The Gospel Is A Complete, Whole View Of Life

“The gospel is not something partial or piecemeal: it takes in the whole life, the whole of history, the whole world. It tells us about the creation and the final judgment and everything in between. It is a complete, whole view of life, and many are unhappy in the Christian life because they have never realized that this way of life caters for the whole of man’s life and covers every eventuality in his experience. There is no aspect of life but that the gospel has something to say about it. The whole of life must come under its influence because it is all- inclusive; the gospel is meant to control and govern everything in our lives.” -- Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression
