For the Sake of the Gospel
Building Bridges in a Wall Building World
Our world loves to divide people . . . and that’s not really new! The apostle Paul lived in a divided world: Jew and Gentile, slave and free, male and female. He considered it a mystery and a privilege to bridge the divide (Eph. 3:1-13), and he did it for a singular reason: for the sake of the Gospel (I Cor. 9:19-23). We who bear the message of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5:16-21) cannot be content in a divided world. The Gospel compels us to reach our neighbor. It unifies us with our fellow ambassadors. It transforms our priorities.
