The Gospel Narrative The Gospel is a message about love and justice. The irony is that we are undeserving of the former. We are only deserving of God’s wrath, because we have sinned against a good and holy God and have attempted to defame His glory. Paul teaches us in Romans 1 that we have traded […]
