Vintage message from October 8, 1989, recorded at Calvary Chapel of Mira Mesa, San Diego, California.
“What are we believing in? Are we believing in our ability to live good lives? Are we believing in our ability and our knowledge of the name of Jesus Christ? Do we live day by day in depression because really we do not go back and look at the gospel and what the gospel is?…There’s only one thing you can depend on; one thing that you have to hold fast to, and that is the gospel itself, the cross and the resurrection…The gospel is Jesus Christ crucified, raised again from the dead in victory for our sin…There’s nothing else that we can live by. If we lose sight of that gospel, then all of our works, all that we’ve done is in vain.”
