Gospel and Poor: Some Personal Reflections

Over the past couple of weeks, I have taught on the relationship of the gospel and the poor which apparently is a hot topic in some evangelical circles.  I initially intended this to be a short addendum to the 20-week teaching on “The Gospel Centered Life” from last year, but when I asked our adult members if any of them had done an in-depth study on what the Bible says about the poor, no one raised their hands.  Well, that was a month ago, and since then there has been dozens and dozens of hands raised with questions abounding.

While I have not completed our study on this subject, I thought I’d post some blogposts on this subject from our church blog.  Perhaps some of this may be of some interest to you.

> From the Life of Christ
> From the Death of Christ
> From the Resurrection of Christ

* Additional Thoughts

> Two Ways to Live – Regarding the Poor

Tim Keller has done a lot of thinking on this topic as well, and I encourage you to read this article and/or watch the video below.
