Be faithful not only to the content, but also to the intent of the gospel

The gospel is not a creed to be remembered, but a message to be proclaimed. It is not an answer to a question, but a question that seeks people’s answer.

You can be faithful to the content of the gospel, but unfaithful to the intent of the gospel. That is, you can hold all the answers, all the verses, all the knowledge. But keeping it to yourself… that’s being unfaithful to the intent.

The gospel’s intention is to go to the ends of the earth, to every nation and tribe and people. That’s not simply all types of people, but to every person. The gospel’s intent is that everyone hears it’s content.
