As we head into summer, we want to change things up a little bit. Traveling, vacations, and time outside late in the evening don’t lend to longer Outward posts to read. So, we are going to be sharing some short videos over the summer that are gospel-saturated. In fact, let’s just call it the “Gospel Saturated Summer Series.”
We want you to be immersed in the actual gospel as an encouragement to your desire and efforts to evangelize. There will be variety in the videos, but they will all be focused on the gospel. You may be tempted to watch one or two and say, “yeah, that was great, got it.” Resist that temptation. Take note from week to week of what is similar in the videos and what is different. Think about how to incorporate the best of what you hear into your own heart and mind. As always, we share these videos as tools to help us, but we don’t claim every word in every video is perfect. We are intentionally choosing a variety of people and styles to explore what is helpful and encouraging to us and those we hope to see come to love the gospel.
For this first week, we are starting strong and steady with Sinclair Ferguson and R.C. Sproul answering the question at a Ligonier Conference. R.C. states that teaching a seminary class he would be happy if he got good answers from 10% of the students. Would you be in that 10%?
Before you watch the video, could you pause and take a couple of minutes and think through (or even write) your answer to: What is the gospel?
Got your answer? Ok, watch the video and take note of 1 or 2 things that stand out to you:
Here’s a suggested exercise for this whole series: Each week take note of 1 or 2 things that really stand out to you and write them down or put them in an email draft to yourself or in a note on your phone. At the end of the series, you will have some really helpful notes on the gospel for yourself and others.
