Piper on the Gospel

"The gospel is not just a sequence of steps (say, the 'Four Laws' of Campus Crusade or the 'Six Biblical Truths' of Quest For Joy). Those are essential. But what makes the gospel 'good news' is that it connects a person with the 'unsearchable riches of Christ.'"

"The gospel is the good news that the everlasting and ever-increasing joy of the never-boring, ever-satisfying Christ is ours freely and eternally by faith in the sin-forgiving death and hope-giving resurrection of Jesus Christ."
-John Piper from Taste and See
