Scriptures Alone! Grace Alone! Christ Alone!

  1. They are overwhelmed by the grace of it. ­– The true lover of the gospel never gets over the undeserved favor which God has shown him in choosing and calling him to believe and receive salvation.
  2. They are overwhelmed by the greatness of it. – The true lover of the gospel never gets over the wonder, wisdom, power and glory of the gospel. It is truly the greatest story ever told and certainly the greatest thing the sinner has ever known. And so they can never get enough of hearing it and will not (for long) take it for granted or listen indifferently or insensitively to it. A new and living heart will respond to words of life.
  3. They are overwhelmed by the person of it. -- The true lover of the gospel is one who is in awe of, amazed by, in love with and enamored with the Lord Jesus Christ. When asked about the Christ compared to others, the believer must exclaim, “He is altogether lovely!” A loving heart enthusiastically responds to the one it loves.
  4. They are convinced of the singleness of it. – The believer is convinced that the gospel of God’s sovereign grace is the only gospel, the true gospel, there is no other!
  5. They are convinced of the certainty of it. -- The one who knows and loves the Lord Jesus Christ, completely trusts Him and finds all their assurance in Him Who cannot fail and cannot lie.
  6. They have a desire for others to know it. – Those who love the gospel want their friends and family to hear it and believe it. Like the woman at the well, they say, “come see a man . . . is not this the Christ!” There is a sadness and concern for those who know not the true Christ.
