Wednesday Riff: This Gospel

This gospel
This good news
This life-transforming message
Has it been made up?
Is it manufactured by people?
Contrived from a fertile imagination?

No.
This gospel
This good news
The life-transforming message
Has come from God
Through his son Jesus,
Anchored in our lives by his Holy Spirit

This gospel
This good news
This life-transforming message
Is it about pleasing others?
Or playing to the crowd?
Or winning influential friends?

No.
This gospel
This good news
This life-transforming message
Is about the kindness of God
The compassion of Christ
And the good fruits of the Holy Spirit

In our being
In our living
And in our relationships.
