An Introduction: The Unending Riches To Be Found In Christ - The Gospel (Part 1 of ∞)

This is this is the first part in a series of posts that has no definite end (thus the reason for the infinity symbol: ∞). The posts in this series are written in such a way that you can read them in whatever order you want. I hope that this series is encouraging and that the posts in it help you grow in your love and admiration for Christ.

It is an eternal joy to know that no man will ever be able to fully comprehend or explain the supreme beauty and worth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Proclaiming the good news through preaching "is a task of a painter without a brush. It is absolutely impossible! Your whole task in life is to do something that you know from the outset you will miserably fail in doing - and that is to paint a picture of Jesus Christ!" (Paul Washer - Quote of the Day #100)

Jesus Christ is the most intriguing person to ever walk on this planet. Everything was made through Him and for Him (Colossians 1:16). He is the great Light which the darkness of the world can never extinguish (John 1:5). By Him, believers of all ages are saved from the eternal wrath of God, which they rightly deserve. He is the way, the truth, and the life and no one comes to the father except through Him (John 14:6).

John Flavel, in his sermon The Fountain of Life, states, "Again, let Christ but manifest Himself and dart the beams of His light into their souls, it will make them kiss the stakes, sing in flames, and shout in the pangs of death, as men divide the spoil."
For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
~Colossians 1:13-14
