The Gospel Is Not What Happens Inside of Us

The resurrection is not simply an amazing miracle to which we yield our assent; it was the event that secured the objective justification of every sinner who is identified with Christ by faith.  So the gospel is not what happens inside of us, which varies from person to person and from week to week, but the news of an objective accomplishment by God that cannot be diminished, altered, improved or completed by us.
