The Gospel
28 Jul - 4 Aug 2019

  • Intro

    God seeking His own glory. The statement should not sound strange to our ears. But it so often is. What could be better than 'God giving us Himself' in His glorious rule that includes both salvation and judgment? This is the question Dr. Jim Hamilton raises and tackles for us so we may grow to love God for who He truly is. As our sin is seeking our own glory, what is best for us and others needs to be understood in terms of God's glorious grace that is not an ignoring of His judgment. The Gospel defines for us what is righteous, what is deserved, by God and man. It therefore is a life-changing lesson of learning to give God what He already deserves.

    From the first to the last book, the Bible tells a story of salvation that man must heed to know God in His glorious self. In this good news Christians have placed their trust, but even as Christ's disciples, we are not always clear about how every part of the Bible explains this Gospel. This year's Creation to Consummation (CTC) conference will allow every Christian to learn of the central theme of the Bible from beginning to end. Seeing God's glory in the unfolding story of God's kingdom and the salvation of His people in His justice and mercy will enable Christ's church to grow in its faithfulness to Jesus. Christians from all walks of life have often struggled with questions relating to the problem of evil, God's sovereignty, the relationship between God's justice and judgment in the Bible and so on. Our struggles here and in other issues reflect our need for a clear and coherent explanation of the life of the Christian under the God who seeks to establish His glorious rule through His Son's fulfilment of the Scriptures. Jesus preached a 'baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire' (Matt 3:11) and our understanding of the issues dealt with at CTC 2019 will affect directly our ministry and the preaching of the church. Through the evening talks, the morning workshops (CTC Behind The Scenes) and the final gathering to think through what it means for God to be glorious in Himself in terms of the health of a local church, this year's conference promises to be a core topic in the GGF calendar for years to come.
