In the following post I'm going to give an outline of the four sermons we just heard at our church. The hope of these sermons was to draw our attention to the importance of a gospel-centered life as individuals, and a gospel-centered mission for our local church.
Also, I’ve compiled a series of links to all the books that were recommended over the past month as part of the series. I mentioned in one sermon that C.J.’s book is a must-read for every Christian, and I reiterate that here.
