>In a meeting today with some pastor friends, I was reminded of how the Gospel must be functionally central in our ministries. This means more than just having the tenets of the Gospel on a doctrinal statement or evangelistic thrust. The Gospel must motivate, energize, and direct all of our Christian ethics. I was first introduced to this concept by Mike Bullmore back in 2006 at a Sovereign Grace Leadership Conference. My perspective on ministry hasn’t been the same since. Fortunately, he presented the material again at a conference last year. Here’s the link. Whether you are in full-time ministry or not, at the very least it will shift your paradigm for how the Gospel must inform our very actions as Christians.
