Growing in Gospel Fluency

“Those who are growing in gospel fluency are experiencing ongoing transformation themselves. They are experiencing ongoing change as the truths of the gospel are brought to bear on their thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and actions, transforming them into greater Christlikeness every day.

They are growing up into Christ in every way because they are learning to hear and speak the truths of Jesus Christ into everything.” Gospel Fluency: Speaking the Truths of Jesus into the Everyday Stuff of Life,, p. 42

Jeff Vanderstelt on Becoming Like Jesus

“God also wants to rescue you from unbelief and sanctify you to become like Jesus. Sanctification is just a big word for becoming more and more like Jesus. You become like what you believe in. So, becoming like Jesus requires believing in him more and more in every part of your life. Sanctification is moving from unbelief in Jesus to belief in him in the everyday stuff of life.” Gospel Fluency: Speaking the Truths of Jesus into the Everyday Stuff of Life, p. 21

Simon Sinek on Goals

“The goal is not to be perfect by the end, the goal is to be better today.” Simon Sinek

This is a great way to think about your preferred future and the milestones along the way. Keeping one eye on the preferred future and the other on the next milestone propels you in the right direction. Identifying “the one thing you can do today such that by doing it everything else becomes easier or unnecessary”* will enable you to “be better” today and continue moving in the direction of your next milestone.

*The One Thing by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan
