The Here and Now

Brian McLaren said, “The Gospel is not an evacuation plan for the next world.”  How true!  The Gospel tells us how to live here and now.  Love your enemies.  Pray for those who persecute you.  Cross the road to help someone lying in the ditch.  Feed the hungry.  Help the sick and dying.  Be patient and humble. The Gospel is a how-to book.  Its subtitle could be “How to Make This World aBetter Place.”

Can you think of other sub-titles for the Gospel?
