John Piper gives a brief, but passionately joyful description of how Reformed Christians view the gospel. Whether we are told to "live the gospel," "make the world a better place through the gospel," "live the abundant life as the gospel," etc. etc. etc., what is often left out of the gospel conversation is, ironically, God! It is His gospel and it is the gospel of His Son Jesus Christ.

Good post on the Reformation Theology site on what the gospel is and what it is not. The church needs this kind of basic instruction more than ever it seems. When our Christian testimonies and activities highlight more what we are doing than what Christ has accomplished, we need to return to the gospel of Christ which is the true power of God to all who believe!
