We Never Outgrow Our Need for the Gospel

A friend (thanks Shelby!) passed along this short interview with Jerry Bridges, author of the books I gave away at the end of October.  He's 82 years old and still "preaching the gospel to himself every day."  I am so thankful for God's work in Bridges' life and how He has used it to change mine.  Things get pretty bad in my heart and around me when I try to do life any other way than beginning and continuing in the gospel.  Please take a few minutes to give this interview a listen.

I'll leave you with a quote from an Advent reading about Jesus becoming flesh and dwelling among us.  Christmas is all about the Good News!
'From the creche to the cross is an inseparable line.  Christmas only points forward to Good Friday and Easter.  It can have no meaning apart from that, where the Son of God displayed his glory by his death.' 
Grace is a person; Truth is a person - Jesus, come to you in the flesh. 

~Joseph "Skip" Ryan (quote from John Donne's Book of Uncommon Prayers
