δια το ευαγγελιον

(for the sake of the gospel)

“I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings” (I Corinthians 9:23) πάντα δὲ ποιῶ διὰ τ εὐαγγέλιον, ἵνα συγκοινωνὸς αὐτοῦ γένωμαι. (vv.19-23)

Living this way requires a kenosis mindset (see: Philippians 2:3-11). 

Three tensions we must embrace:

  1. “Culturalizing without compromising”
  2. “Permeation without contamination”
  3. “Identifying without losing our identity”

Three challenges for the Church: (as articulated by the late John R. W. Stott)

  1. Breaking out of the safety of our Christian stockades
  2. Entering sympathetically into the dilemmas of our contemporaries.
  3. Applying Biblical solutions to unmask false and harmful ideologies.
