What’s the message of the Bible in one sentence? That’s what Dane Ortlund of Crossway Books recently asked some scholars and pastors.
Great question, huh? What would you say?
Here is my offering:
God created man in His image, but the first man rebelled against Him, breaking man’s fellowship with God and subjecting our entire race to the curse of death; but God, in His great love, sent His Son to take the punishment we deserved; and now He commands men everywhere to repent of their sins and believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior; all who repent will be saved from the coming wrath and will dwell with Him forever.
I would add, thanks be to God, whose name be forever praised!
