I don't know who said it first, but I do remember clearly when I first heard it said:
A gospel that has not changed us has not saved us.
Boom! It sat on me with clarity and conviction. This message of a righteousness that has been won by Christ, through his atoning sacrifice on the cross, and extended to us as a gift of grace WILL produce change in our lives. It will! As we come to the end of Romans 3 we see how this is the case. Last week we looked at gospel-powered unity. In part 2 this week we see how the gospel powers urgency, unity, and lives lived righteously.
