As some of you know, I have a Luthersque interpretation of scripture. Luther maintained a Christ and Gospel-centered understanding of scripture. Luther knew the old testament was primarily a fore-shadowing and path laid out for Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ himself said the old testament pointed to him.
Where I tend to deviate from some Lutherans, however, is I believe the Gospel has major implications in a persons life. I call this the application layer of the Gospel…. where many Lutherans might say the Gospel is applied to us. One one level I agree with that statement … but much of scripture discusses the application layer of the Gospel and the application layer of the New Coventant in Jesus Christ for Christs’ bride — the church. I yearn to apply the freedom of the Gospel to my life in a God-pleasing way and much of my BLOG is related to the application of the Gospel! Read a few of my BLOG topics and you will see what I mean.
Thats all for today.
