Tchividjian on the Gospel

This morning I was meeting with a friend talking about the gospel.  The conversation revolved around what it truly means to be gospel-centered.  I then read Tullian Tchividjian’s post on the gospel and Christian growth and he states very clearly what I was sharing with my friend.  Here’s his point:

We share a common concern that while there’s a lot of talk about gospel-centrality these days (something we’re all encouraged by) this doesn’t mean that everything which claims to be gospel-centered is. We both want you to be Berean-like in your evaluation of everything that comes in the name of gospel-centrality. So, here’s a good litmus test: whether it’s a sermon, a book, a blog post, or a tweet–if the lasting impression you get causes you to focus more on what you must do than on what Christ has done, the gospel has not been communicated and the communicator (albeit, unwittingly) is no better than the Pharisees who were charged by Jesus with “tying up heavy burdens, hard to bear, and laying them on people’s shoulders” (Matthew 23:4).
