It’s Friday morning and that means it is time for me to introduce you to new and old friends that are making gospel connections. In todays post Bob Kauflin helps us to connect the gospel to worship and singing.
Deadly Gospel Disconnect #2: Knowing the Gospel Factually. Before reading today’s post, please take a minute and please read: “What’s A Gospel Disconnect”. This will help you better understand today’s post.
So, as you read in the last post, I am no electrician! But what if I was an electrician and what if I had electrical knowledge? What if I was a Master Electrician (Allen L, Tony L, Chad S, and Justin B….stop laughing!) and yet, I did not practice safety? Odd right? More than odd! Try…..STUPID!

Before we dive into making Gospel Connections we need to look at two deadly gospel “disconnections”! My hope is that by first looking at the disconnections we will then be able to make good connections.
On Fridays I hope to introduce to you some friends who are making Gospel Connections. Today, meet Mike Bullmore Pastor of CrossWay Community Church in Bristol, WI. Mike’s sermon titled: The Functional Centrality of the Gospel has been a favorite of mine for quite a few years. I have listened and read this sermon a number of times and have benefited from it in so many ways. I am hopeful that Mike’s sermon will serve you in helping you understand further what I am driving at here on the Gospel Connections blog. So, grab a coffee and notepad, or download this and listen to it during your commute and…. enjoy!
“The Gospel is to be something more than just something we know….”
As I mentioned in the previous post, there is a gospel resurgence in our day. And let me say loudly, I LOVE IT! This has given birth to many sermons, books, blogs, and more. It is a very good thing that the evangelical community preaches and writes to bring clarity as to: what the Gospel is! In our day, too many professing Christians are unable to communicate the gospel. Not necessarily because they are afraid to, but because they do not know the gospel. We need the true gospel, the gospel we read of in our Bibles. This is the gospel that men have died defending in days gone by and in our day as well. In our day, some well intentioned believers: water the gospel down to a statement such as….. God is love. And yes, God is definitely love! His Word tells us this much. But, God is MORE than love. (See post coming soon: What Is The Gospel?). It is my desire to help you to not only KNOW the gospel but also help you to live IN THE GOOD OF THE GOSPEL!! What does this mean?
Not another blog……! I begin this post by saying: “I don’t assume any of us needs another blog!” So, why am I starting a blog? The Gospel Connections blog has developed due to convictions I have largely gained from preaching God’s Word. I have had the incredible joy of preaching at Trinity Community Church for the past 17+ years. I love this church! And I love the community this church happens to reside. (Titusville, Florida)
