The Transforming Work of the Gospel
“I’m proud of the Gospel,” says Paul (Moffet Translation). When I’m proud of what I can do without God, it positions me like a raft trying to go upstream in gushing rapids. But when I’m proud of the transforming work of the Gospel in my life and others, I’m flowing in the mighty river of God, buoyed by His surge. My pride says I can change myself, but humility says only Jesus Christ can transform me. I have no grounds for personal pride, but immense reason to be proud of His power, declared in the Good News of Jesus Christ.
