The G.O.S.P.E.L. - D.A. Horton

This guy is LEGIT! I love D.A. Horton's passion for the gospel. He is the creator of the acronym, G.O.S.P.E.L., a clever way to explain the gospel in urban context:

G - God's Image
O - Open Fellowship
S - Sin Introduced
P - Penalty and Price
E - Enter Jesus
L - Life Everlasting

There is something I find in common with Horton. I line up with him in his vision on the gospel in ministry: Contextualizing the gospel without undermining the biblical content. He believes biblical ministry needs to have one foot in evangelical academia and the other in the church, so his service for the gospel contains a healthy biblical exegesis and exposition of the Scriptures in order to explain the gospel clearly and boldly to others in the urban context. I love this perspective because it is so "Pauline" you can say (cf. Rom. 1:16; 2 Tim. 2:15).

Enjoy the short message below about sharing the G.O.S.P.E.L. to those in an urban context, and how you can share the gospel in your own urban context for the glory of God!
