The Power of a Counterintuitive Gospel
The gospel’s power lies in its counterintuitive, paradoxical, and sometimes offensive nature. Often, we are tempted to be ashamed of it, or we attempt to make it more “relevant” and palatable to unbelievers. Yet this robs the gospel of its power. Kyle Idleman, author, speaker, and pastor at Southeast Christian Church, urges us to embrace the upside-down nature of the gospel’s power, because within it, we find our very life.
