The gospel is…the word about Jesus Christ and what he did for us in order to restore us to a right relationship with God. – Graeme Goldsworthy

The Irrationality of Sin

Before the message of the gospel illuminated our hearts and minds, we were irrational regarding our sin; beyond the moment of iniquitous delight, we thought nothing of the eternal consequences that awaited us. Let us praise God that the gospel now assists us to see with eternal clarity the truth of the following statement, and let us pray for those in our lives who do not see the forever folly of their transgressions. God have mercy.

What desperate madness it is for sinners to bring down on their heads the eternal wrath of God, and this for the short feast and running banquet their lusts seek after – a joy that lasts but an hour at best.” – William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armor (58)
