The modern-day gospel says, “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life. Therefore, follow these steps, and you can be saved.” Meanwhile, the biblical gospel says, “You are an enemy of God, dead in your sin, and in your present state of rebellion, you are not even able to see that you need life, much less to cause yourself to come to life. Therefore, you are radically dependent on God to do something in your life that you could never do.

I want passionate feelings to characterize my relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Of course, I want to be perfectly obedient to the Lord, but I want the obedience to spring out of a passionate love for Him. I want to obey Christ not simply out of discipline of duty, or because of some reward or fear of punishment. I want to serve Him simply for the joy of being able to please the one I love so much. If discipline is what ultimately drives us in our pursuit of Christ, eventually we will give up that pursuit. But a man in love, or a woman in love will never quit…. I want my life to be characterized by an unrestrained affection for the Son of God.

We should not be entertained by the sins for which Christ died.
