Don't Make The Gospel A Part Of Your Life, Make It Your Life-Frequently in life we hear that we need to make the gospel a part of our lives. While this is definitely not a bad thing to do a wise man once told me "It is not enough to make the gospel a part of our life. We need to make our life the gospel." Now what exactly did he mean? It means we don't go about doing the things of the world and then try to pick and choose gospel principles to try to apply to our life. While this is better than doing nothing it is still not the strongest way or path to take.
Let's look at another example, this time a real life example. Let's say every week we go to church. Once in a while though there is something fun and wholesome out there that takes us out of church, whether it be a camping trip, baseball game, etc. Like was stated all are wholesome activities that may even be incorporating gospel principles, like spending time with our family, but missing church to do so isn't really focusing on Christ and His gospel.
It all comes around to our decisions. Do we strive to be obedient or do we have selective obedience? When a decision is placed in front of us do we always make the gospel oriented choice because we've chosen to make our life centered around the gospel or do we waver? This will be the difference in claiming all of the blessings our Heavenly Father has to offer, or part of them. Let us all try to not only make the gospel a part of our life but make it our life. Great blessings will follow as we center and build that foundation on Christ. This I can promise you in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
