Read this great blog from DesiringGod entitled, The Shelf Life on Preaching the Gospel to Yourself by David Mathis. I like how he talked about the combination of the gospel and the Scriptures and how we need both in our Christian lives. Here’s an excerpt from the blog (full article):
“The concern is that those of us convinced of our ongoing need for the gospel should take care that our so-called gospel centeredness not lead to laxity with the Scriptures. God has designed the two to be united. And what God has joined together, let no man separate.
Without relentless reorienting on the gospel, our study of the Scriptures quickly veers off course. And without keeping ourselves freshly filled with the Scriptures, our gospel self-preaching soon runs on empty.”
