This blog post from John Piper, a Minneapolis pastor, about the role of the Gospel in our lives really resonates with me.
Growing up Missouri Synod Lutheran in northern Michigan, I heard the Gospel every Sunday.
Through the years, the sermons all started to sound the same and, as a result, it would be easy to tune it out.
Now as I get older I can see that I shortchanged myself by not letting the full-meaning of the Good News of Jesus saturate every part of my daily life.
I think I'll print Piper's post and stick it in my pocket and pull it out often and pray that God will open my heart to the importance of what we are celebrating this Easter.
