Getting the Right Foundation

“Now our whole foundation is shaking!” These words came from a minister during a Gospel of Grace seminar held in Africa eight months ago. His words are still fresh in my mind and encourage me as we keep running with the vision. 

What then was the teaching that brought this kind of a reaction?  It was a short teaching on the old versus the new covenant, Law versus grace, the ministry of condemnation versus the ministry of righteousness, and self-righteousness versus God’s righteousness.

In 1 Cor. 3:10-11 Paul says, “According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder I have laid the foundation, and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

If we are mixing the old and the new covenant, we will discover, just like the minister did, that we have laid another foundation! Now it’s time to reestablish our foundation – let’s build on Jesus and His finished work alone!

This month we are continuing on the topic of getting a Gospel Revolution. Be encouraged and transformed as you study the two important teaching articles we bring this month, from Steve McVey and David Sterling. Also be aware of the news on the changes done to GGN.
