“Yes, I’m saved. Now what?”
Working the eternal implications of a timeless gospel into a daily life. June 10th, 2018
"Studies and surveys show as fact, that the life goals of the average young adult Christian today are virtually indistinguishable from their secular counterparts. They want to have a great marriage, a beautiful family, a successful career, enough money to not worry about money, follow the deepest desires of their hearts, and, in general, be comfortable.
Put differently, the average young adult Christian today knows and can share the gospel news that Jesus died for my sins so that when I die, I can go to heaven. The average young adult Christian cannot, however, explain to people how the gospel affects their self-image, their relationships, their finances, their health, their career, their identity, etc.
That’s a radically different life goal than the Early Church, which sought the goal of Kingdom Building. In this talk, we'll look at the "Now What" part of the Gospel story. If you know that your final chapter has already been written (Eternity with Christ), how should that reality impact the way we live as young men and women today?"
