Peter Mead looks at the different ways preachers approach the gospel and asks a question:
Do you preach a pressure message that constantly urges people to do the work of growth? Do you preach a momentum message that simply looks back to the wonder of their identity change at conversion – a message proclaiming what God has done in Christ that does stir gratitude and does stir life change and doesn’t promote sinfulness, but, maybe, does still lack something?
Yes, I have, and yes, I have. And the third way
Peter offers is spot-on.
