What is the Gospel?

Here’s one helpful definition from Tim Keller, pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City:

“The Christian gospel is that I am so flawed that Jesus had to die for me, yet I am so loved and valued that Jesus was glad to die for me. This leads to deep humility and deep confidence at the same time. It undermines both swaggering and sniveling. I cannot feel superior to anyone, and yet I have nothing to prove to anyone. I do not think more of myself nor less of myself. Instead, I think of myself less.”

The Peasant Princess, Pt. 9: Do Not Awaken Love

After a week off for Thanksgiving time, we are back on at Friday Nights in Ferndale. I missed you guys last week and look forward to hanging out tomorrow night.

Love is not something that can be taken, only given. In his sermon on Song of Songs 8:1-7, Pastor Mark Driscoll expounds on the marriage of two servant lovers who reflect on the love they’ve cultivated. The sermon also includes some good practical advice for unmarried folks.

Come join us Friday, December 5th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for the ninth message in Mars Hill Church’s The Peasant Princess series, “Do Not Awaken Love.” Dinner begins at 6:00, teaching begins around 7:00. Childcare will be available.
