The Free Gospel

Here is a great quote from Thomas Chalmers, who was a Scottish minister and a leader in the Church of Scotland in the 1800’s. One can never stress enough how important it is to focus on how the gospel – the good news of Jesus, is free. Freely we receive it by the merit of another, and free grace has the power to change hearts and to change the world! May this always be part of our confession at Riverside Community Church.

The freer the Gospel, the more sanctifying is the Gospel; and the more it is received as a doctrine of grace, the more will it be felt as a doctrine according to godliness. Salvation by grace – salvation by free grace – salvation not of works, but according to the mercy of God – salvation on such a footing is not more indispensable to the deliverance of our persons from the hand of justice, than it is to the deliverance of our hearts from the chill and the weight of ungodliness. Retain a single shred or fragment of legality with the Gospel, and we raise a topic of distrust between man and God. We take away from the power of the Gospel to melt and to conciliate. For this purpose, the freer it is, the better it is.”
