Living a Life that Makes Sense

Francis Chan is the author of Crazy Love and a pastor in the San Francisco area. He is also a regular speaker at the Passion conferences and, in this message from the 2011 Passion Conference, he describes what it means to live a life worthy of the gospel.



We should live a life of suitable response to the gospel we say we believe. So many Christians choose what parts of the Bible they want to include on the scale, but God has called us to follow Him wholly. 

Philippians 1:27-28 (ESV)

27Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,28and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God.

How is your excitement about your relationship with the Lord? Francis said that he wants to have so much joy that everyone believes he was saved by a Holy God. This is living in a manner worthy of the gospel.
