We are reminded of some aspects of what a gospel centered life looks like in today’s passage. We see a heart of thanksgiving, a life of faithful service as a servant of Christ, and the triad of faith, hope, and love. Paul speaks of the gospel bearing fruit, and I pray that we would be a congregation in which the gospel continues to bear fruit. I pray that we would grow in our understanding and appreciation of God’s amazing grace every day, and that we would be a congregation that looks more and more like Christ with each passing day.
In His Grip,
Q. 34. What is adoption?
