What I Want to Instill in My Students
“Love of the gospel and love of Christ, that this is the only sufficient and satisfactory answer for changing peoples’ lives, because the gospel is, as Paul said, ‘the power of God unto salvation’ and there is nothing else to add. So if my students go out into the churches where they are called and they preach the gospel with crystal clarity and they magnify Christ and his penalty-paying substitution and his probation-keeping on our behalf, fulfilling all that the first Adam failed to do, then I’m happy.”
