“The longer I live the less optimistic I am that I will end without sin and the more grateful I become for the blood of Christ imputed to me. As I grow older I do not feel myself becoming gloriously holy but I find myself feeling great love for the gospel.” J. Piper
There are so many needs in the world around us, so many burdens that need to be carried, so much pain that needs comforted, so much wisdom that is lacking and yet our greatest need is not relief from any of these things; our greatest need each and every day is the Gospel.
If I have no water but have the Gospel I will soon be made whole. If I have no food or shelter, but have the Gospel I am more than a conqueror. If all else is stripped away, except the Gospel, I have abundantly more than I need.
That is why Jesus could say in Mark 8:35 "For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the Gospel’s will save it." Or in 10:29 Jesus said, "Truly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands, for my sake and for the gospel, 30 who will not receive a hundredfold now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and in the age to come eternal life."
So as we go about our day we must remember that all the "good" we are doing is nothing compared to what the Gospel will do. God has prepared work for us to do and given us the strength and desire to do them, but we must be sharing the Good News as we go, because we all need this more than anything else.
