithful with the trust God has given to us—for you have the gospel. Do not forget it, hide it, add to it, take away from it, or replace it with the law. The law reveals sin (which is a good thing), but the gospel redeems from sin (which is a great thing).
We have the gospel!
