Preach the Gospel to Yourself Oct 2, 2008
I just read it this week and found it very helpful. This short book (97 pages) is divided into four parts.
Part 1 is a series of thirty-one meditations on "Reasons to Rehearse the Gospel Daily." These Scripture-laden reflections will nourish your soul and thrill your heart with the wonders of God's grace.
Part 2 is "A Gospel Narrative: Prose Version." This is a short summary of the message of the gospel, broken down into four parts (The Glory of God; My Sin Against God; God's Work on My Behalf; My Salvation) and forty-one "verses."
Part 3,"A Gospel Narrative: Poetic Version," is the summary of the gospel in the form of poetry.
Part 4, "Surprised by the Gospel" explains the story behind the book - how a performance-driven pastor discovered the freedom and joy of justification by faith alone.
Here's an excerpt from Part 1 of the book. This is one of the thirty-one reasons to rehearse the gospel daily.
"The gospel encourages me to rest in my righteous standing with God, a standing which Christ Himself has accomplished and always maintains for me. I never have to do a moment's labor to gain or maintain my justified status before God! Freed from the burden of such a task, I now can put my energies into enjoying God, pursuing holiness, and ministering God's amazing grace to others.
"The gospel also reminds me that my righteous standing with God always holds firm regardless of my performance, because my standing is based solely on the work of Jesus and not mine. On my worst days of sin and failure, the gospel encourages me with God's unrelenting grace toward me. On my best days of victory and usefulness, the gospel keeps me relating to God solely on the basis of Jesus' righteousness and not mine."
Each of these meditations are written in the first person like this. Just reading them really is an exercise in preaching the gospel to oneself.
How did I come across this book? I read Andy Naselli's review in Themelios. It was so positive that I ordered it immediately. I'm glad I did. Take it and read.
Weary Mom's This Is For You! Jun 23, 2008
Are you a mom with little kids and not enough sleep? If so this is the book for you. I was tired and my traditional study methods were just not working. I tried hiding but no matter where I hid the kids always seemed to find me! This material was one piece God used to encourage me to stay the course in this "season of life" that seemed to bring out the worst in me. Praise God for His Son and the beautiful cross.
Must Read Apr 3, 2008
This book is a must read for new and mature Christians. It's an encouragement to see how reading, studying and meditating on the Gospel of Jesus Christ is life changing. I was so encouraged by this book that I sent a note to my niece in Riverside, CA to check out the author, Milton Vincent's church (Cornerstone Fellowship) in Riverside. Thanks to Rick Cobb for passing on this great little book.
An invaluable resource! Mar 24, 2008
This fantastic little book is worth EVERY PENNY of the $10.95 it costs! It is an invaluable resource for preaching the gospel to yourself. I haven't even finished part one, yet I already feel I've gotten my money's worth and so much more. I know the rest is equally wonderful from having read a previous electronic edition. This is a book you will return to over and over again!
A Joy to Read and Consider Mar 2, 2008
I absolutely love this little book. It was just released from Focus Publishing, and hopefully it will be available on this site soon. I've used beta-editions of it in Men's Bible studies, one-on-one discipleship, and for my own personal encouragement. I find Milton's insights refreshing, challenging, and thoroughly biblical. The gospel isn't just for unbelievers. It's good news for Christians everyday. Read it, savor it, live it.
