It's the Gospel: October 31

I’m not entirely happy to be leaving the gospel-filled month here at Rebecca Writes. Here is the last round up of gospelly posts:

Once again we start at Hiraeth, where Kim tells us that “The Christmas Message is nothing more or less than the Gospel Message.” Because, of course, there’s no better day than Halloween and Reformation Day to start thinking about Christmas, especially how we may keep Christmas well.

Then it’s over to Crossway.blog where we learn from Robert Yarbrough that “Suffering Creates Teachable Moments for Gospel Reception”.

This link I’ve stolen from today’s Reformation Day Symposium because it’s about the gospel. And I liked it, too. It’s Jared Wilson of The Gospel-Driven Church on The Five Solas for Evangelicalism Today. He says,

Our flesh cries out for works; we are all legalists at heart. We are constantly tempted to trust our productivity and our propaganda as self-justification, when Scripture bids us return to the self-reducing, God-exalting truth that we are justified by faith.

Hop on over there and read the whole thing.

And here on this blog I killed Reformation Day and our gospel-themed month with one post: It Was All About the Gospel. And while I was at it, I recommended some good gospel listening.

Update: At the Fieldstone Cottage, Dorothy is serving up a quote and a hymn about sharing the gospel.

I do want to say thank you to everyone who participated in my month of gospel by contributing a post or posts. I enjoyed them all and and I love the gospel more now than I did on October 1.

Yes, I have a theme for November, too. If you’ve been reading here for more than a year, you might be able to guess what it is. I’ll have the exciting details later today. And the details are exciting, because there be a draw prize for participants.
