Rick Joyner once wrote a story about the Christian faith in which he explains that going back to the basics is very rich. Milton Vincent has more eloquently provided that richness in a simplistic treatise. The book postulates that one should continually go back to the gospel again and again for the entirety of Christian life is found in the gospel. Indeed, the entire New Testament is the gospel.
I especially like his testimony at the end of the book. “Released from the burden if having to maintain my righteous standing with God...” is a profound statement that many Christian may hear, but do not let sink into their hearts. Indeed even in my house, we struggle with appeasing God in hopes of winning His favor. Too often we forget that His favor has already been won by Christ’s work on the cross.
I also like his idea of writing the gospel truths down and carrying them with me. I carry around loads of other baggage, why not carry this too?
