We talk a lot about the gospel in our circles. We want our churches to be gospel-centered, our marriages to be gospel-centered, our parenting to be gospel-centered, our entire lives to be gospel-centered. But what does that really mean? There are some great books and studies that help us “get at” what it means to place the gospel at the center of our lives (see resource tabs above). But my study of the gospel lately has found me daily asking the question, “how do I apply the gospel here… and here… and here?”
My thoughts are running practical these days. I want to understand how to apply the gospel in real time. Like when my husband frustrates me or my kids disappoint me or I get a nasty email. What then? I want to apply the gospel in those everyday situations. (Ok, these usually don’t happen everyday, thankfully, but you get the idea.)
The blog posts here will relate to real-life situations… how to apply the gospel to everyday life. My everyday life. But my prayer is that these everyday questions and thoughts might help you to do the same.
