The Power of the Gospel

“In order for us to think of worship in gospel terms, we need to be careful not to think only in evangelistic terms. While the gospel includes the good news of God’s grace for those who would turn to him in faith, the gospel is not just for outsiders and unbelievers. Great power lies in the line popular among young Christians today: “We must preach the gospel to our own hearts every day.” This ethic is not just about repeating portions of the gospel that lead to new conversions; it is about engaging the power of the good news that God has provided his grace to save, to sanctify, and to equip his people for this day, every day, and forever.” – Bryan Chapell (Christ-Centered Worship, Page 21-22)
